Jesse Horn came into the world a perfectly sweet baby boy, but when he was two years old, things started to change. He wouldn't make eye contact, he wouldn't speak, and his temperament became unpredictable. After seeking a diagnosis, the family's fears were confirmed: Jesse had autism. After two years of Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy, life started changing once again. At the age of nine, a chance encounter with a unique sport would help Jesse discover a passion that would skyrocket his personal growth and allow him to embrace a newfound sense of self-confidence. Joining us to discuss his story, his passion for Sport Stacking, and his new book is Jesse Horn himself!
