Jason Roy, a Houston, Texas native, attended Sharpstown High School and is a graduate of Texas Southern University.
Jason excelled in athletics throughout his youth and into high school until a tragic car accident involving a drunk driver, left him clinging to life in 1994. He sustained multiple injuries in the accident and endured several months of physical therapy in hopes to regain the use of his legs.
After a year of homeschooling and outpatient treatment, Jason’s perseverance paid off and he returned to high school and athletics. In 2003, Jason completed his Bachelors of Science in Administration of Justice, which was the prelude to his pursuit of a career in law enforcement.
In 2006, Jason joined the Houston Police Department, where he would eventually be promoted to the Crime Reduction Unit of the Gang Division in 2008. He was a member of this elite force until his career came to an abrupt end after being involved in a near fatal, high speed chase while in the line of duty.
On May 3, 2011, Jason found himself fighting for his life once more after becoming trapped in the wreckage of his squad car. During what Jason thought could be his final moments, he prayed a salvation prayer, repented of his sins and asked God to save him. In that moment, he closed his eyes and saw his son Jadon. This vision gave him the strength to hold on and fight for his life, and by God’s magnificent grace, mercy and healing power, Jason survived.
In the days immediately following the accident, Jason underwent multiple surgeries and suffered a major stroke. Once in stable condition, he learned that he was paralyzed from the neck down. This news was devastating to Jason but he fought through the physical pain, depression and feelings of defeat and embarked upon his journey to spiritual and physical restoration.
Determined to hold his son in his arms again, Jason worked tirelessly toward regaining his mobility. As he reached major milestones throughout his road to recovery, it became clear to Jason that on the night of his accident, God re-ordered his steps. Upon receiving this revelation, he vowed to walk out of the hospital on his own and to never take another step in vain.
