Jacob Venditti

Is a social impact entrepreneur, community builder, multimedia producer, keynote speaker, big wave surfer, and passionate advocate for the cystic fibrosis community. He himself has CF and was once on a lung transplant list with only 15% lung function. Since taking Trikafta, he was removed from this list, has experienced only one pulmonary exacerbation in 3 years, and now has 50% lung function.

After this major improvement in his health, he now funnels his energy into his position as the founder and executive director of the Live Fearlessly Foundation.

Jacob prides himself on living a life filled with kindness, passion, and gratitude. He understands that every day is a gift, and shares that message to encourage others to live fearlessly. Jacob believes that challenge can be used as a tool to foster growth, and brings humor and joy to any situation - no matter the circumstance. He feels fortunate to be able to give back and make the world a better place.

Jacob's Work

Over the past 10 months Jacob has given out 109 activity grants in 21 states and 14 countries to people with cystic fibrosis to help enable and encourage them to live a healthy, active, and happy lifestyle.

He believes that by helping people with CF pursue their passion, the mental and physical toll of CF will be reduced. Jacob has spoken at events for the Maui Ola Foundation in California and Hawaii. He has also done philanthropy work for the Pipers Angles Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Jacob recently launched a new initiative with CFVests4Life to fill the need for pancreatic enzymes and multi-vitamins to people with CF in countries without the resources to acquire these basic CF needs. 13 prescriptions have been written, 7 doctors and hospitals have reached out to us, and a 6 month supply of pancreatic enzymes have made it to the hands of 3 very sick underweight patients in Tunisia.
