Jeff Eschenburg, CP
Jeff Eschenburg suffered severe injuries in a farming mishap at the age of 12, resulting in the amputation of his leg above the knee. Disenchanted with the function of his prosthesis, Jeff decided to focus his studies on Health Science in Preventive and Rehabilitative Programs. He entered the field of prosthetics as a technician in 1995 and attended Northwestern University to receive a clinical certificate in Prosthetics in 1998. Jeff spent 15 years working directly with surgeons in Michigan to improve amputation techniques and provide the best outcome for amputees. After his time in Michigan, he spent 5 years as Lead Prosthetist at POP in Las Vegas and now calls Chattanooga home. As a Fillauer product user, Jeff enjoys running 5k races and spending time outdoors with his family. He is passionate about encouraging amputees in the Chattanooga area to be more active!
