Jason Nesbitt  
Presenter Biography

Jason grew up in Perry County, Pennsylvania, with an amazing father who taught him life lessons and infused him with a love of hunting and the outdoors. He worked at Rogele for approximately seven years driving truck, working on sewer and waterlines, and finishing concrete and blacktop. When he was 38, Jason was the victim of a workplace accident that left him in a coma for 53 days and in the hospital for nine months. Today, he is an amputee above the knee and confined to a power wheelchair for the remainder of his life, with regular doctor and physical therapy appointments. While Jason’s life changed tremendously the day of his accident, he credits his wife, Mary’s, love and support, along with a wonderful group of friends, for the quality of life he enjoys today. He still enjoys hunting, dirt track racing, and vacations with Mary.
