His mother named him Jeffrey, but his friends call him Griff. He is currently in a wheelchair, but not forever!
Jeff always dreamed of playing sports on the ‘big stage’! As a kid he envisioned playing college football as a receiver. He was one step closer to fulfilling his dream when a construction accident left him broken and paralyzed from the waist down. His life and dreams were shattered but not defeated. During those dark days he had a decision to make: he could stay down and quit or get back up and succeed. He chose the latter.
“Jeff is one of my best friends and heroes. Not because of what he went through but because of what went through him that created such resolve and determination.”
–Mike Schlappi – Four-time Paralympian gold medalist and motivational speaker
As an ordinary man living life from a wheelchair, Jeff has accomplished some extraordinary things. He played in the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, Greece, and is a silver medalist for the USA men’s wheelchair basketball team. Griff is a national champion who played for the Utah Wheelin’ Jazz and is a four-time All-Star MVP. He was the number one men’s wheelchair tennis player in the state of Utah, won the St. George Marathon, has two Guinness Book of World Records, and is the author of the award-winning book I’Mpossible: Desire. Dream. Do. He believes everyone has the power and potential to accomplish the impossible if they take the proper steps.
During his 16-year career, Griffin’s teaching style, humor, and personality have made him one of the most liked and sought-after teachers. He earned his master’s degree in education and curriculum and created a worldwide peer-to-peer leadership program for Third-World countries that was recognized at the United Nations in New York City. Griff considers publishing his book one of his greatest accomplishments since he got a D- in English and was told he would never be able to write a coherent sentence.
Griff started two successful businesses and created a nonprofit organization called the ‘Road to Recovery’, which impacts thousands of injured vets and physically disabled persons. He is passionate about progress, enjoys mentoring youth, distributing wheelchairs to those in need, and giving hope through his humanitarian efforts. Griff married his best friend Emily and together they have four beautiful children. He enjoys eating pizza, playing games, and exercising.
These successes, although impressive, do not define who Griff is. What really defines him is his ability to amplify your power and potential, as a Sherpa of sorts, by not only telling you how to turn the impossible into the possible, but by showing you – ONE STEP AT A TIME.
