Tony Jameson, an 18-year-old who was born and raised in Norwalk, is paralyzed after falling down a ladder during work.
The son of James and Angel Jameson has a spinal injury and cannot move his hands, fingers or legs, said Tony's grandmother, Barbara Jameson. She said doctors expect a "very, very slow" recovery process.
Jameson is a sophomore at Ohio State and performing house siding jobs. He and his family left Norwalk when he was in seventh grade and moved to Austintown.
