"Jason Romero is an amazing speaker. His story is not only personally moving but is full of great lessons for all management teams.

- Stewart Glendinning (CEO, Molson Coors International)
"Jason is an absolutely amazing speaker who inspires, energizes and motivates teams to give their best. He is authentic and truly real. I highly recommend him to be your next motivational speaker for your teams to help them achieve their goals and work together in a cohesive way. Thank you Jason for being you and your service to the world."

"Jason Romero has one of the most remarkable stories you will ever hear. Running across the United States in 60 consecutive days is only the starting point. Factor in visual impairment, a miniscule budget, and a one-person crew, and you would pretty much say this venture was doomed to fail. But if you know Jason at all, you would understand that failure was simply not an option. He has such an incredible huge heart, and he is passionate about making a positive impact on people and organizations. I absolutely recommend that you find a way to put this man and his story in front of your team."
- Dr. Michael Kragt, Ph.D. (Psychologist & Executive Director)
"Goodwill was honored to have Jason as the Keynote Speaker for our annual gala with nearly 800 community leaders in attendance. Jason used his story of struggle and triumph to inspire our audience. The crowd was captivated and engaged throughout Jason's time on stage...Jason is humble and kind and has the ability to connect with individuals facing barriers and teams battling challenges. I recommend Jason to speak to any organization."
- Stuart Davie (CEO, Goodwill Industries)
"Jason motivated me and the audience to reach deep within ourselves to 'go the extra mile' and to improve our lives and the lives of others."
- Mark Lucas (CEO, USABA)
"Jason is first and foremost, a man of high integrity and true compassion. He's smart, educated, accomplished and a great Father. He's a motivating role model for many. I recommend Jason for a lot of things - motivational speaking, mentor, counselor and business leader among them"
- Scott Burt (CEO, Integro)
