Ian Rosenberger Biography:

Ian Rosenberger grew up in a horse farm in Ambridge, Pennsylvania and is a graduate of Quigley Catholic High School, where he was an accomplished soccer player. Born on August 24, 1981, Rosenberger also spent his teen years working as a summer camp counselor and volunteering his services to the children’s organization, McGuire Home. After high school, he went on to major in agricultural extension and educational leadership at Pennsylvania State University, where he was once the Undergraduate Student Body President. Before he became a dolphin-assisted therapist for disabled children, Rosenberger took on a variety of jobs, which include outdoor adventure group dynamics facilitator, wedding disc jockey, street performer at a major amusement park and construction worker. One of his greatest accomplishments is helping raise $3 million for children suffering from cancer.

As a contestant on Survivor: Palau, Rosenberger was successful enough to make it to the Final Three, but after feeling guilty for having backstabbed and wronged his fellow Koror tribe member, Tom, he gave up a spot on the Final Two to other fellow tribe member, Katie . Consequently, Rosenberger was voted off at the 16th tribal council, leaving Tom and Katie to face the jury.
