Jessica Cox Biography

Achieve the Impossible!

Jessica believes in a future where people passionately pursue their dreams with the resilience to overcome any challenge.

Described as a speaker “no one will ever forget," Jessica shows audiences around the globe how to inspire enthusiasm and empower diversity. With the goal to lift audiences to a new level of attention and excitement, she teaches how to tackle new challenges with commitment and resilience.

Born without arms, Jessica is fascinated by the way assumptions and perceived barriers prevent people from achieving their dreams. Jessica has utilized dormant physical traits to adapt and use her feet the way people use their hands. As she learned to conquer physical barriers, she developed mental skills that allowed her to go on to achieve the seemingly impossible in her unique way.

Jessica is best known for becoming the first armless pilot in aviation history. Her achievement earned her a Guinness World Record medal and has been a trending topic on Facebook and featured on tv programs like Ellen, Inside Edition, Fox and Friends, Oprah Winfrey Network, CNN, CBS Evening News, and the BBC.

Jessica's other accomplishments include becoming:

  • The first armless black belt and a state champion in ATA Martial Art
  • A certified scuba diver
  • A sought after YouTube and social media influencer
  • One of Plane and Pilot Magazine's "Top 10 Pilots"

Jessica is the author of the self-help/autobiographical book Disarm Your Limits.

Jessica's unconventional views on how to achieve impossible feats has earned her international invitations from companies such as Boeing, GE, Oerlikon, Nestle, State Farm, AT&T, NASA, US Air Force, Johnson & Johnson, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Smithsonian, AXA, and Mahindra. Jessica is also the subject of the award-winning documentary Right Footed that aired on National Geographic in more than 80 countries.

Jessica enjoys taking on new challenges, the latest of which is flying her airplane, a 1946 415C Ercoupe. She gives back to the global disability community as the Goodwill Ambassador for the Nobel Prize winning NGO Humanity and Inclusion. As a personal passion, she mentors children with limb differences and their parents through her nonprofit Rightfooted Foundation International.
