Jaimen Hudson

Left a quadriplegic by an accident at the age of 17, Jaimen Hudson never said die. Instead, he found a way to soar – and the world took notice.

Hudson is chirpy, curious and 25 years old. He’s lived in Esperance, on the southern coast of Western Australia, all his life, but has a north Queenslander’s habit of tagging his sentences with “eh”. He runs the diving and fishing business that his parents launched before he was born. He is an active member of the local tourism association. He is a quadriplegic, and he can fly. In the spring of 2015, Jaimen Hudson sat in his wheelchair on a walkway overlooking Fourth Beach, about seven kilometres south of Esperance, and sent up a drone.
