Devon Harris

Devon Harris captained the Jamaican bobsled Olympic team in 1988 in Calgary, Canada and he is a 3 times Olympic champion. 

Devon was raised in the violent ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica, and at a young age decided on adopting a positive attitude and believed it would serve him more purpose than a sense of injustice and a heart filled with anger.

Devon was a graduate from the prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in England and received a Queen’s Commission in December 1985. He served as a Captain in the officer corps of the Jamaican Defence Force, where he retired in 1992.

Devon has learned the power of persistence and the obstacles that people face in order to live their best life. Devon’s mission remains the same no matter who he is interacting with- to bring the message of how everyone can keep on pushing and working for their dreams everyday of their professional and personal lives. 

The Jamaican bobsled team inspired the Disney blockbuster movie Cool Runnings. Devon founded the Keep On Pushing Foundation on 2006 which aims at supporting and enhancing the education of kids from disadvantaged communities by providing them with practical solutions to the challenges they face in getting an education. 

Devon has gone on to write books which highlight the obstacles in his life and is now an in demand motivational speaker
