A 20 Year Old With Down Syndrome Opened His Own Business.

He’s also the youngest business owner in his town! Cool, inspiring, heart warming and just all sorts of awesome!!

There’s a 20-year-old named Blake Pyron, who lives in Sanger, Texas, just outside Dallas, and he has Down syndrome, but he hasn’t let it stop him. He worked at a barbecue joint while he was in high school, but it went out of business recently.  Then he couldn’t find another job, but he missed talking to customers, so he decided to open his OWN business


Meet Blake and check out his inspiring story HERE.

About AJ

Your afternoon host AJ has been in Seattle for over 5 years and SO much has happened in his life since moving here. He and his wife of 7 years Nicole, had their first baby (Max...he is now 2) and they bought their first home here. When AJ isn't on the air, at a sporting event supporting one of our local teams (ESPECIALLY the Sounders and Seahawks) or hosting an event for one of the organizations that he works with including Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March For Babies, Susan G Komen and Washington Trails Association, he is more than likely climbing a mountain! "I love everything this place has to offer, from world-class entertainment, to the incredible food to all of its natural beauty with so many amazing mountains and trails at our doorstep! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and am proud to call it home and do what I love to do with an incredible group of people."
