Former Marine Jesse Cottle and his wife Kelly
Jesse lost his legs in Afghanistan and an image of his wife carrying him on her back is now touching thousands of people. Jesse joined the Marine Corps in August 2003. He had a very dangerous job — to find and dismantle improvised explosive devices. It was on patrol in Afghanistan in 2009 when Jesse’s life changed forever.
“About 5 hours into that patrol, into that mission, I was struck by an anti-personnel IED,” Jesse said. “It was a pressure plate, I stepped on it and lost both legs right away.”
One of his fellow Marines was wearing a helmet camera, and the explosion that injured Jesse was caught on tape.
“I remember most everything,” he said “I was awake the whole time.”
Jesse says it was rough going at first, but support from friends and family helped him through it.
“It was tough and it is tough in general, but I just kind of always had the attitude that it’s really tough now but things will just be okay, and I had my family around me I had good friends and basically just my faith really helped me to carry me through and I was lucky to be able to go through the tough recovery, and then still live my life, and meet my beautiful wife.”
He met his future bride, Kelly, during his recovery. She was a swimmer for Boise State and the pair met during a swim meet in San Diego.
“I just remember being very intrigued by him,” Kelly said. “He was just very different and not just because of his legs, just who he was.”
They were married last year and now make their home in San Diego.
Recently, while in Idaho visiting Kelly’s family, they took family portraits.
“It was a normal photo shoot, we finally got together and Jessie had his legs on and everything,” said Kelly.
Photographer Sarah Ledford suggested a picture in the water.
"So we said ‘well, you can just pop off your legs and get on one of our backs and we’ll take you in' and so, 'cause that’s just how we get around sometimes, like at the beach,” said Kelly. “It’s just pretty normal, so he hopped back on my back and then Sarah’s like ‘oh, we’ll take some couples shots.’”
Ledford posted one of those shots on her Facebook page. She had no idea the image of Kelly carrying Jesse on her back would get the reaction it did.
“Overwhelming, I can’t even keep up with my page," said Ledford. "The picture just blew up, America just fell in love with Jesse and Kelly.”
The picture has received thousands of likes, and hundreds of shares and comments.
One comment reads: “God bless the both of you and thank you tremendously for your sacrifice for our freedom, you are a hero.”
Jesse says seeing the outpouring of support is very humbling.
“I’m glad that we can have that impact, but you don’t expect it,” he said.
“But it’s cool because we represent a lot of people, couples that are going through the same thing and so it’s just an honor to be able to represent that," said Kelly.
Now, Jesse and Kelly are an inspiration to thousands and a reminder of the sacrifices being made by our military everyday.
That video of the IED explosion was used in a documentary about Jesse, his injury and his recovery.
I LOVE THEM BOTH!

A black teenager is shopping for justice — claiming snooty Barneys staffers and New York City cops racially profiled him for credit card fraud after he bought a $349 belt.
Trayon Christian, 19, told the Daily News he filed a lawsuit after he was targeted by staffers at Barneys’ Madison Ave. flagship store and detained by police because they didn’t believe a young black man could possibly afford to buy such an expensive belt.
“It was a quick trip. I gave them my debit card, I signed my name,” he said.
According to his lawsuit, the clerk asked Christian to show his ID, which he did.
The clerk didn’t react as he signed for his purchase and left, he said.
But he got no more than a block from the store when two undercover NYPD detectives stopped him near E. 60th St., the lawsuit said.
“They said my card wasn’t real, it was fake. They said someone at Barneys called to report it,” said Christian.
The male detectives — whose names he never learned — asked to see ID and look in his bag, he said.
“I showed them my school ID and my driver’s license,” said Christian, who was 18 when the incident allegedly occurred.
“I kept thinking, ‘Why is this happening to me?’” he said.“The detectives were asking me, ‘How could you afford a belt like this? Where did you get this money from?’” he said.
He was handcuffed and taken to the 19th Precinct stationhouse, he said.
According to his lawsuit, he was detained in a holding cell for about two hours.
He was then released with his debit card, his belt and an apology from the police, Christian said.
This makes my blood boil
Smh I can’t deal
It’s 2013 & white people salty about a young black male being able to afford expensive things. So because Im black & 19, I can’t afford high priced shit? Really? Fucking disgusting.
