Speaker Bio
Inspired by his brother and the tragic loss of a local law enforcement hero, Jason worked persistently towards his dream.

After serving four years in the Air Force, at the age 26, Jason achieved his goal to work on the streets of Phoenix as a rookie police officer. Then, only 14 months into what was supposed to be a life-long career, Jason’s life took an unexpected tragic turn.

After the accident Jason had to undergo over 50 surgeries since the burns affected more than 40% of his body. Jason wrote a book about his recovery and his lawsuit against the Ford Motor Company called Burning Shield: The Jason Schechterle Story.
