  35. Brian Canady says:

    My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family since hearing of your accident. I have seen too many spinal accidents in my life and wish you nothing but a fast and successful recovery. I was on the Sioux team when Robbie Bina broke his neck against Denver and my father broke C2 and was paralyzed when I was 11 Years Old. So I am very familiar with these types of injuries. My father and family spent 6 months at Craig hospital. They are the best at what they do, so you will be in good hands. Keep your head up as I know you will come out of this with flying colors. You have a great future ahead of you! Good luck to you!

  37. Jesse, so glad to see you are doing well. The DU community has been keeping you in our thoughts and prayers and keeping up on your miraculous recovery so far at every opportunity. You have handled everything in a way that should make everyone proud to be a Pioneer.
