    My brother Jordan, was in a traumatic car accident on November 22nd, 2015 at 1:00 pm. Jordan had many sustain injuries, but the worst ones was paralyzed from the chest down and injuring his spinal cord at the T-6 level. Today, Jordan’s main goal is to walk again. I have the honor and privilege of interviewing my brother about his story and journey.

 

Question: Tell us about the accident?

“Three years ago on this day, I was in the car with 5 passengers and did not have a seatbelt. My friend Austin (the driver) ran through a stop sign and wrecked his car on 422. We got hit by a truck with a trailer and Christmas tree on the back. The car flipped over three times and until then, another car hit us. I did not remember the car accident at all but medical reports said I was conscious and told first responders that I could not feel my legs. This was after my one friend Josh also became conscious and crawled out of a broken window because that was the only way out of the car. Josh saw me bloody up and blood everywhere so he went to go get help. They had to use the Jaws of Life to get me and two passengers out of the car.”

Question: What kind of injuries did you suffer from the accident?

“Broken jaw/fractured my upper jaw, incomplete Thoracic nerves at the T 6 level, broken shoulders, broken collarbone, tore muscles in my shoulders, contact sliced my cornea, broken ribs, and punctured lungs.”

Question: How many days a week do you go to the Gym and Physical Therapy?

“I go to Physical Therapy and Gym once each day and Thursday, I go both the gym and pt. Weekends I am off.” (He goes to the Gym Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and PT Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday)

Question: What was the best place you have traveled and why?

“I do not really travel but Colorado was my favorite. It was beautiful and lots of stuff to do and this was right before my accident so I was glad I got to travel to Colorado.”

Question: What kind of goal do you have in the future?

“Number one is definitely is walking again, going to college for Physical Therapy, and following a goal of helping many people in many ways that I can with my story.”

Question: Did you have any fears growing up?

“Not really, There is always a fear of losing someone. But the accident opened my eyes of reality and life of what can happen.”

Question: Do you have a favorite artist or favorite song/album and tell me why?

“I have many favorite artist and songs. But right now, I have been listening to Lil Wayne and his new album (Tha Carter V). His album has a great message and good lyrics of stuff that I relate to.”

Question: Are you an Introvert or Extrovert?

“A little bit of both at times, I am Introvert then Extrovert because I put a lot of time recovering and walking. The spare time I do have is resting my body. It is a lot of work.”

Question: What is your ideal future college and future job?

“My future college is Slippery Rock University and for my job, I wanna be a Physical Therapist and also be a Public/Motivational Speaker. I wanna write a book about my journey.”

Question: Favorite video game?

“Fortnite”.

Question: Do you have any hobbies?
