Jessica Cox


Jessica is recognized internationally as an inspirational keynote speaker. Born without arms, Jessica flies airplanes, drives cars, and otherwise lives a normal life using her feet as others use their hands. She is the first person without arms to earn a black belt in ATA Martial Arts and the Guinness World Record for being the first armless person in aviation history to earn a pilot's certificate. Convinced that the way we think has a more significant impact on our lives than our physical constraints, Jessica chose to pursue a degree in psychology at the University of Arizona. Since then, she has traveled to 26 countries on six continents, sharing her inspirational message.
