Motivational speaker and burn survivor Jared Estes tells permanent party Airmen at the Sheppard Club how he overcame tragedy and took charge of his life during a visit to Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Oct. 7, 2020. Estes was in a car with Paige, his wife of six months, and a couple friends when they were struck by another car traveling at speeds of at least 120 mph on March 6, 2005. During his visit, Estes encouraged Airmen to use the resiliency weapons of grace, perspective, gratitude, letting go and teamwork to combat life’s challenges to rebel against the human instinct of self-pity.
