jeThe Long Run

2014 Medical Miracle Honoree
Officer Jonathan Esquivel

Two years ago, San Antonio Police Officer Jonathan Esquivel was seriously considering running a marathon. When he wasn't on the streets protecting our community or at home with his wife and two young sons, chances are you could find him at the gym or out for a run. He was 28, and in the best shape of his life.

Unfortunately, his best was no match for a pick-up truck traveling 50 miles per hour. Officer Esquivel was struck by a distracted driver while working a collision on Loop 410. The impact broke his neck, shattered his pelvis, crushed his ankle, damaged his brain and ruptured his bladder.

Instead of a long run, the endurance marathon he started that day was a challenge to survive, to remember, and to move.

Watch the video below to hear the rest of Officer Esquivel's remarkable story!
