In 1995, JumpSport's Co-Founders, Mark and Valerie Publicover, heard their children cry for help from the backyard. Mark ran outside to the trampoline where the kids were playing and found their friend's youngest daughter on the ground where she appeared to be seriously hurt. Prior to this accident, the Publicover children had also fallen off the trampoline several times prompting Mark to sketch out several ideas for a trampoline safety enclosure. "After our friend rushed off with her daughter, I walked back to my home office and broke down. I was so upset with myself for not having done something sooner. In times of trouble I knew where to turn so I prayed to know this child was in God's care and that I could find a way to prevent these accidents. Happily, our friend's daughter recovered quickly and I immediately began working to create an inexpensive trampoline enclosure so that all families could afford this vital protection." Today this landmark invention now protects millions of kids around the world and has prevented hundreds of thousands of needless trampoline injuries.
