Jeff lost the lower part of one leg in a farming accident when he was eight. Since then, he’s pushed the envelope on what a para-athlete can do. He’s a a three-time paralympian, two time world champion, and the national record holder with a 63-27 double-double in the sport of wheelchair basketball.
