Jason Rodie was born on August 16, 1979 in Los Angeles, CA. From his first breath, life was a challenge- an opportunity to overcome and never give up. Having complications from being 4 months premature; developing Cerebral Palsy as a result of being dropped on his head as a new born; delay in walking- dragging his leg and being told he would be wheelchair bound for life; being bullied as an adolescent; having a run with cancer; complications of his liver and being told he had 3 months to live as a young adult.
Rodie could have given up at any point during these challenging life events, but instead his spirit persevered, his determination and will strengthened, he became clear that his purpose on this Earth was to use his story to inspire, motivate, uplift and empower all walks of life- declaring that anything is possible!
Anything can be overcome if you see it, believe it and put in the work toward making it happen. Balancing the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of life is something Rodie prides himself on, which has been crucial in his personal growth.
Family is his driving factor- the motivation that keeps him propelling forward intently. Rodie’s current venture is training full time for the Paralympic team- Goal is to get to Rio, Brazil 2016 for Track & Field and serving his community by actively participating in local charities.
