    Jason is a brave man, I have the utmost respect for him and what he has been through.

    Phoenix police Officer Jason Schechterle will return to work today, nearly 20 months after he suffered disfiguring burns in an on-duty car crash.

    Schechterle, 30, who is still undergoing rehabilitation, will work full time at a desk job in the public information office.

    Schechterle said he has been thinking about this day since he woke up from his coma in June 2001. He was burned in March 2001.

    "Nothing was going to take being a police officer away from me," Schechterle said. "This is one of the crowning achievements of my recovery, going back to work and doing something productive. Albeit a different road, it's still going to be a very worthwhile career for 20 years."

    Wow! That's really great to hear! I wish him well in everything he does.

      I remember reading about this on the internet months ago. He showed incredible courage, and I am glad he is doing so well. Lots of people would just sit around the house feeling sorry for themselves (and I am probably one of them). He was lucky to have the support of so many wonderful people.

        Hats off to him. Good Luck to him in all that he does. A real credit to law enforcement. [Wink]
