In 2008 Jon Michael was driving under the influence, which resulted in an accident where he lost his right leg below knee. While Jon Michael received a leg immediately following his accident, a welder and bridge builder by trade, he was unable to work and lost his insurance. In 2015 Jon Michael found himself clean and sober but still unable to consistently work due to the demands of his profession and the quality of his prosthesis. Steps of Faith was contacted and were able to outfit Jon Michael with a prosthetic that allowed him to sustain the difficult work of being on his feet for extended periods as a welder. Within a month he found an amazing job that includes full benefits for future needs associated with his prosthesis. In addition to returning to work he also just trained for a marathon and crossed the finish line.
