Jacob Landis is a part-time worker and a stay-at-home parent in Annapolis, Maryland. Jacob received his first cochlear implant in 1999 at the age of ten. In 2013, at the age of 24, he went on a 10,500-mile bicycle ride to help fund cochlear implant surgeries for those who cannot afford one. Jacob loves using his implant to hear his daughter learn to talk and listen to podcasts while walking the dog in the morning. While not the full-time cyclist he once was, he still loves riding his bike, and Jacob's Ride is still helping others.
