Jason Gunn is a C4 Incomplete injury after suffering a spinal stroke in 2007 and further damage in January 2013. Jason worked as a secondary school teacher for 18 years as Assistant Head teacher until 2013 due to medical retirement.
Jason’s stroke in 2007, had a devastating impact on his life and family and through hard work, determination and problem solving he overcame a wide range of obstacles and in doing so returned to work, able to walk with support for 6 years. The second injury had more extensive damage which caused further complications and thus is now a fulltime wheelchair user.
Jason now volunteers as Peer Supporter at the NSIC, working with other SCI patients drawing upon lived experience and help others gain skills for lifelong independence.
