Keynote Presentation featuring Jessica Long

Jessica Long

Jessica Long is one of America's most decorated Paralympic champions - and her life has been nothing short of amazing.

Born to a teenage mother in Siberia, burdened by congenital defects in her legs, and placed for adoption at 13 months old, Jessica was able to persevere to become one of the most decorated female athletes in U.S. history. However, it was not without setbacks.

At 18 months old, Jessica's legs were amputated below the knee due to a rare bone disorder. But, that didn't deter her adopted family. They would not let her physical differences limit her potential. So, with an unrelenting determination and an unending belief in herself, she has been able to reach the pinnacle of her sport and maintain her position amongst the best in the world for over a decade!

Now, as one of America's most decorated champions, she focuses on winning in the water and inspiring others outside of it. Join us for her inspiring story of courage and tenacity during the keynote presentation.
