About the Event

Distinguished national speaker, Phoenix Police Officer Jason Schechterle, is set to captivate the audience as the headliner for the 2024 Iowa First Responder Wellness Conference. On the fateful night of March 26, 2001, Jason's patrol car was violently struck by a taxi cab traveling at over 100mph, engulfing him in flames and changing his life forever.

Against all odds, Jason not only survived the catastrophic crash but also endured the physical and emotional aftermath. With over 40% of his body covered in severe burns, he underwent more than 50 surgeries to regain the ability to perform simple, everyday tasks. His remarkable journey is a testament to the indomitable human spirit, showcasing resilience, triumph over tragedy, and the enduring power of inspiration in the face of unimaginable adversity.

Jason's narrative unfolds as a compelling story of life, rebirth, and transformation, symbolizing the epitome of the human experience—from the depths of despair to proudly declaring himself the luckiest person alive.

Join us for this three-day conference, where Jason's impactful story will be complemented by other esteemed speakers covering exciting topics related to first responder wellness. Secure your tickets now for an event that promises inspiration, education, and a renewed perspective on the strength inherent in the human spirit!
