LOS ANGELES, CA (KSTP) Jack Jablonski isn’t letting a life-altering spinal cord injury get in the way of achieving his dreams.
A MAN who became a quadriplegic after a motorbike accident is working as a teacher aide at Yarwun Primary School, and is one of the best, according to staff.
Dan Horton took a break from studying yesterday to reflect on the accident that 10 years ago put him in a wheelchair.

Helped by the Physically Challenged Athletes Scholarship Fund, Jennifer Bou Lahoud targets a career in neuroscience
Jennifer Bou Lahoud walks confidently, with purpose, in front of her USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences classmates with her diploma in hand. In her mind’s eye, at least, she walks as she used to, before the accident — the way she dreams she’ll someday walk again.
In 2008, the 16-year-old from West Covina, Calif., went on a ski trip with family and friends that took a tragic turn. Bou Lahoud skidded off her sled and slammed into a bed of rocks and packed snow.
“The moment I landed, I felt paralyzed,” she said. Everything she knew was about to change.
Eric LeGrand has never really been one of those people to just concentrate on his school work and go home. Even if school, after he suffered a severe spinal injury on the football field in 2010, is a bit more difficult for him than others.
Instead, LeGrand, who is set to graduate with a degree in business administration and labor relations from Rutgers in May, it’s just one of those things that he fits into a packed day that includes an intense rehab schedule, his broadcasting career, motivational speaking career and raising money to help victims of spinal cord injuries.
