Watershed Jackson strives to educate the community regarding the daily obstacles athletes with traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries must overcome. Together we will establish an atmosphere of teamwork and respect to improve integrity, confidence, and an appreciation for individual challenges within the community.
Originally from Waterbury, VT and after graduating from the University of Vermont with a degree in mechanical engineering he headed out west to pursue the dream of being a professional free-skier. In 2006, Roy suffered a life-altering T-12 burst fracture at Mammoth Mountain going “too fast, too far” that left him paralyzed from the waist down and was the catalyst to the creation of high fives. Roy turned the financial and community support of his own recovery into a ‘pay-it-forward’ adventure with the creation of High Fives Non-Profit Foundation. In the past 10 years Roy has relearned how to walk, how to ski, how to surf, and how to inspire others.
Commonly known as Mocrazy, is a retired slopestyle and halfpipe skier. Jamie fell attempting a double flat in her second run of World Tour finals in Whistler, Canada. She under-rotated and landed in a pike position on the front of her skies, then launched on to the right side of her body and was knocked unconscious. Jamie was life-flighted to a Whistler clinic and eventually to Vancouver General Hospital where her family found that she suffered a traumatic brain injury. Along with her family including sister Jeanee, Jamie is a brain injury awareness advocate strengthening families after a life-changing accident.
