Jeff was beaten by the legendary IFBB Pro Victor Konovalov and even this competitive young bodybuilder admits that he takes some comfort in being beaten by the best. Last October, Jeff won the wheelchair division of Mr USA competition.
He benches 152 kilos. Jeff works out four days a week at Studio 22, where he so impressed the owner that he was invited continue his training as a guest.
He sticks to a 2000 calorie a day diet, and has begun training for wheelchair racing, his latest passion.
Jeffâ€™s story is both amazing and deeply moving. A dedicated lifter at high-school, he was also a talented all-round sportsman, martial arts expert, and gifted student. He applied for and was accepted into the United States Air Force Academy.

By his own admission, Jeffâ€™s fast and furious approach to life made him almost a danger to himself. One week before his graduation, Jeff swerved to avoid an oncoming car and slammed at speed into a tree. He had suffered a spinal cord injury at T10.
Fast, furious and f*&%#d.
Jeff is currently undergoing stem cell treatments in Russia, grueling trip he makes with his mum, and has recently noticed some tingling in his legs.
â€œI do know one thing and this is it. I WILL WALK AGAIN.â€
No doubt, Jeff. Weâ€™re cheering you on. And eating your dust, man.
