Come and celebrate this inspiring determined young man who lost his leg to an accident at the age of 10 but never gave up on his love of ice hockey. Jack was introduced to sled hockey at Camp No Limits in Maine, a camp for children with physical disabilities. With the support of his family, parents John and Barbara, brothers Matt and Michael, and sister Colleen, Jack pursued his dream of playing hockey for his country. As a member of the United States National Sled Hockey Team, he appeared in one Para Sled Hockey World Championship (silver – 2017), two World Sled Hockey Challenges (first – 2016 and 2017) and helped Team USA win the 2018 Para Ice Hockey International Tournament in Turin, Italy and then win a Gold Medal at the 2018 Paralympics in PyeongChang South Korea.
We are so proud of Jack Wallace, a member of our Sunshine P&O Family!
