Jessica Cox (born 1983 in Arizona) is the world's first licensed armless pilot, as well as the first armless black-belt in the American Taekwondo Association. Cox is the subject of an upcoming documentary titled "Right Footed, A Documentary Film About Jessica Cox."

She was born without arms due to a rare birth defect. Can you think of a life without the ability to do even the most basic things like eat or hold a phone or drive? Nevertheless with amazing perseverance and faith, Jessica Cox has realized to do all of these things and instead more — along with her feet. Against all odds but with strong faith and the help of her family, she put herself through high school and then college, typing papers with her toes. Cox holds a Bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Arizona and works as a motivational speaker and has shared her message in 20 different countries.
