There have been so many "wow" moments through this whole ordeal. This is nothing short of a miracle.
Full audio of the entire press conference is on the DU website. http://www.denverpioneers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=18600&ATCLID=205032246
Full video is now on DU website
Jesse is a really awesome person to be connected to, however loosely. What an incredible person.
Very emotional moment today,I think he knows how many people are pulling for him,
Its great to see him walking around and determined. Its crazy to think how a miracle like a tiny piece of bone could prevent his spinal cord from being severed. Get well soon Jesse.
From now on I will always view a D.U. hockey game a little differently--with a bit of apprehension along with the cheering. This has been a real emotional trip.
There's a great moment in the Full Press Conference Video when Jesse's dad talks about Jesse opening a packet of pills. He fumbled opening the packet and the pill fell out. Jesse was able to catch the pill out of mid-air.
A Southern Mississippi football player was shot and paralyzed from the waist down over the weekend.Because the incident didn't happen at a official team practice or during a game, the NCAA $20 million insurance policy won't help this young player.One thing DU and other schools are going to have to take a hard look at is whether the NCAA Insurance Policy covers Captain's Practices.
Amazing!Awesome!We all knew it was bad, but to come so close to the worst...and then to see Jesse walk into the press conference.Amazing!Awesome!
Quite honestly, when you think about the physical size and emotional adrenaline of the guys, the speed they travel in an enclosed space, the hard ice under them with sharp blades on their feet and clubs in their hands, it's a miracle that more players aren't seriously hurt or even killed. Hockey players at this level of the game began playing at young ages, often without fear. Playing every day, the game takes on a second nature for these guys, as they master the control of small details that make them all experts.When you listen to elite hockey players talk, the details of movement and awareness take center stage. They often can describe every nuance of their body position relative to the puck and other players. In most cases, they are in total control. But several times in every game, they are not in control or they can't see what's coming. An in those instances, danger is waiting...We all know how close it was. Call it luck, fate or divine intervention - the fact that we saw him stride with authority, halo and all, into that press conference yesterday will stay with me forever.
This guy is amazing, what an incredible stroke of whatever you want to call it, luck, devine intervention or whatever. I have interviewed one other person with a similar injury, 20 years ago. She was in a car accident and she wasn't as lucky as Jesse was. She was permanently paralyzed from the neck down ... listening to Jesse speak, all I could think of for both of them was "what if." Amazing turn of events. -- chase
