"Finding the Setup in Setback"
Lunch with Keynote Speaker: Jake Olson - Former Longsnapper, USC


Jake will talk about his life story of facing cancer 8 times, going blind, overcoming blindness to become a Division I football player and mid 70s golfer, and attending USC. He'll discuss the mindset and philosophies that helped him achieve everything he wanted despite being blind, and how applying those philosophies in your own life can help make you more grateful and better at overcoming adversity.

Jake Olson is 22 years old, a resident of Huntington Beach, California and a senior at the University of Southern California. When Jake was 8 months old, he was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer, retinoblastoma. The disease claimed his left eye at 10 months old and in November 2009 Jake lost his right eye after battling the cancer for 12 years. Jake confronted many challenges and encountered many setbacks during his battle and loss of sight but remained strong through his faith in God. He has used his experience to inspire and motivate others by authoring two books, creating a non-profit foundation to help visually impaired children and support cancer research and by sharing his story openly as a motivational speaker.

Jake is also a life-long USC football fan. While in high school he learned to long snap and was the starting long snapper for his team his junior and senior year. After being accepted to USC, he was offered a walk on spot with the USC football team and had his first opportunity to snap in a live collegiate game on September 2, 2017 and was named the Pac-12 special teams player of the week.
