Biography of Jeff Steinberg

 

Jeff Steinberg

For most of us it's a world of small inconveniences. Traffic jams. Sore throats. Burnt toast. For JEFF STEINBERG, It's a world of major handicaps always. But does he see himself as handicapped, unfortunate, to be pitied? No, absolutely not!

 

He calls himself a MASTERPIECE IN PROGRESS! Yet to see him, he looks like anything BUT a masterpiece. Born August 18, 1951, Jeff Steinberg faced life with little hope - no arms and badly deformed legs.

 

Jeff spent most of his early life in hospitals, including Shriners' Hospital for Crippled Children in Philadelphia, PA, where he underwent orthopedic surgery, learned to walk with a brace and was fitted with his first prosthetic arm. At age nine, Jeff was placed into The Good Shepherd Home for the Physically Handicapped in Allentown, PA, where he lived until he was 19.
