Jack Rushton, a respected religious leader and educator, has been loved and admired by many over the years. He is known, not only for his leadership skills and devotion to his beliefs and family, but also for his amiable personality and sense of humor. Jack is now known by thousands for his stellar example of how to move on and continue to achieve fulfillment through service and inspiration despite unfortunate injuries.
On August 1, 1989, while enjoying an afternoon with his family in Laguna Beach, CA, Jack body-surfed a small, seemingly harmless wave towards the shore. Unexpectedly, the wave drove him into the sand head first. Since that day, he has been paralyzed from the neck down and respirator dependent.
From that day to this, Jack Rushton is even more influential and inspirational than before. His cheerful attitude, amidst such a trial, has helped others reach beyond themselves and become great as well in the process.
A group of church members pitched in time, talent and resources to build a beautiful addition to Jack's home to meet his special needs. And then, there is his wife, Jo Anne, who serves him day and night - washing, dressing, feeding him, and attending to all of his highly specialized needs. Even though Jack is dependent on those around him for much of his physical needs, he still retains the sharp mind and loving spirit that has carried him through his life. All that is Jack remains unchanged.
Jack Rushton's resilient attitude, combined with service and zest for living, has proven to edify everyone around him. He inspires others to readjust their attitude about their present situation, whatever it might be.
Jack and his wife Jo Anne are the parents of six children and 17 grandchildren. They reside in Southern California and in spite of their challenges, truly believe "It's Good to Be Alive!".
