A Family Tradition

Founder and President of FIX’d Inc. Mr. Jaime A. Medina, is a third generation Tracyite and 1996 graduate of Merrill F. West High’s pioneer class. Following in the footsteps of family tradition; Jaime chose a life of military service. United States Airman, Technical Sergeant Medina served with distinction in one of the most dangerous career fields within our military for the last decade-plus.This distinction earned him 22 medals including two Bronze Star Medals, Multiple Army and Air Force Commendation awards with Valor, Air Force and Army Combat Badges accompanied by numerous decorations through 16 years of service.

First-Hand Experience

In the course of his service, Jaime developed a series of personal challenges with addictive substances and began a four-year daily regime of self-medication, denial, and destruction. All the while working as a Federal Police Officer in the civilian world.“My world just imploded,” he said, from these pressures, he inevitably put himself and others around him in danger. “I kept losing everything important to me, and tried to fill it with any and every drink or substance I could.” Ultimately, he surrendered and was forced to resign his job. His friends and family heartbroken from watching him deteriorate before their eyes tried their best to suggest he seek some sort of assistance.

You’re Not Alone

The Air Force, his unit, and Veterans Affairs came to his aide along with family and friends who wouldn’t give up on him, no matter how isolated he had become. Jaime checked himself into the V.A. Palo Alto’s Emergency room; where he spent the next 7 months attending a rigorous inpatient rehabilitation and Men’s Poly-Trauma Programs, graduating to an extensive outpatient therapy program lasting two years.“After completing the programs, I finally felt like I was home; it sounds weird saying it, but I’m home now and my last deployment was four years ago…Honestly this has been the best decision I have ever made, but I didn’t make it alone – I had a few people in my corner and If I didn’t owe it to myself, I surely owed them. I have a mission again, and it’s me. The clarity and quality of life I now have is amazing, but again – I didn’t do this alone. That’s what I want others in similar situations to know. You’re not alone. I believe there is always a way through any situation, especially when someone has your 6 [your back].”
