(The Orland Park Prairie) Boy Scout Jason Marquardt, of Mokena, was literally over his head with work Nov. 1, as he brought the joy and wonder of scuba diving to three individuals with disabilities at the 55,000-gallon, 89-degree pool at Scuba Emporium in Orland Park.

“Jason wanted to do something interesting, something that could change peoples’ lives, something other than [building and installing] a bench,” said his father, Ray, a former rescue diver and current firefighter, referring to common Eagle Scout projects chosen by many Scouts.
