John Kriesel-Veterans Week Speaker

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2019, 12 - 1:30 PM

Location: Yellowjacket Union Great Room AB

Join us during Veterans Week to hear from motivational speaker John Kriesel. 

A sought after public speaker, John Kriesel travels throughout the country sharing his story, inspiring and motivating others. Kriesel’s intensely positive attitude infects every person he shares his story with from students to senior corporate executives as he relays lessons learned overcoming extreme tragedy.

In 2006 Kriesel was nearly blown to shreds by a 200 pound roadside bomb in the parched sands of Iraq, but battlefield angels in army uniforms kept him breathing long enough to reach a field hospital. He died three times and was shocked back to life. Somehow he survived through four hospitals, 35 surgeries and months of recovery. He lost both legs and suffered numerous other major injuries, but it was the loss of two close friends that hurt the most.

John’s story, sense of humor, and positive outlook on life will leave your audience inspired.
