“Just a quick email to express how truly inspired I am by Jason’s story and his delivery of such personal life-changing events!!! I cannot even count how many people have approached me stating how much they enjoyed listening to Jason, there were tears in the crowd, laughter, and very eager engaged audience members. WOW!!! The next time I begin to start a complaint; I pray I stop and begin to make coffee instead.”
“I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your participation in the Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) leadership forum earlier this month.
Your personal story exemplifies turning challenges into great opportunities. Your public speaking skills and your ability to connect with the audience are exceptional. I continue to receive emails from RMS employees who want to convey their sincere appreciation for having had the opportunity to hear your story.”
“Jason, as you can imagine, you continue to be the topic of conversation today. I wanted to share one of the comments I received:
‘I wanted to personally thank you for bringing in Jason. No motivational speaker has ever touched my heart more than he did. He was a true inspiration.'”
Many people face formidable hardships in their lives, but few possess the internal fortitude to transform that experience into something exceptionally inspirational.
Through his outreach, Jason has motivated and improved the lives of so many people in difficult circumstances while at the same time achieving a personal fulfillment that he might have never otherwise imagined. I am honored to have met him.”
“I would highly recommend Jason Schechterle as a motivational speaker for your company or organization. He does an excellent job tailoring his message to your audience via personal accounts and multi-media imagery.
As a former police officer and burn survivor, his story will both inspire and captivate attendees.”
I continue to receive emails from employees who want to express their sincere gratitude for having had the opportunity to hear his story.”
“I want to express my deep gratitude for the opportunity to experience your presentation during our staff meeting. Your ability to focus on the positive is incredibly inspiring, and your story deserves to be shared widely. I have always been drawn to positivity, but your way of expressing it is truly extraordinary. I have no doubt that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
Thank you for every decision you’ve made, especially those where you chose the more challenging path. I am genuinely thrilled that you are in the place you are today. I have ordered your book and eagerly look forward to reading it.”
I cannot even count how many people have approached me stating how much they enjoyed listening to Jason, there were tears in the crowd, laughter, and very eager engaged audience members.
WOW! The next time I begin to start a complaint, I pray that I stop and begin to make coffee instead.”
“As an organization facing institutional change and disruption, Jason’s message of hope and perseverance was clear, transparent, and absolutely timely.
Jason delivered one of the most moving and impactful presentations I have ever witnessed, his message was precisely what were looking for!
I would recommend Jason Schechterle as a keynote speaker to any organization facing change in the near future. Jason held the attention of our entire team for almost an hour, before taking numerous questions from the attendees, the room went silent as each teammate listened intently to this message.
Perhaps more important than being a well-rehearsed speaker, Jason he is a true gentleman and will be a friend of our team for years to come.”
“I was so moved by your presentation last week. Truly, you deliver a story to perfection—so moving and so inspirational. Everything you said was remarkable.”
“I loved our time together and our conversation has had such an impact on my life.
For example, yesterday my husband and I spent the day in Flagstaff. We went for a hike, and it started raining… and then pouring. We got so completely soaked (head to toe), and as it was happening, I found myself reflecting on your words regarding acceptance when you were in the hospital. I consciously decided to accept the situation: we were about an hour away from the car, had no umbrella, and the rain was coming down heavily. I knew that I’d be soaked, so I realized that I might as well enjoy it.
From that moment, it was pure joy and pure FREEDOM. I jumped in puddles and didn’t care. I felt like a little kid again.”
I understand that it was an incredibly busy time for you, so I want to extend even more heartfelt thanks for making the trip. You are a truly special individual, and my prayer for you is that you continue to share your story with others, allowing them to witness how one can emerge from genuine adversity with a smile on their face. My goodness, anyone who thinks they’ve had a tough day, week, or month should have the privilege of meeting someone like you! You made me both laugh and cry.
Bless you for your openness and for sharing your entire story!”
Today, I had the privilege of shaking your hand and briefly meeting you, and your story touched me in so many profound ways. I am left in awe of how your incredibly challenging experience has redefined my understanding of both pain and inspiration.
I want you to know that today, you touched my soul in a way that I had never before experienced. YOU inspire me!”
“It was an honor and a privilege to have you speak to our group. Your inspirational story served as an incredible reminder of why we are dedicated to serving our community with compassion and diligence.
Your presence had a profound impact on the hearts of all our staff, and we are deeply thankful that you joined us.”
“Our decision to invite Jason to our event was the best choice we could have made.
Jason instantly connected with the audience of firefighters and police officers. He possesses a remarkable ability to share his profoundly tragic story in a manner that inspires others to overcome their challenges and adopt a positive outlook.
I wholeheartedly recommend Jason for any organization seeking to emphasize the significance of a positive attitude and how our actions can impact people we may not even know.”
From the moment he stepped on stage, he was engaging, engrossing, and very entertaining. He has a gift for public speaking and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any group who is looking for a keynote or motivational speaker.
Not only was he extremely professional, but he was a pleasure to work with during the planning process.”
“I had the privilege of attending the LexisNexis conference where I had the pleasure of hearing you speak about your incredible journey.
You possess a truly unique ability to prompt your audience to reflect inwardly and take stock of their own situations. You are an extraordinary human being, and I simply wanted to express my gratitude for everything you do for other first responders by sharing your profound personal journey.”
“I saw you on a TV show, The First 48. I have diabetes and systemic lupus medically. I’m retired from the Navy due to nerve damage from an active-duty spine injury and spinal surgery. I’ve been trying to stay active and functional, but it’s been tough. When I read your story, I told myself that if you can go through what you did and still work, then I can push through the pain.
Thanks to you, I accomplished more this week than I have in the past two months. You are my inspiration to keep moving forward. Thank you.”
