Have you ever tasted two different flavors that explode in your mouth at the same time, like sweet and spicy? Well, “the Jam Man” (or “Mr. Jalapeno”), Nolan Stilwell, who visited our world-class Creation Museum with his parents last month, is an expert on mixing these two flavors.
Nolan is the inspiration and chief cook at the Sweet Heat Jam Company outside Houston, Texas. Their slogan is “the jam with an attitude.” Born with Down Syndrome, Nolan has run the successful Sweet Heat Jam brand since 2011. His team consists of four employees and six interns—all young adults with disabilities.
I encourage you to check out this NBC Nightly News spot, “Inspiring America,” that featured Nolan and aired earlier this year.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
