Success Stories

Jason Lesher

My name is Jason Lesher and I am a referee for WXW wrestling, living my dream of being a part of the pro-wrestling business. In the summer of 2000, Pops and Mom took me into their family through the Usos Foundation. Before I was a part of the program I would suffer through prolonged periods of depression which led to other problems and I never really had a direction in my life. Since joining the program my self-confidence has grown tremendously and everyone involved with the program have helped me find direction and focus in my life, instead of just going through the motions and not accomplishing anything with my life. I pretty much barely graduated high school, but since I have been a part of the program I have learned just how important a good solid education is and I am currently looking into options of furthering my education. I grew up in a single parent home. I know my mom did the best she possibly could trying to raise two sons. The program has shown me not just the importance of a male role model but also the importance of taking it upon myself to be that male role model when the need arises. Last but not least, Mom and Pops (through the program) have shown me the importance of giving. Not only is it good for the soul, but it is the best way to show your gradtitude to those who gave and helped you. If it were not for Mom, Pops, and the Usos program, I feel that I would currently be nothing more than a directionless mess and a burden to my family and my community. Your Son, Jason Lesher, WXW Referee
