Another case, although I do not recall the details exactly, is Michael Mossman. I believe he also ended up playing trombone for a while until his chops were in the condition to play the trumpet.
There is a great trumpet player in St. Louis named Jim Manley. He's a friend of mine from college. In the 70's Jim was a very mediocre player with poor tone and limited range. Jim made himself into a player.
