Jamshid is an Iranian who came to study in 1970s America, and due to the revolution, never went home. As a guidance counselor in Seattle Public Schools, Jamshid’s best work takes place on the Ultimate playing field with “his kids,” the children of refugees and immigrants. Their parents are in the grips of their own struggles to make a living and a home in a strange land. Mr. Jamshid is the charismatic, fiery, funny human with a Frisbee in hand, who shows that love wins on the field, off the field, at home with family, or boldly forging a new community, in a new country — one kid, chicken, extreme mile and friend at a time.
