In this podcast, Sheila Preston Fitzgerald finds the courage to discuss the very recent passing of her beloved brother who became a quadriplegic in a diving accident at the young age of 19. Jake Preston was a gentle giant who suffered unimaginable obstacles, only to move past his own pain and develop a life that touched and healed others.
After more than three decades as a quadriplegic, Jake passed at the age of 49. Despite all the odds against him, Jake lived a very full life. He married the love of his life, completed his doctoral education, became a sought after professor, enjoyed hunting, and sharpened his heart and mind into his greatest tools. Jake’s life and legacy is one of gentleness and faith in a God who orchestrated everything!
