About our speakers: On March 26, 2001, Jason Schechterle, then a rookie City of Phoenix Police Officer was stopped at a red light. Suddenly his vehicle was struck from behind by a taxi traveling at over 100 miles per hour. Jason’s car instantly burst into flames, and he was trapped in the burning vehicle for eight minutes. He was covered in third- and fourth-degree burns on his face and torso, and lay in a coma for over two months. Ten years of painful recovery and 52 surgeries later, Jason began traveling the country as a motivational speaker, sharing his story of hope and optimism. He resides in Phoenix with his wife and three children. Jason is the subject of the recently published biography Burning Shield: The Jason Schechterle Story.
