Jerry White is co-founder with Ken Rutherford of the Landmine Survivors Network (LSN). While hiking with friends from Hebrew University, Jerusalem in April 1984, he stepped on a land mine. He learnt to walk with a prosthesis following five operations at a Tel Aviv hospital. Before he began the LSN, White had been an activist campaigning against weapons of mass destruction and had been interviewed or published in newspapers and journals such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New Republic. He has been Assistant Director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, an editor for the award-winning publication Risk Report and in the late 1990s served on the Board of Directors of the Amputee Coalition of America. He has testified before the United Nations and the United States Senate. In addition to his degree from Hebrew University, White holds an MBA from the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan.
