Surfer Jared Muscat Joins Seize the Wave as Special Guest
Epilepsy Services of NJ and Paul’s Purple Warriors are happy to announce that Jared Muscat and his family will be our guest on Wednesday July 21st as we kick off our Seize the Wave event.
Jared Muscat was diagnosed with epilepsy on his way to college at 17. Upon the diagnosis, doctors discouraged Jared from surfing, to which he replied, “if you want me to be stress free, I can’t be salt free.” Jared took that motto to heart later in life when partnering with the Epilepsy Foundation on “Epileptic Opportunity;” a 17-mile paddle from his home to his office, livestreamed on Facebook for all to see. Shortly after that paddle he underwent a temporal lobotomy to remove the Focal Cortical Dysplasia from his front left temporal lobe.
Now 31, Jared’s three greatest loves are his son, his wife, and the ocean. When he’s not at his desk or in his garden you can find him out in the ocean on his own or with his two-year-old son onboard as well.
