Wishing you an amazing week in therapy and in anything else you have planned. Hopefully things have been going better for you since the last update. You're doing so well and there's no doubt in many of our minds that you'll only continue to progress and get stronger. Prayers every night from Montréal. Stay strong, Jack!

Jack it is so great to see that you continue to push yourself every year. You are amazing and good luck with Journalism. I have a request, since it is the beginning of another hockey season and my son is entering Bantams. I was hoping there was a way to announce and remind all young players the dangers of checking from behind. Yes, the new rules have been implemented but, I still feel sometimes kids forget. I don't know if this could be delivered from coaches to the players, in USA hockey magazine, or printed on all high school hockey websites.If you can do anything all the mothers around the world would be grateful forever. You have had such an impact on hockey around the world. God Bless you and continue to reach your goals!!!

Wishing you a great week in therapy and in anything else you have planned for this week! Good luck with your planning for university; it'll go well and it is such a big step. It'll only help you. Keep up the great work in therapy; it may be discouraging at times but not all progress shows right away. Prayers every night from Montréal. Stay strong, Jack!

Leslie and Jack - I hope you read this, wish I had a personal email for one of you. We are a hockey family that lives in SoCal - about 25 minutes from USC. Our daughter is currently a Senior at Shattuck in Faribault, her name is Hannah England, she actually met Jack at a rink about a year ago. Anyway, just wanted to provide you with my email (, please feel free to reach out. It's great to have as many friends in a new area as possible, and we would love to help Jack (and you) make this transition a little bit easier. We have followed Jack's story and progress from the beginning, and are so proud to see him make his way out west to USC. Please email at anytime, would love to connect. Best - Jen England

Jack - keep battling. I've been reading the posts and keeping up with you that way. Your mom's comment about being in Cooperstown brought back a lot of memories. Remember that stand up sign I made you and the pitchers throw at to improve control?  I came across that silly thing during an intense garage cleaning.  It was all beat up but I just couldn't bring myself to throw it away.  Great memories - but many more coming down the line for you, Cam and all the 12AAAs from 2007 (could it be that long ago already-geez).  We may need to organize a reunion before all you guys scatter across the country.

Awesome to hear that so many things are falling in place for Jack as he transitions to LA and college life.  I know he will do wonderful things there!  Praying that all the rest of the details will fall into place and that the fund raisers will be more successful than ever!  You all are a great inspiration.  And I am thankful for your sensitive Mom's heart, that you remember the boy that was.  We never know what life will dish out at us, but we can choose how we respond to it all.  You have done so with grace and courage and remind us all how it SHOULD be done.  Keep up the good work!  Blessings- Lisa

Wishing you a great week in therapy and in anything else that you'll be doing. Hope things have been going well, even with the drop in temperature as that can be difficult. Keep up the hard work and the progress will continue coming. Prayers every night from Montréal! Stay strong, Jack!

Praise the Lord!  You bet that is big news!  Such perseverance has paid off and such wonderful news to share.  Never, never, ever, give up!  You have so much support and so much stamina and I just know you will do more and more as time goes on.  The world is your stepstool.  May God give you new strength with each new day.  In His love, Nancy

My name is Mike Williams and your family and mine are connected now as my 18 year old athletic son was injured in a tragic accident that rendered him an incomplete quadriplegic.  He/We are blessed with significant recovery as defined in the world of SCI, however he has a long way to go to be able bodied again.  There is no harm in hope and the power of prayer for a remedy to reverse the effects of SCI.  I truly believe that one day, we will live in a world that looks at SCI as an injury in the past.  In the meantime, celebrate the successes and stay positive through all aspects of this journey!  Best wishes for more recovery!

My son's caring bridge is simply Austin Williams.

I am just shaking my head in awe at what is happening. It is as if his brain is finding new pathways with which to send signals. Years of prayers coupled with Jack's amazing drive and energy-quite a package! Someday we will read-Jack Jablonski Takes First Steps-I want to be here for that. So happy for these moments of hope...

By Mike Williams Father of Austin Williams "Wiggle for Willie" — Aug 27, 2014 9:25pm

 To the Jablonski's:

My son's caring bridge site is simply Austin Williams and you can read about his journey from a tragic event that resulted in c4-c7 fusion from compression fractures of these vertebras and compression of his spinal cord.  Any movement is cause for celebration and is cause for additional hope.  My son is an incomplete quad and I hope that we all one day will relish in a breakthrough that reverses the effects of SCI.  Best wishes for further return and godspeed on the complete journey!

That is absolutely fabulous news. Praise God for these positive signs of continued healing, treat each as the glorious blessing it is.  Absolutely fabulous news!   I had a photograph I took many years ago, of fishermen in a boat, it reminded me of the bible story (of the storm, when Jesus came to his disciples, walking on the water, and so (with the help of photoshop) I created this PoetryArtCard.  I think I could include the line....ask Jack too, because for someone whose faith must have surely been tested, by reaching out your hand to Christ, I think you have figured out that He will never let you down.  Best news ever:  Keep reaching and He will always be easy to find!
