#195 Jack Jablonski
Tom spends the majority of the episode showering Jack with compliments and some of it asking him questions.
Jack Jablonski was a sophomore at Benilde-St. Margaret’s High School in St. Louis Park, MN when a hit during a high school hockey game on Dec. 30, 2011 caused an injury to his spinal cord (High Tetraplegia to the C4 vertebrae). The initial prognosis was grim, and Jack is still unable to control muscles from his chest down. But his progress has been steady because of the recovery therapies that were available for him, first at Abbott Northwestern Hospital’s Sister Kenny Institute and then at Courage Center in Golden Valley, Minnesota.
