Meet the Owner – Jedidiah Morgan
Jed was born in Santa Barbara, CA in 1990. Shortly after his birth his parents, both missionaries, moved the family to Guatemala where Jed and his younger brother lived for 3 years.
The family returned to the U.S. where Jed attended high school and graduated in 2008. Jed enjoyed language and the arts and wanted to further his education. Unable to afford college, Jed looked at all the branches of military services, but his heart had always been with joining those with the best training, the hardest work, and the most compelling spirit –the USMC. In 2009, Jed made the decision to join the Marines.
After School of Infantry (for 0311, Combat Infantryman) Jed was assigned to 1/7 (First Battalion, Seventh Marines) at 29 Palms, CA. For his second deployment his unit deployed to Sangin, Afghanistan.
Jed was a SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) gunner. In 2012, while on a daily foot patrol in Afghanistan his unit stopped on a hilltop for a short rest. While settling into a defensive position, Jed brushed the pressure plate of an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), which exploded.
Jed recalled, “Suddenly, there was a flash of blinding light and I found myself on my back with several Marines already coming to my aid. My buddies were there even before the Corpsman got to me, putting tourniquets on as they rushed to stop the bleeding. While we waited at the LZ for the helicopter to arrive, my buddies gathered around me to make sure all sources of bleeding had stopped. They were, it seemed, more upset than I was. Several were weeping and were so distraught that I found that I was the one who had to help them settle down.”
Jed lost both legs and knees and the use of his right hand.
Jed has undergone numerous surgeries and exhaustive physical therapy. Getting fitted for prosthetics and learning how to use them, not just on level ground but for all aspects of daily life, has become his primary focus. He will be pursing his dream of furthering his education. Jed said “I look forward to my imagination helping me think about possibilities I had not considered before.” Jed is currently the coordinator for an Eco-Therapy program called the Guardian Project that gets veteran amputees out into the environment and back into living life again.
Jed started Sergius, LLC. to provide access to products and services to help better the lives of amputees. Jed is determined and committed to providing the best products and services to our amputee and amputee caregivers.
“As amputees ourselves, we understand the unique challenges that amputee and amputee caregivers face.” – Jed
Where Does Sergius Come From?
Marcus Sergius “Sir-guy-us” , was a Roman General during the Second Punic wars around 218-201 BC. During a battle his hand was cut off, but instead of quitting, he fashioned a prosthetic to hold his shield and continue fighting. We strive to bring the same determination and perseverance into the products we develop and the training we offer.
Sergius provides our Federal customers direct access to our products and services as a certified SDVOSB.
