Joe Jamros began competing with Special Olympics in 2005. While he is on the basketball team and enjoyed playing with his team in Seattle, his favorite sport is soccer. Joe also plays bocce, volleyball, and bowling. Special Olympics has helped Joe become more social and given him the chance to have new experiences. He is currently a student at the Assabet Valley Collaborative Evolution Program and works part time and volunteers at the libraries in Shrewsbury (his hometown), Worcester and Grafton, Massachusetts. He is a huge New England sports fan and has season tickets to the New England Revolution Soccer team. In 2016 and 2017 he had the honor of being a member of the New England Revolution Unified Team. No matter the sport, Joe gives 110% and feels comfortable with Special Olympics because no one is being judgmental and everyone wants you to improve and succeed.
