Brenden AdamsWorld’s Tallest Teenager
Brenden Adams (b. 1995) is an Ellensburg native. The Guinness Book of World Records lists him as the tallest teen-age boy in the world. His father, Willie Adams, and mother, Debbie Ezell, first observed his extreme height condition when he was two months old. Doctors said his condition was caused by a disorder with the 12th chromosome. In 2008 there was a successful attempt to halt his growth when he reached 7-feet, 4.5-inches. At birth he measured 19.5 inches and weighed in at seven pounds, three ounces. See a video called “Being Brenden”. (KXLY video – click on photo or text link to view it.)
