Keynote Speaker: Two-Time Plane Crash Survivor, Former College Athlete & Inspirational Speaker

Austin Hatch Biography

Austin Hatch is a two-time plane crash survivor and inspirational speaker.

On Labor Day of 2003, Hatch and his family were flying home from their vacation home in northern Michigan. As they were preparing to land, the aircraft crashed and burst into flames. Hatch’s dad threw him out of the plane, saving his life and went back into the flames to get his mother, sister and brother, but tragically, was unable to. His mother, sister and brother did not survive.

Hatch and his father grieved their loss but became each other’s lifeline through the grief, pushing each other to overcome the loss, as he knew his mom, sister and brother would’ve wanted. A year later, Hatch’s dad met a lovely woman named Kimberley, who had three kids of her own. The couple was married about a year after meeting and together, they had a wonderful blended family. Meanwhile, Hatch worked hard on athletic skills and began to have success on the basketball court. Hatch’s dream was to play for Michigan. Then on June 15, 2011, Coach Beilein offered him a full scholarship to play basketball at The University of Michigan, which he accepted.

Nine days later, on June 24th, 2011, Hatch's father and “second mother” were flying to their vacation home to have a weekend of celebration. As they were preparing to land, the aircraft crashed and Hatch’s father and second mom were killed on impact. Hatch suffered severe injuries and nearly lost his life. After being in a coma for two months, he had to relearn how to walk, talk, eat and basically how to live his life, once he woke up. With the help of many, many people and against the odds, Hatch persevered and was able to make a solid comeback to take the place at university that was held open for him.

Nine years later, Hatch is a graduate of The University of Michigan and am a full time motivational speaker with a message about Thriving in the midst of adversity. He is married to an incredible woman named Abigail, who was also a former varsity athlete at The University of Michigan. Hatch considers himself blessed to be in a position to be impactful and speak to add value to a variety of organizations.

Hatch believes that part of the reason he survived two plane crashes, endured tragic losses and made a great recovery, is to help others. He has been sharing his story and message about grit and thriving in the midst of adversity to inspire others to overcome the adversity they face in the years since. We all face challenges every day, and Hatch believes that it is his purpose to help others find ways to thrive in the midst of them.

Austin Hatch Reviews

  • The process for booking a speaker was very easy. The pre-event phone call went very smooth. Deanna was also great to work with on the logistics for Austin, and her follow-up was also wonderful. I honestly don't know how anything could have been improved, and the entire process was so flawless. Will definitely use your company in the future!
    CFS Brands - Aug 02 2021

  • The whole experience was absolutely enjoyable and all parties were professional and prompt with their response time. Austin was absolutely extraordinary and we really hit this one out of the park bringing him in. The entire audience was impacted and took many things away from his time with us. Truly blessed to have met him and spend an evening with him! Would 100% recommend him to colleagues in this profession, and hope to work with him again in the future!
    York College of Pennsylvania - Jan 29 2020

  • You all were excellent! The process took a long time on our end because working with a college administration is never easy but you were patient and I really appreciate that. Austin was so inspiring and we had a great day! Thanks again!
