Episode 149 Jamie MoCrazy World Class Freestyle Skier and Major Head Trauma Survivor
August 30, 2023 | Hosted By: Jason Quinn
In this episode of The Real ResQ, we are joined by Jamie MoCrazy, world class freestyle skier who competed in Junior World Championships, X Games, and FIS Freestyle World Ski Championship. Growing up doing gymnastics and snow skiing, Jamie wanted to bring these two sports together. So that is exactly what she did! She took women's freestyle skiing to the next level. Jamie was the first female skier to land a double backflip in a competition at the Winter X Games XVII in Aspen, Colorado. In 2015, on her second run of the competition, Jamie had a terrible accident. While attempting another double flip, she crashed and hit her head, creating major brain damage. Within minutes of her crash, the first responder ski patrol was at her side. From that point on, it was a race against time to save Jamie's life. From the ski patrol, to the helicopter crew, to the neurosurgeons, along with her family, everyone was a crucial piece of the puzzle in saving Jamie’s life. We, as rescuers, rarely get to hear what happens after we are called out to help someone in distress. Being able to sit down with Jamie, we get to hear all about how far she has come and what she has been doing since her accident. If you get a chance, go back and listen to Episode 144 with Brian Fishbook to hear his side of this incredible story. Enjoy!
