...
Mounsey was a long way from holding the executive director post at the Northern Colorado Chapter of the American Red Cross.
"I was just this train wreck of emotion looking for something to crash into," said Mounsey, 39.
Prison was a "big time-out" to "find myself again," he said. Mounsey was released after serving three years and two months, he said. A short time later, he began volunteering for the American Red Cross, which assisted him and his family after the explosion.
...
Mounsey successfully completed parole and pursued opportunities with the Red Cross in Denver. He moved through the ranks to directing and reorganizing the transportation program before he was selected among about 40 prospects for the Fort Collins-based executive director position in 2007.
...
We saw a lot of potential in Erin."
Energy, pain
Five years later, Mounsey is well respected in the community. He's gotten married and he has been able to help many people.
...
Lacquer-thinner fumes caught a spark and the explosion was "like being inside a gas oven when it turns on," Mounsey said.
He escaped through a window before paramedics arrived, but the flash-fire had already delivered severe burns to his flesh. He was given a less-than 10 percent chance of survival.
When he saw his face looked "like Freddie Krueger looking back at me in the mirror," he wanted to die.
...
Mounsey pressed on, then he developed problems with substance abuse.
The residence he would burglarize around New Year's Day 2001 belonged to Nagler, who was granted a restraining order against him after he threatened her. She left him after the explosion, which left her with less-debilitating injuries.
...
Mounsey said he admits what he did was wrong, but he was simply there to recover his belongings.
While in prison, he said people were pessimistic, telling him it would be impossible to make it through five years of parole. Guards didn't treat him any differently than anyone else despite his disabilities.
...
The fire left Mounsey missing fingertips and an index finger. It took him two years to use buttons again, and it was 2½ years before he could tie his own shoes.
But he said it helped his recovery to be treated like anyone else.
"I had a big change of perspective," he said.
Opportunity
Today, Mounsey is able to ride a snowboard and a bicycle. His finger can't accommodate a wedding ring. Instead, he wears a metal bracelet.
He keeps busy with work.
"He is not only energetic, but he tries to stay involved as much as possible to see through successes for not only the agency, but all the clients they serve," Love said. "I know that he is somebody who puts all of his heart and soul into making the local chapter successful."
But Mounsey's pain comes back every night. Staples buried in his arms sometimes reach bone; a previous bacterial infection in his right shin delivers electric pain, and pulsating pains in either leg are a regular occurrence.
Asked what keeps him going, Mounsey said, "Desperation."
The office he runs has three paid staff with more than 300 volunteers, and a core of about 15 to 20 regular volunteers. He has helped coordinate re-sources for such incidents as the recovery from a tornado incident in 2008 that affected Windsor residents.
...
"I like to think I'm an example of what can happen when people are given an opportunity," Mounsey said.
