Stephen Panus

Stephen Panus will be my guest on The Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast on February 19th from 1-2PT

Meet Stephen.

Stephen has been a publicist, sports marketing executive, artist, attorney, and motivational speaker. He has a history of working with champions—from Super Bowl winners to Indy 500 legends. Yet, the only title that’s ever mattered to him is father. When his eldest son, Jake, was tragically killed in a car accident at the tender age of 16 in the summer of 2020, Stephen’s life imploded.

Seeking to both survive and move forward through his grief, he wrote Walk On to confront his daily agony. Through his writing, Stephen experienced a renewed faith in living and regained purpose. In Walk On, he shares his journey and guides readers through universal struggles. Stephen and his wife, Kellie, live in Connecticut with their son, Liam, and foster daughter, and two dogs.


Walk On.


In today’s world, grief and adversity are everywhere, causing many to suffer and lose hope. From the depths of darkness and greatest loss emerges an intimate, candid, and raw story of a father’s search for meaning following tragedy. Walk On is a resilience-centered guidebook for overcoming struggle while teaching that the path to a purposeful life filled with kindness, compassion, and service resides within all of us.

Drawing upon his wisdom and leadership experience, Stephen provides real-world applications of indispensable values and traits for becoming the best version of ourselves. We all suffer in some manner, but no matter what happens or how it happens, we all must Walk On.



In Closing.

Stephen speaks from the heart and will share how he continues to honor Jake, through his beautiful written words. He is a true inspiration.
