Unified Basketball | With SOAZ Since Middle School
Self-Proclaimed Car Fanatic
Jeffery has been involved with Special Olympics since middle school where his eyes were opened to the fact that people with a disability can play sports, get a job and live on their own. Since then, he has graduated high school and continues to have fun playing sports and supporting everyone through Special Olympics. He says, "sports is not always about winning, I just love to play." He is quick to tell people that Special Olympics staff members have influenced his life, encouraging him in what he dreams of doing. He loves cars, especially being able to go to old car shows and check out the wheels. He aspires to rebuild an old car someday. In regards to attending the 2019 World Games, he says, "it feels amazing! It means so much that I was chosen! I will get the opportunity to go to another country and meet people from different countries. I will tell them about my home in the US and learn how their country supports people with disabilities." He is also looking forward to celebrating his birthday on March 8th, around the beginning of the event, noting, "This will be the best birthday EVER!"
