Jeremy Chatelain, Seminary Teacher who is Quadripalegic

A Deseret News story highlighting Jeremy and Sarah Chatelain and their two children. Jeremy was hired as a full-time seminary teacher and shortly thereafter was involved in a diving accident 13 years ago that crushed his fifth and sixth vertebrae and caused immediate paralysis. Since then, he has travelled a long road and now teaches seminary again in Odgen, Utah. From the article:

“Some people say, ‘Oh, I don’t know how you do it. We couldn’t do it if we were you,'" he said. "We are no different that anybody else. We get up every morning and put one wheel in front of the other."
