He credits his family, friends, ambulance crew, and above all, God for getting him through the days, weeks, and years since.


Jamie is a compassionate, lively, inspirational, motivational, humorous, and forward-thinking speaker that openly shares his experiences and lessons learned with an eagerness to genuinely help others.
