But ... for those who were touched by Jason's letter to Kori:
For the sheer inspiration, you'll do yourself a favor to read the essay that Tomasevicz wrote about his fellow bobsledder/best friend Emily Azevedo. (I enjoyed Curt's tribute to her many days ago, long before knowing that Jason and he would become neck and neck in the voting.)
Wish all the nominees could win the award.

Jason wrote a beautiful letter to his coach Kori for her 40th birthday. He nominated her as his inspiration in the OCTanner Inspiration Awards.
Lovely to see Jason giving credits to his coach. Hope they can continue their professional relationship as long as possible.
So touching... I was just watching Voir's Umbrellas de Cherbourg and now this. I want to cry! And Kori looks far younger than 40. I'm happy the skating world has Jason and Kori in the many years to come. They're really something to look forward after so many veterans have retired after Sochi.
Wow, Jason's vote count is going in the way of his YouTube viral video views.
He's now at nearly 144.9k votes, well past Curt Tomasevicz's 140.1k votes. In fact, he's actually closing in on Eddy Alverez's 147k vote total and the second place spot.
She's 40?!? She looks good for her age. Does anyone else think she looks a lot like Kate Walsh, Grey's Anatomy/Private Practice, or is it just me?
Speaking of which you all should vote. Kori's closing in on second place!

Good observation - she DOES look a little like Kate Walsh. She's a very attractive woman.
I've been voting but it really takes a long time for that site to load. You get 100 votes per day!
