Jessie Billauer started the Life Rolls On Foundation in 1999 after he became quadriplegic in a surfing accident. It’s mission is to be a resource and advocate for young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injury. The foundation focuses on promoting an active lifestyle despite mobile impairment as shown in their flagship program, “They Will Surf Again.” This is a no-cost adaptive surfing program for individuals with a spinal cord injury.
