Silverstein and Pekarek

Post by toonc » Fri, 04 May 2001 09:57:38


I've been way out of the loop here in terms of reading posts these past few
months, so if this information was shared already, please ignore.

Did anyone see the article in the March-April issue of Blades on Ice (page 76)
that talked about Jamie and Justin?

It states that Justin is working as dance director for the Onyx in Rochester,
MI and is pursuing a career in automotive engineering (no doubt to further the
careers of those other athletes, the race car drivers :-)). He recently had
corrective surgery on his jaw. He has not ruled out a return to the sport
should the "right opportunity" come along.

It states that Jamie is "actively looking for a partner".

Darn, they were my favorite dance pair,

The Onyx is a new rink where I think Todd E. trains and maybe Richard Callaghan
is based?  Only been open maybe 2 yrs.

I was a huge huge fan of these two as well...they were such a pleasure to
watch! They took my breath away sometimes!

Would love to see them get back together, or at least skate with others...
at some point...

Was Justin injured while they were skating or something? I never did know
why they broke up the team, and this is the first I've heard about surgery.

The direct quote from the article is:  "during the week of nationals He went to
the hospital for corrective surgery on his jaw, which was expected to have a
two- week recovery period"
No other details. I read this to mean that he didn't attend nationals this
year, even as a spectator. I have no idea what was wrong with his jaw. Maybe an
old injury?

I think she means: what Justin had jaw  surgery for.

It's a good reminder, though, to put in quotes to give context to one's
message; many folks here don't read by thread, and don't have access to already
deleted messages.

I have this... it's when your jaw is out of alignment and you can crack it
(like cracking your knuckles).  It has various shades of seriousness, from
"stay away from gum" to surgery required.  It's a pretty painful surgery, too -
sometimes they have to break your jaw to reset it properly.
