Jacob “Jake” P Schick
Jake Schick is a third generation Marine who epitomizes sacrifice and service. A wounded and thriving veteran, Jake is currently the Executive Director of 22Kill. After a triple-stacked tank mine detonated below his vehicle in Al Anbar Province, Iraq in 2004, Jake suffered compound fractures in his left leg and left arm; multiple skin, ligament and bone losses; varying burns; partial loss of his left hand and arm; amputation below the knee of his right leg, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Jake has become a advocate for maximizing the potential in people. He motivates people to be better tomorrow than they were today, raise awareness of the suicide epidemic and draw attention to the statistic that 22 warriors die by suicide every day. Jake has appeared on James Gandolfini’s HBO special Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq as well as 60 Minute Sports. He also played a role in Clint Eastwood's American Sniper.
