About Brother Stephenson:

JFKBrother Sean Stephenson (DePaul University, ‘01) is our inaugural recipient of the John F. Kennedy Award. Sean was born, doctors predicted he would not survive more than 24 hours because of a rare bone disorder, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile. Despite the challenges he faced, he’s taken a stand for a quality of life that has reached millions of people around the world including Sir Richard Branson, President Clinton, and his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Sean has appeared on everything from The Oprah Show to Online videos with hundreds of millions of views. The Biography Channel did an hour feature on his life called Three Foot Giant.

His message has been heard at live events in over 16 countries and 48 states in the past 23 years. Sean’s latest book, Get Off Your But, has swept the US and been released in almost a dozen languages around the world.

As a board certified therapist, Sean uses humor and compassion to develop a fun environment where individuals open their hearts and minds for lasting empowerment to occur.

Brother Stephenson has spoken at numerous Phi Kappa Theta events in the past and we are honored to present him with this award!
