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 www.ABC4.com/Journal 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 ?
