Jese Schag of Newark who graduated from Serena High School represented the United States at the Rio Paralympic Games. Schag competed in the sport of sitting volleyball. Jese is a marine who had right leg amputated after a motorcycle accident.

On Thursday, Congressman Adam Kinzinger and the rest of the House of Representatives passed an amendment so that Olympic medalists will not be taxed on their “victory” bonus.
