Jamie Smith Nationally Renowned Powerlifter ILCH_jamie_special_olympics_opening_ceremonies_2007

We are extremely proud to announce that Jamie Smith, a graduate of Easter Seals' Autism Therapeutic School Chicago, employee through our Adult Vocational Program and Special Olympics athlete, brought home two bronze and two silver medals for powerlifting on Team USA!  Jamie traveled with the team to Shanghai, China in September, 2007 as the sole representative of the City of Chicago and one of nine athletes in the State of Illinois on Team USA.

Jamie has worked very hard to achieve his great skill level as a power lifter who can lift 100 pounds over his own body weight.  It is Jamie’s tremendous athletic ability as well as his vigorous training and work ethic that allows him to qualify for world games.

The entire Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago family is very proud to have Jamie represent our school, agency and city!  We are delighted in Jamie's success as he continues on his path toward independence.
