Cool Dad Job: Paralympian, Explorer, Mountain Climber

Cool Dad Vibe: Unstoppable

Cool Dad Bona Fides: When Glasbrenner lost his right leg in a farming accident at age eight, doctors told him that he would never play sports again. Barely a decade later, he made the wheelchair basketball team at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He went on to become a Paralympian and two-time world champion in the sport. And that was before he got into mountain climbing — in 2016, Glasbrenner became the first American amputee to successfully climb Mount Everest, and he’s now training to climb the Seven Summits, the tallest peaks on each continent. Despite the risks he faces and his passion, Glasbrenner insists his main focus remains on his wife, Elizabeth, his daughter Grace, and his son Gavin.
