Our speaker this week will be Jared Firestone, Esq.
Jared Firestone, Esq., grew up in Hollywood, Florida, and attended Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, where his school record in the 100 meter dash still holds today. Following his graduation from Tulane University, where he competed on the Track & Field team all four years, Jared attended the Cardozo School of Law in NYC. His athletic career had officially come to an end as he prepared for his future career as an attorney. Or so he thought. After a frightening health scare during his time in law school that left doctors questioning whether Jared could ever play sports again, Jared now finds himself on Israel’s National Skeleton Team, and spends his winters sliding head-first down mountains at speeds reaching 80 mph. He hopes to represent Israel at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
