Jennifer Schuble has been a talented athlete throughout her life. She was a two-time state champion in soccer and a varsity track runner in high school. While attending the United States Military Academy at West Point to become a commissions officer, Schuble was a varsity athlete in three separate sports. One day during hand-to-hand combat class at West Point, Schuble sustained a traumatic brain injury. She sustained an additional TBI later in a car wreck, and in 2004, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Those challenges only fueled Schuble’s drive. After discovering Paralympic cycling, she had won her first world championship titles by 2007. Since then, Schuble has earned three additional world championship titles and five Paralympic medals from the 2008 and 2012 Games. 

Schuble holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in production operations research from the University of Alabama and currently works full-time at Mercedes-Benz. She is an avid triathlete and enjoys spending time with her two English bulldogs.
