Born with almost no vision J.R. is the definition of legally blind. J.R. only sees about 4 to 5 feet in front of him, yet he still lives an active life with his four kids who always push him to the limits always making him live a fun and wonderful life. Whether it’s through his stand-up comedy, his podcast The J.R. Bjornson show or by sharing helpful tips through his YouTube channel. Nothing ever stops him from telling his story about what it is like being legally blind. The best part about being blind is you have to be yourself, you have to put yourself out there for all to see. When J.R is not performing stand-up or at a speaking engagement. You can find him chasing news stories in his hometown of Red Deer, AB as a contributing reporter and tech reviewer for Accessible Media INC. (AMI) a non for profit media company aimed at serving Canadians who are visually impaired.
