Keynote Speaker: Jason Schechterle
After serving four years in the Air Force, at the age 26, Jason achieved his goal to work on the streets of Phoenix as a rookie police officer. Shortly after his first year of service, Jason's life took an unexpected, tragic turn, when a taxi cab crashed into the rear of Jason's patrol car. Upon impact, Jason's car burst into flames, trapping him inside. Through a series of miraculous and fateful circumstances, Jason survived the crash. He suffered severe burns to over 40% of his body, which drastically altered his appearance. He has undergone more than 50 surgeries just to have the ability to accomplish simple, daily tasks we often take for granted. Donated skin grafts help saved Jason’s life. Eventually, Jason had to retire from the police force. He is now a motivational speaker, sharing his inspirational story with others throughout the United States.
The 2017 Legacy of Life Experience engaged and educated the more than 360 people who attended and inspired many to become registered organ, eye & tissue donors. For sponsorship opportunities, email firstname.lastname@example.org
