Brown's speech to his former classmates was simple but eloquent, about finding your passion and dedicating yourself to it.

“I think everyone should pursue a passion. It may not lead you to the Olympics but that doesn’t matter,” he said. “Pursuing your dream is what really matters. Take risks, explore opportunities and persevere.”

Also in this video: Jason tells Arsenio Hall about the unique way he learned he had made the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team.

Come back Friday for Highland Park High School students' Q&A with the figure skating star. Jason talks about hanging out with the Chicago Blackhawks in Sochi, and where he will keep his Olympic bronze medal.
