Jami Goldman

Jami Goldman an American athlete, author of the book "Up and running: The Jami Goldman story". Jamie also appears in a commercial made for Adidas, she might also be spotted in a movie called "A.I." by Steven Spielberg.

Goldman lost her legs to frostbite in a car accident in February, 1988, in northern Arizona. Like many people who lose a limb, Goldman refused to give up on herself. Self-pity is not in her character. She learned to use artificial legs, and while she was adjusting, she earned a BA in child development in 1996 from California State at Long Beach.

In April 2002 she married a longtime friend, Beau Marseilles, who became, in her words, "the love of my life." She now signs her name Jami Goldman-Marseilles.
