Jesse Billauer was surfing at Zuma Beach in Californis in 1996 and was pushed headfirst into a shallow sandbar, leaving him a quadriplegic. Jesse left the hospital knowing two things: he had to surf again; and he had to help others be inspired to follow their passions. As founder and ambassador of the Life Rolls On Foundation, Jesse brings people together and changes lives one day, one program, and one person at a time.
Jesse Billauer is a professional surfer and Nike athlete. Featured in the surf epic, Step Into Liquid, Jesse's life has also been made into a feature film, Jesse's Story.
