EP 11 - JASON SCHECHTERLE

From Wounded Officer’s Initiative - “On March 26, 2001, Jason Schechterle, then a Rookie City of Phoenix Police Officer was stopped at a red light. The dispatcher calling out over his squad car, Jason in the line of duty began to respond to a possible nearby homicide. As Jason waited for the light to turn green, suddenly and unexpectedly, his Crown Victoria was struck from behind by a taxi cab driver whose car was exceeding 100 miles per hour. Jason’s car instantly burst into flames, and he sat strapped and trapped in his vehicle, burning alive in raging flames that exceeded over 1000 degrees. Crews worked feverishly to save his life, putting their own lives and risk, and after 8 long minutes, Jason was freed, only to discover that over 50 percent of his body had been engulfed in the flames. He had no skin, no face, and no resemblance of the man he use to look like.

After arriving at the hospital, Doctors worked for over 7 hours to save Jason’s life. No physician believed Jason would make it through the night. He was covered in 3rd and 4th degree burns throughout his face and torso to the point that his own wife and best friend found him unrecognizable. He survived the night, and lay in a coma for 2 ½ months… and the prognosis to live much less fully recover was grave. He was never expected to talk, walk, regain his sight and function as he once had.

52 surgeries later, Jason began his long and painful recovery. Ten years later, through a series of big and small miracles, Jason now travels the country serving as a motivational speaker, sharing his story of hope and optimism.” Jason has a book written about him by author Landon J. Napoleon called ‘Burning Shield: The Jason Schechterle Story’. I had a great time talking with Jason and hope that he gives some sort of an insight for at least one person to see that police officers put their lives on the line everyday to keep people of their communities safe.

Growing up, Jason had one dream - to serve as a Phoenix Police Officer. Inspired by his brother and the tragic loss of a local law enforcement hero, Jason worked persistently towards his dream. After serving four years in the Air Force, at the age 26, Jason achieved his goal to work on the streets of Phoenix as a rookie police officer. Then, only 14 months into what was supposed to be a life-long career, Jason's life took an unexpected, dramatic and, at the time, tragic turn.

On the night of March 26th, 2001, a taxi cab crashed into the rear of Jason's patrol car. Upon impact, Jason's car burst into flames, trapping him inside with temperatures reaching over 700 degrees.

Through a series of miraculous and fateful circumstances, Jason survived the crash and ensuing physical and emotional catastrophe. He suffered severe burns to over 40% of his body which drastically altered his appearance. He has undergone more than 50 surgeries just to have the ability to accomplish simple daily tasks we often take for granted. 

Jason's journey chronicles his fight for life, his triumph over tragedy and the inspiration that enables him to continue to overcome unimaginable adversity. His personal narrative exemplifies that the power of the human spirit can never be underestimated or extinguished. His story is also a testament of true love and the dedication Jason and his wife have in their commitment to honor their family and the vows of marriage in good times and bad.  

His story is one of life, rebirth and transformation. Jason represents the human experience at its very best - an ascent from despair to describing himself as the luckiest person alive!

139: Jason Schechterle:  Keynote Speaker and subject of the book, Burning Shield. Co-Host of Badge Boys on StarWorldWideNetworks.com, shares his personal and professional journey of going from being a dedicated 

Jason Schechterle 

Jason Schechterle takes us back to March 26th, 2001 when he was just 28-years-old, 14 months as a Phoenix police officer in his hometown during a 10-hour-shift. With about one hour and a half left in his shift, he decided to take an emergency call that was out of his range near downtown Phoenix. “When you are running what we call Code 3, lights and siren, if you have a red light, you still have to come to a complete stop to make sure that people are seeing you from the other directions. They are going to yield to your vehicle. And it only takes a second to clear an intersection and just as I was going to proceed, my patrol car was struck from behind by a taxi cab.”

On this episode of Finding Your Summit Podcast, we talk with Jason Schechterle, Keynote Speaker and subject of the book, Burning Shield. Co-Host of Badge Boys on StarWorldWideNetworks.com, Jason describes the aftermath of his car collision. “I was knocked unconscious so, you get to erase the fear. You get to erase the chaos. You get to erase any of those memories. And even more importantly, my car burst into flames. It traveled 270 feet through the intersection and miracle upon miracle, twist of fate. You can put a lot of labels on it. But I came to rest 50 feet from a fire truck.” 

What You Will Learn:

What was the first ‘aha! moment’ that Jason Schechterle had prior to his injury? The first happened exactly two years to the day of Jason's injury, when a Phoenix police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty, inspiring Jason Schechterle to be a police officer just like him. Jason also discusses the second event. “I think I have always been inclined to a call-of-service. I joined the air force out of high school, did my four years, really loved it. It gave me exactly what  I needed in life, a little structure, a little discipline. I was very proud to have served in the places that I did. When I came home at 22-years-old, I wanted to be a cop.” 

Jason shares exactly how blessed he feels to be alive after this ordeal, and the outcome of events that were involved in his survival. ”It took so many little pieces and little precious seconds and effort, different effort. One person couldn’t help me. It took a lot of people to get me, not only out of that car but, to what I am going to argue, is the best burn center in the United States. The Maricopa County Hospital,  on their trauma table in less than eight minutes.” 

Jason Schechterle talks about his initial burn injuries and the impact that he experienced in his body physically.  “I know with my injuries, from the neck up it was fourth degree, which like you said, down to the last layers of muscles and into the bone. My shoulders to my hands were third degree later. But probably in the initial stages they were severe second degree burns. Burns will keep on burning until a doctor gets all that dead bacteria tissue off of you, they will continue to get worse and deeper. That's probably why burn victims end up with severe scarring.”

Jason Schechterle discusses how his eyesight was affected by his burns. “I currently don’t have my full sight. They were able to get me back, I was 100% blind for about 9 months...they actually covered my corneas with skin grafts because my corneas were severely damaged by the heat and fire and then, through a lot of medical procedures, even using my own blood as eye drops because your body heals itself so well, I was able to regain a lot of my sight.”

Jason Schechterle talks about what his wife went through during his recovery, including giving up her career. “I don’t think I will ever fully understand or appreciate what she went through in those first couple of months while I was asleep. We had two kids at the time, a seven-year-old daughter and we had a son who turned three while I was in my coma. So she had her hands full and she had to make all the decisions.”

Becoming an Agent for Change 

How did Jason Schechterle make the mindset shift to be strong for himself and others? “I need to be accountable and when I recognized that, I understood that if all these choices got me here, then every choice I make starting now will take me where I need to go. Of course there were a lot of dark days. There was so much fear, so much pain, so much, ‘How are we going to get through this? How am I going to get through this?’ But the beautiful thing about positive momentum is once it gets going, it can be a powerful force if you just get out of the way and let it go.” 

The Fight Worth Having 

During this episode of Finding Your Summit Podcast, Jason Schechterle also talks about starting Burning Shield and transitioning from being a police officer to being a public speaker. “We aren’t all going to catch on fire. We aren’t all going to play in the NFL. We aren’t all going to have children with diseases. Life happens to all of us. But the one guarantee is it is non-stop; life is going to try to take you out mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally and the fight that is so worth having is how do you not let one of those get too far down?”
