BraunAbility MXV Spotlight - Jesse Billauer

Jesse Billauer Life Rolls On

After Jesse Billauer was paralyzed during a surfing accident, he immediately wondered how he’d survive without the sport he loved. Just three years later, Billauer designed a board equipped with a bar to hold on to, allowing paralyzed individuals like him get back to surfing. He took his passion a step further, starting the Life Rolls On Foundation, an organization dedicated to introducing wheelchair users to skating and surfing. Now Jesse and his LRO volunteers are able to share their passion with nearly one thousand wheelchair athletes every year. BraunAbility is a proud sponsor of Life Rolls On, and we admire the “I Can. I Will” attitude that Jesse models to LRO athletes and the entire world.
