Born and raised in the small town of LaFollette, Tennessee, Scott “Diesel” Smith has stared death in the face many times during his life. Surviving cancer at 13 years old and waking up on life support four times throughout his tumultuous career as a child abuse investigator and later as a raging alcoholic and drug addict have given Diesel a keen insight into the realms of good and evil. It was during a 10-year sentence at Brushy Mountain Penitentiary that he was rescued from his self-destructive behaviors and found redemption in Jesus Christ. Now, Diesel’s mission is to share his story with audiences large and small in churches or different facilities with the desire to lead others to the saving grace of the cross.
