For­mer USC foot­ball play­er Jake Olson, who is blind, mourns the loss of his loy­al guide dog, Que­bec. In a heart­felt Insta­gram post, Olson paid trib­ute to their incred­i­ble 13-year jour­ney together.

Olson, who lost his sight to can­cer, described Que­bec as his “best friend” and con­stant com­pan­ion. Que­bec became Olson’s eyes, nav­i­gat­ing him through high school, col­lege, and even a mem­o­rable encounter with a U.S. president. 

Their bond was fur­ther strength­ened by the fact that Que­bec was born on the very day Olson lost his vision. Olson saw this as a divine sign, believ­ing Que­bec was “made for him.”

Their sto­ry gar­nered nation­al atten­tion, with ESPN fea­tur­ing Olson’s inspir­ing jour­ney and the irre­place­able role Que­bec played in his life. Olson even found­ed a char­i­ty, Out of Sight Faith, to equip blind stu­dents with assis­tive technology.

Que­bec’s pass­ing leaves a void in Olson’s life. He feels as if a part of him is gone. How­ev­er, Olson finds solace in the count­less mem­o­ries they shared and the pro­found impact Que­bec had on his life. Que­bec’s spir­it and the unwa­ver­ing loy­al­ty he dis­played will for­ev­er be cherished.
