It didn’t take long for Jessie Buckingham to get his life back on track after suffering a serious leg injury in a construction accident in April 2014. Always a sport enthusiast, he made it a goal after his accident to be active and pursue a career in Paralympic sport. That same summer he was on the court trying sitting volleyball for the first time. He was named to the national team in March 2015.
