One of the most incredible guys you’ll ever meet, Jaco was blown up by an RPG whilst serving in Afghanistan. He lost his left arm at the elbow, had a collapsed left lung, extensive shrapnel wounds and severely punctured internal organs. Jaco had 11 operations and intense rehabilitation. Since, he’s completed marathons all over the world, went to the North Pole unsupported with HRH Prince Harry, won double gold at the Invictus Games and is on Team GB set to cycle at Rio 2016. The man’s a machine and a huge inspiration to all involved in IGO.
