After 4 years of education and 10 years of being part of the family, I’m now proud to call USC my alma mater! I’m grateful for my family and friends, I’m grateful for the Trojan family, I’m grateful for SC football, I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn business in a top business school, and I’m grateful and proud of my best friend Quebec who now has a high school and college diploma with me! God is good! What a journey it has been and forever Fight On! #usc #fighton
Got to go to the best concert of my life last night! @iprevailband knows how to put on a show! Unmatched energy and talent! Also finally got to meet my boy @brian.burkheiser after the show and chill with him and the rest of the boys in their tour bus! A great group of guys who love to play music and fire people up through it! Very grateful for my new friend and for the chance to see him live! These boys have been on the up for the last few years and can’t wait to see where they’ll go! Keep rocking on! #trauma #traumatour
Had a great time sharing my #Headstrong story with the folks at @gmfb this morning. It’s been awesome inspiring and meeting people in Nashville #ad
I'm fortunate to have people in my life that have inspired me to never give up. Now it's time for me to give back, and share my story. I'm partnering with @HeadShouldersUSA throughout the #NFLDraft to help inspire others to be Headstrong as they chase their dreams. Stay tuned for some cool content from Nashville this week and stay #Headstrong!
We raised over $60,000 that will go directly to Dr. Gallie for continued retinoblastoma research that will lead to curing this disease. From my pro-day campaign that so many of you donated to, to @upliftingathletes and @givebox it was a team effort and I cannot thank you guys enough for supporting me and for helping me in raising this!! It means the world to me. Know you have directly impacted a child’s life who would have had to go blind, but will now be able to see! We had a great party thanks to @givebox to wrap up the fundraising and can’t thank them enough. They are a platform helping non-profits fundraise and all of their hard work on this event was so appreciated. #retinoblastoma #cancerresearch #upliftingathletes #fighton #proday #fundraiser #nonprofit #usc #childhoodcancer
Speaking in Minnesota for my boy Wyatt! Making up for all the bad snaps over the years. Nice April weather... Q is wishing he hadn’t shed as much hair this spring right about now!
One of the main questions I am being asked is what am I going to be doing now that I am graduating. One of my main goals is to grow and develop a business I have been working on for the last 18 months with my manager, business partner, and friend Daniel. The business is called Engage (@lets_engage) and is an online talent booking platform designed to digitize the process of booking anything from a speech to a once in a lifetime experience. I have been blessed to motivationally speak over the last 10 years to thousands of people. However, the process is far from easy and I want to first hand fix the problems I have faced every time I was booked. Through Engage, I hope to digitize and centralize the booking process: making it easier for both the booker and the talent to enjoy and deliver unrivaled customizable experiences. We have worked tremendously hard thus far to build the platform and are very proud of our progress. I encourage you to check it out at http://letsengage.com (the link is also in my bio) and enjoy for yourself the life changing experiences that our talent has to offer. PS- strokes can be negotiated on my golf experience 😜
Just got done presenting with @shelleysmithespn1 at @oncologycoa here in Orlando. Was an awesome presentation about how Shelley and I overcame our cancer and our relationship through it all. She’s an amazing woman. Proud to have worked with her over the last ten years. Appreciate all the nurses and doctors out there who work to beat cancer everyday. Was really blessed to fire them up today.
Today was another great day I’ll remember forever. Too bad they had to take the bar away from me 😜 Lots of hard work went into it and I appreciate all the support. Campaign is open until April 1st for anyone who still wants to donate or share.

I found myself a hot date to the Kings game tonight
In case you missed it, I really need your help. I am raising money to fund a clinical trial for a device that is thought to be able to completely cure retinoblastoma tumors by administering chemo directly to the tumors in the eye. You can pledge through the link in my bio. If everyone pledged a dollar per rep, we would meet the goal today. Please consider donating and sharing with friends. It would mean a lot to me. • • • • • • • • • • • #retinoblastoma #cancer #childhoodcancer #cancerresearch #blind #proday #usc #fighton #uscfootball #chemo
My mom and doctor didn’t know I was listening to their conversation. “No more options,” my doctor said. “We will have to remove his remaining eye.”, I held the old, bulky telephone closer to my ear and the unthinkable reality of going blind sunk in. It was similar to previous conversations, but the past seven times my cancer returned we had a solution that wouldn’t cost me my sight. I was 12 years old. My sudden screaming cut their conversation short. As my mom ran upstairs to console me, I pleaded with her: How could we not fight it with something? More chemo? I had already undergone a lifetime max of systemic chemo. More radiation? No, I had maxed out and was at a high risk of inducing a secondary fatal cancer. More laser treatment or cryotherapy? The cancer had become immune, it would no longer affect the tumors. How about where they go up my leg? No, the cancer would no longer respond to intra-arterial chemotherapy, we have done it too many times. PLEASE, I was begging, ANYTHING! I am raising money through my pro-day bench press on March 20th so that no child has to lose their sight again to the cancer that took mine. I am asking for your help. By going to pledgeit.org/jake you can pledge an amount per rep that I bench press. Go to the link in my bio to read the rest.
Last week I had the pleasure to speak at Bank of America’s Pacific Southwest Commercial Banking team leadership conference and the Manginelli Group’s sales conference. Awesome people looking to start off a great 2019. Wish them the best.
Last week I was honored at the @waltercampfootball awards for perseverance. It was truly an honor and I am so grateful to the foundation that they considered me. It was really humbling being around so many legends and it was such an amazing fun time.
With our skin tan and our hair long, to our fans who’ve been so patient, me and 40 back to work but we still smell like a vacation. @champagnepapi
Hope your girlfriend doesn’t see this 👀
Found a nice ride but don’t worry Quebec, you’re still my main wheels! #LabsBetterThanPorsches
