"I met Marine Sgt. John Peck, a quadruple amputee who has received a double arm transplant, at Walter Reed in 2017. Today, it was my honor to welcome John (HERO) to the Oval, with his wonderful wife Jessica. He also wrote a book that I highly recommend, Rebuilding Sergeant Peck."
Sgt. John Peck (ret.) served two tours as a Marine during the War on Terror. He became a quadruple amputee after being injured by an IED for the second time, and received a groundbreaking bilateral arm transplant in 2016. John is one of only two military members to have gone through this complex surgical procedure. As a result, he has become an advocate for organ donation and encourages every American to become an organ donor. He continues his philanthropy work and is pursuing his dreams of becoming a chef. In addition, he is becoming a motivational speaker focusing on inspiring corporations, non-profit organizations and others with his message of hope and overcoming obstacles with humor and resolve. He lives with his wife, Jessica, in Bethesda, Maryland.
