Thomas (Tom) Davis is a TeamUSA Paralympian Handcyclist in the MH4 category. He has won the Boston Marathon 2015 through 2019. He was scheduled to compete in the Boston Marathon in 2020 but it was cancelled due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. He competed in the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. Tom finished first at the 2021 Tokyo Paralympic Time Trials and is currently training to compete for TeamUSA at the Tokyo Paralympic Games.
In June 2006, while stationed in Ramadi, Iraq, the Humvee that Tom was riding in hit an improvised explosive device (IED). The Humvee was rocketed into in the air and landed on its top. Tom was trapped in the Humvee and pulled out by Jason Dickerson, an Army medic. Tom suffered massive blood loss, a concussion, traumatic brain injury, two broken forearms, right broken knee, broken nose, broken facial bones and a broken toe on his right foot. After numerous surgeries to repair his body to include a spinal fusion, the decision was made to amputate his left leg above the knee.
Tom met his wife Jamie (nee’ Brown) in November 2003. The couple became engaged in February 2004 and were married in July that same year. Their wedding was originally scheduled for May 2004 but it was delayed due to Tom being extended in Iraq with the U.S. Army.
The couple are parents to four children, Brenan, Elliana (Elli), Isaiah, and Lyllian (Lylli). The Davis family makes their home in Fremont, Indiana.
