Jarvise Shelton of the MV Richard A. Baker

A man of few words, Jarvise speaks with his actions. In 2012, he and a crewmate rescued five people in grave danger on the Mississippi River. His crewmate, Kyle, lost his life in the attempt, but both men received a distinguished award for heroism from the Coast Guard. The series of events has impacted Jarvise's life in many ways, including his future career plans.
