Moving story of St Clere’s student and his dream of becoming a fireman

JACK Smith is a St Clere’s student, currently studying hard in Year 10. Jack would like to share this moving video.

‘Fireman Jack’ is a short documentary based on the life of 14 year old Jack Smith, who has dreamt of becoming a fireman his whole life.

Jack Smith was born with a rare life threatening condition called tracheo-oesophageal fistula. He has endured a total of 46 life saving operations through out his life so far.

Jack appears physically well on the outside, however his condition is so severe, that he could stop breathing at any moment. Meaning he has to be around some one with resuscitation training at all times and has recently been told he can no longer participate in any sports.

When Jack was just six months old, a crew of local Fireman saved his life after his condition caused him to stop breathing. Since Jack found this out at a very young age, it has been his dream to become a Fireman himself.

This documentary will take you through an emotional and inspiring journey of Jack’s life and what a beautifully inspiring young man he is today.
