Jake Wood is the co-founder and CEO of Team Rubicon, a disaster relief organization with over 125,000 volunteers.
Wood had previously spent four years in the Marine Corps, serving in Iraq and Afghanistan as a scout-sniper.
Since founding Team Rubicon in 2010, Jake has built the organization into one of the United States’ most celebrated non-profits.
He is a sought-after speaker on issues of leadership, culture, and innovation.
In Jake’s latest book, Once a Warrior, Jake recounts how, over the past 10 years, he and his team have recruited over 130,000 volunteers to his disaster response organization Team Rubicon. Racing against the clock, these veterans battle hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, pandemics, and civil wars, while rediscovering their life’s purpose along the way.
Once a Warrior provides a gut-wrenching account of the true cost of our Forever Wars–and more importantly, a glimpse of what might become of America’s next greatest generation.
