Wesley Hamilton

ADA & DEI Consultant; Inclusive Training Specialist and Founder of Disabled But Not Really
Who is Wesley Hamilton? Wes was born and raised on the east side of Kansas City, MO, where it was difficult for a young African American male to find opportunity outside of the streets. At age 16, he had become too much for his mother to handle (a common lifestyle for kids in his neighborhood), and moved out on his own. At age 22, he became a father to his daughter, Nevaeh.

Two years later, at only 5-foot-4 and 230-pounds, Wes was non-athletic and vastly overweight. As a single father, working full-time, he had just won sole custody of his daughter. But only five days after his 24th birthday (January of 2012), everything changed dramatically. As he was walking back to his car, Wes was shot multiple times, with one bullet slicing through his chest and fracturing a rib. The other entered his abdomen, partially severing his spine, paralyzing him below the waist. He’d never met his shooter.
