Jason Schechterle, was a happily married father of two serving others as a Phoenix police officer when his worst nightmare happened. His patrol car was hit by a speeding cab and burst into flames, causing 3rd and 4th degree burns over 43% of his body. But after 56 surgeries, this miracle survivor fought his way back to a life that he now wouldn’t trade with anyone in the world. 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How to recognize a career calling
  • The power of learning gratitude from a young age
  • The small miracles that occurred the day of the accident that saved his life
  • Why not knowing the extent of his injuries at first was a good thing
  • The importance of going through all of the emotions you are capable of
  • The power of humor in overcoming tragedy
  • How to focus not on what you’ve lost, but what you’ve gained
