My name is Jack Dewitt. I am 21 years old, and I was diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia at age 10.
I currently live in Michigan and am going to college at the moment, majoring in both communications and theater. I am also a firearms enthusiast and 2nd Amendment advocate. This led to me founding and building my very own business called Cards Custom Arms. My business manufactures a variety of handgun holsters and magazine pouches. We also provide custom cherokee jobs for anything from pistols to rifles to motorcycles. One of my passions is hunting in which I have been lucky enough to take both elk and deer.I have been involved with FARA for many years, which led to my choice to become an ambassador. I was looking for something else that I could do for the FA community and it doesn't look half bad on a resume either.
In my time with the association, I have spoken on different panels with major pharmaceutical companies, including Pfizer, as well as the FDA. I'm happy to be here, and I hope that I can help FARA in its goal to fight and cure FA.
