I am Jordan's mom and feel so very lucky to be part of this foundation. Over the past 12 years I have seen our recipients achieve what would not have been possible
without Jordan's vision and help from the foundation. We have funded swimming legs, dancing legs, golf legs and running legs for ordinary kids and for para Olympic medal winners.
Being part of this work has brought some sense of reason to an otherwise senseless tragedy. I feel like I am the lucky one.
I was privileged to meet Jordan and his family shortly after his accident upon his return to Chattanooga. I joined the board just after the foundation was created. I have met many amazing people in the amputee community through my work as a prosthetist but never have I met a 16 year old new amputee who envisioned a foundation to provide prostheses for children that might not have a chance to receive one - before he himself was fit with prostheses. From that day on Jordan has focused his efforts on this one goal. Through the JTF he has improved the lives of many children and in the process become a role model for many. It is my great honor to serve on this foundation board.
My experience with JTF has been short, but powerful. The organization is comprised of an impressive group of folks that have an unparalleled desire to help those within its reach and capacity.
