"My name is Jacobb Stever. I am a Sophomore at Fremont High School. I have been raising money for the American Heart Association since 1st grade. I have been doing this for my Aunt Connie who died of a massive heart attack at the age of 37.
Nobody saw it coming. The heart disease went undetected for four years. I want to be able to help people who are dealing with this disease, and to inform people of the seriousness of this disease. In third grade I set the record for most amount of money raised for the American Heart Association in my school through the Hoops For Heart Program.
Last year I decided to host a three on three basketball tournament where all the proceeds went to the American Heart Association, I raised 1,200. I have decided to hold another 3 on 3, and want to go bigger!!! This event will be held March 23rd in the Fremont Middle school big gym from 9am-5 p.m. I invite everyone to come out and support this cause. There will be hotdogs, chips and pop or water for a small donation. There will be T-shirts for sale for 10$. There also will be a 50/50 and drawings for great prizes donated by our community.
In loving memory of Connie Jean Klonowski. May 14th 2003"
Thank you Jacobb. This world could do with more young men like you.
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
- I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
