Biography

David M. Jacobson, MSW, LCSW, author, poet, professional speaker and social worker, former college of medicine instructor and former national director of training, is the recipient of a Presidents Award from Flashnet Marketing, a Joy Mask from the Korean Broadcasting System and both a Lifetime Achievement Award and a National Hero Overcoming Arthritis Award from the Arthritis Foundation.
As a child he suffered the loss of his father. In his late teens, he was an exceptionally strong varsity wrestler. In his early twenties, the young athlete had a second degree brown belt in Judo and had dreams of an Olympic career. At twenty-two he was diagnosed with a debilitating form of severe arthritis that put him in a wheelchair and fused many of his joints. His weight dropped from 136 to 112. From fused bones to funny bones, ten years later, he went on to complete an award winning fifty-mile unicycle ride! His life purpose is now to share his discovery of how humor made his world better and can make the world a better place for you and everyone else too.
