Blake Elliott ‘03
For Blake Elliott, disability services have been a deeply personal journey. It started back in his senior year at SJU when Blake's younger brother Adam suffered a traumatic brain injury. In 2010, Blake moved from having a brother that counted on disability services from other providers to providing the services himself to individuals with brain injury, mental health issues, intellectual and developmental disabilities and chemical dependency issues. Over the last 7 years’ companies he has founded now support over 300 people, employ 300 more and have over 50 locations in 9 different counties throughout Minnesota. Blake has had this success in large part to his different partnerships with fellow SJU alums.
