Stephen Jepson in the swim mask in 1950. Just beginning my swimming experiences that would continue for a lifetime. Little fellow on the left is Jack Holmes; a childhood friend and someone I am in contact these days. Friends for 65 years, that’s pretty amazing.
I recently wrote my first “press release”. I am looking for your suggestions as to where and how to post it to the world. Smile. It may not be worthy of such wide broadcasting – who knows? Please let me know where to post this so that the throngs will be cheering my takeoff on the shore of Spirit Like and the hordes will be standing waist deep in the water yelling their lungs out as I complete my swim. Smile again.
Flash–For Immediate Release–Flash
75-year-old Stephen Jepson is about to repeat a physical feat he did (accomplished) 59 years ago in 1957 when he was 16. In 57 young Jepson swam the largest natural lake in his home state of Iowa. In his mid-60s Stephen became completely paralyzed in the upper right quadrant of his torso. He could not use his right arm at all. It hung limp at his right side. After a cervical spine fusion the nerves regenerated; his neurosurgeon said his recovery was a miracle. He swam the lake again at 65, 70, and now Jepson is 75 and he is going to do it for the sixth time on Friday, July 29, 2016.
These days Stephen is a professional speaker traveling the world sharing his Never Leave The Playground concepts; helping people make a habit of a healthy lifestyle. His program helps people reverse the aging process. He says: “we all can experience becoming younger day by day”. He says that statistically people who do what I share and teach do not get dementia and Alzheimer’s. At 75 he is living proof of his life enriching message.
There are many YouTube videos of Jepson demonstrating what he does to thwart the aging process. You can learn a lot more about his practices by visiting hisneverleavetheplayground.com website.
He will come and share his life-changing ideas with your group or organization. He can be contacted through his website or by calling 407-349-5587.
Jepson has been called the most interesting person in the world. You can learn a lot more about this young-again man by googling his name and checking out his biography on Wikipedia.
