Jacob Wassermann was born and raised in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. As long as he could remember he loved sports and the competition that came with them. Growing up in a hockey community like Humboldt’s, it was only natural that hockey became his passion. In 2018, as a 17-year-old, he played for
the Humboldt Broncos of the SJHL. He became the starting goalie, which was one of the biggest achievements of his young career in hockey.
That year while travelling to a playoff game, the bus carrying the team collided with a semi. In the collision, Jacob sustained many injuries, most significant was a spinal cord injury at the T9-T10 vertebrae. This left him a paraplegic.
That may have ended his hockey career, but life definitely didn’t slow down. He is currently studying at the University of Saskatchewan, along with travelling around the province sharing the story of his journey with mental health.
