Relentlessly Resilient

Amputee Jonah Thomson on facing the hurt and getting back to what brings you joy

Jonah Thomson has always been an active, outdoorsy person, but after losing his lower leg in a motorcycle accident in June of 2020, he was determined to work with the hurt and get back to his favorite sport. Within five months of his amputation, he was back to skiing down the slopes and facing his challenges with humor, determination, and a little help from his friends. He joins this episode of Relentlessly Resilient to share the lessons he has learned about accepting limitations while discovering new ways to accomplish your goals. 

Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
