John won the Paralympic silver medal just 6 years after having his left leg amputated. A world class athlete who qualified for two Olympic Trials, and a prospect for Army Officer School, John was on the success career path. The injury temporarily halted his career until he found his new normal. He qualified for two Paralympic Games (Olympic Competition for athletes with physical disabilities) and won the Paralympic Long Jump Silver Medal in Sydney, Australia while setting the American record in the process. John is now the change management expert in strategic communication and was appointed by then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as one of 8 members to advise her on disability foreign policy. He founded the United States Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Sport Program which shows wounded, ill, and injured veterans how to use sport as a tool for their rehabilitation and he is a home-made funnel cake connoisseur.
