State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) attended the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Annual Conference hosted in Columbus at the Ohio Statehouse. The conference has people with disabilities from across the state talk about how they ‘Can Do Like You.’

“I had a great time sharing my life experiences to others who might not think they can do fun things because of their disabilities,” said Jack Wolf. “ I hope I was able to motivate and inspire others during my talk at the statehouse.”

Jack Wolf, a student from Broadview Heights, presented at the conference about his life and experiences living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. After being diagnosed in 2005, he has dedicated his time to educating others and helping families deal with a diagnosis. He spoke of the many activities he is involved with including earning his Eagle Scout rank and playing the euphonium with his service dog, Tommy in the marching band. Jack was named the 2012 Muscular Dystrophy State Ambassador for Ohio and has since used his position to empower and educate Ohioans about muscular dystrophy.

“I am pleased to see promising young leaders, like Jack, take such active roles so early in their lives, which gives me great hope for our future generations,” said Rep Anielski. “Jack is more than just an advocate, he is above all else, a genuinely caring and positive individual.”
