"I gotta focus on what I can do and not what I can't" -- Jesse Billauer comes to AACC


Just pray to the fragility of life and you’ll be on to something, advises Jesse Billauer, a quadriplegic surfer who came to inspire Anne Arundel Community College students on Disability Awareness Day.

Billeaur described the surfing accident that broke his neck in 1996, recalling that he said “Today’s gonna be a great day.”
He told students that he could have let his accident devour him, but instead he kept going.
Despite his disability, he told students “I am living my dream.”
