Willits, CA – On Friday February 7, at 7:00 p.m., the Willits community will be inspired by International Speaker, Jessica Cox. Born without arms, Ms. Cox flies airplanes, drives cars and otherwise lives a normal life using her feet as others use their hands. Ms. Cox also holds the Guinness World Record for being the first armless person in aviation history to earn a pilot’s certificate as well as being the first armless black-belt in the American Taekwondo Association.

“I’m excited that Jessica is able to share her inspiring life with others in our community. Jessica is an inspiration on how to overcome challenges and to live life to its full potential,” shared Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital Chaplain, Dennis Long. Earning a degree in psychology from the University of Arizona, Cox travels the globe to more than 20 countries sharing her inspirational story and is convinced that the way we think has a greater impact on our lives than our physical constraints.
