Jon fell in love with ocean when he lived in Florida, and always wanted to learn to scuba dive. He did snorkel in the Florida Keys and knew one day he would dive below. In 2007 Jon was in a motorcycle accident that broke four bones in his neck, resulting in quadriplegia. Jon now works…
Matt’s brother Tony heard people talking about us at Mammoth Lake (good news travels even faster!) and called Matt to see if he wanted to go scuba diving. Of course he said yes, Matt’s spinal cord injury caused quadriplegia from a motorcycle accident in 2004.
Specialist Dillon was guarding a roadside bomb in Iraq when a sniper shot him in the neck, an injury that caused quadriplegia. Still an active young man, Dillon is looking forward to diving and continue leading a mobile life. He’ll be training with WWDiving in Humble, TX to prepare for the “Brac for More” trip…
Corporal Christopher Hull spent more than 3 years in the Army before he was injured in a car accident in 2007 while on leave. Now a quadriplegic, he is still active and looks forward to diving with the pirates in Cayman Brac.
Traci was injured in a car accident and has been a quadriplegic since then. She owns and maintains a boutique in her hometown of Rowlett, TX and was joined on the trip by her sister, parents and new paraplegic friend, Domonic Corradin. If Traci had a pirate name, it would be “cupcake”.
Alan is a very active grandfather, business man, rugby player and a quadriplegic. He was injured nearly 30 years ago but it has never stopped his enjoyment. He was joined by the team of his wife and two daughters, who talked him into wearing this lovely Ethel Merman dive attire.
Juana and her husband, Rafael, had been divers for years before a traffic accident left her as a quadriplegic. Now they are diving together again and loving it. They are also the parents of two lovely girls who will be divers soon.
