Jesse Hall was born with Stargardt Disease, a degenerative eye disorder. He is a skilled carpenter, gifted artist, accomplished blacksmith, and is working toward a degree in Electrical Mechanical Engineering. He constructed his first coal forge in his family’s fabrication shop and hand forged his own blacksmith tools. From that point on his creativity was unleashed. His work includes furniture, art, and home décor. Jesse says “because he is visually impaired, hand forging allows him to feel what he can’t see.” He has chosen to focus on his extraordinary ability, rather than his disability.
