JT, who inspires us each day with his strength, courage and faith has done it! He is graduating from UNF with a degree in Sports Management. This man has overcome immense obstacles. And, he has done it with style and class and always that mesmerizing smile.
In 2004 JT suffered a near fatal spinal cord injury in a hit on the football field at BK playing for EHS. His dreams of a college football and basketball career at FSU were stolen away from him in just a few seconds. But, he didn't let that get him down. He knew God had a different plan for him and he was obedient. He pushed forward and now, after 8 years of work much more difficult then any of us can imagine, he has found himself in this place.....on the platform, receiving his diploma, and as President of one of the First Coasts leading Non-Profits, The JT Townsend Foundation, Inc helping children and adults with disabilities. He is asked to speak inspirationally before groups and always agrees. JT truly set out to fulfill a dream. He took a life changing "situation" and turned it into an opportunity. And he gives all the glory to God!
