Jacob Schick | CEO of 22Kill
One Tribe. One Fight.
A passionate and fearless leader whose quick wit and stories of intestinal fortitude have a profound impact on everyone he meets, Schick is currently the CEO of 22KILL. This organization has created a community that raises awareness and combats suicide by empowering veterans, first responders, and their families through traditional and non-traditional therapies. Schick has become a staunch advocate for maximizing the potential in people from all walks of life and shares his story and the effects of being severely wounded at public speaking engagements throughout the country, motivating people to be better tomorrow than they were today, and raises awareness to the epidemic of the 22 warriors that die by suicide every day. Schick has appeared on James Gandolfini’s HBO special “Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq,” as well as “60 Minute Sports.” He has also been featured in roles in Clint Eastwood’s productions of “American Sniper” and “The Mule” and appeared in Bradley Cooper’s production of “A Star is Born."
“ACCA and their staff have turned their annual conference into the most educational, informative, and worthy conference out of all the HVAC and trade conferences anywhere in the world,” said Brian Stack, president of Stack Heating Cooling and Electric, ACCA events committee chairman, and vice chairman of ACCA’s board of directors. “I am very much looking forward to this year’s keynote speakers, as I’m sure they will inspire, motivate, and impact us as leaders, like in years past.”
