Board of Directors

Jason Kiernan

Founder

Jason was born in Phoenix, AZ and has been a resident back in the Valley since 1998 where he is a small business owner. 

In April 2021, Jason was involved in a major motorcycle accident in central Phoenix as a car turned left in front of him with no time to react. Upon waking the next morning in ICU, Jason realized major damage had been done to his left ankle and foot. After multiple discussions with the Trauma Surgeons, Jason’s leg was amputated just below his knee. Jason received his first prosthetic leg 8 weeks later and began the long road back to full health and recovery.

After six (not so short) months, Jason was back to living his life, which includes golfing, going to races, concerts, sporting events and dedicating his efforts to this wonderful cause. Jason credits the support of his family, friends, and rehabilitation professionals for helping him get through this.. Every day, Jason continues to get stronger and as close to 100% as possible. 

It was through this process that Jason decided to launch Limb of Dreams Foundation to help people who have experienced similar trauma and need financial assistance for equipment or rehabilitation expenses that insurance will not cover.
