Personal

Sergeant Jen Lee, who is currently on active duty with the United States Army, had his left leg amputated above the knee after injuring it in a motorcycle accident in 2009. He was introduced to sled hockey by “Operation Comfort,” an organization dedicated to assisting injured U.S. service personnel at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. Lee was a member of the San Antonio Rampage sled hockey club, which is made up entirely of military athletes, from 2009-13. He is now a member of the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program unit out of Fort Carson, Colo., and is stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Lee hopes to attend Stanford University to study athletic training. He is a lifelong athlete, having played varsity basketball, and he helped his Westmoor High School track and field team to two district titles in three seasons
