Yale: Jesse Reising Bounces Back
10-04-2011 11:00 PM
For Jesse Reising ’11, one tackle changed everything. After his sophomore year, the linebacker completed the first half of the Marine Corps Officer Candidates' School. He was on track to become a second lieutenant following graduation in May. When he suffered torn nerves during The Game last fall, he lost more than the feeling in his arm—he lost his dream of defending his country as a Marine on the front lines of battle. In a remarkable show of determination and persistence, Reising has discovered his own ways to protect the American Dream.
