Jessop’s Journal: From homeless Utah boy to Olympic silver medalist

Jessop's Journal

Everyone has a story. Stories have power. They help us understand each other. In this entry into Jessop’s Journal I sat down with Olympic Silver Medalist, Bill Shuffenhauer. He has an inspiring story of coming from a rough childhood to the podium of the Olympics and now motivational speaker. I invite you to watch each episode of Jessop’s Journal at and share these stories with your friends and neighbors. Your feedback is always welcome.

Here are this week’s Internet Treasure Hunt questions:

* Bill was a silver medalist in the 2002 Winter Olympics in what event?

* Someone was holding a sign at the medal ceremony that got him emotional. Who was holding the sign and what did it say?

*How does Bill want to #leaveyourmark ?
