Alex does not let his disability limit his job choices

Alex Jackson uses a power chair due to a spinal cord injury, but he has never let this affect his daily outlook on life.

Alex currently works for the US Navy Corporate Communications and Public Affairs office, an employer he says “is very open to any requests for accommodations.”
