My hero is someone who has been through so much. He lost his son Ian in a car accident. Most people would mourn the death and shun the outside world but Joel didn't. He has set up the Big E foundation and still is active in his other kids lives. Ian was a wonderful person and an amazing hockey player. His loss was one that shook everyone who had the privilege to be around him. Joel sets the example of how to handle the loss of a loved one and that is why he is my hero.
