In one of the most poignant moments of the 2002 winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, third generation Olympian Jim Shea Jr. celebrates his emotional gold medal victory in the Skelton final by holding a photo of his grandfather Jack, who was killed in a car accident 28 days before by a drunk driver, and who 70 years ago won two gold medals for speed skating in the 1932 Olympic Games. "I felt him here today and at the opening ceremonies," said Jim Jr. "He had some unfinished business before he went to heaven. Now he can go."
