Jackson invented CPRWrap after a terrifying near-death event when her two-year-old son experienced a choking incident and required CPR. At the time, Jackson was working in a hospital and certified in CPR but the traumatic nature of the situation made her freeze. Luckily Jackson's husband jumped into action and was able to save their son's life, but this made her realize if she could forget her training during an emergency, what about the countless people in the world that’s not trained in CPR. Thus, CPRWrap was born.

"I started CPRWrap because I did not want another person to feel helpless when someone's life hung in the balance," said Jackson. "My vision for CPRWrap extends so far that I can no longer see where it ends. A few years ago my life consisted of taking care of my family - now the world is my family and I have much work to do. Everyone deserves a chance to live."

Even people experienced in CPR can forget their training in stressful situations. CPRWrap makes it possible for anyone to effectively perform CPR at a moment's notice and be protected while doing so. With over 20 years of medical experience in acute inpatient rehab, outpatient care, and home health care, Jackson is now applying her knowledge to make performing CPR less intimidating and accessible to everyone.

CPRWrap has already partnered with CHI Memorial Hospital Cardiac Rehab, HCA Parkridge Hospital, Chattanooga Police Department, Hamilton County Dept. of Education, Chattanooga State College, Maryland Diaper Bank, School Health, and many more.

Since the soft launch of CPRWrap in 2016, Jackson has presented two TEDx talks, auditioned for Shark Tank, won CHA Startup of the Year in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and won Urban League's Emerging Business of the Year award. CPRWrap has been featured in Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Business InsiderJEMS Medical MagazineHypepotamusBlack Enterprise Magazine, and many more. In 2019, CPRWrap was part of Austin-based startup accelerator program Techstars, where only 1% of the companies that apply are accepted.

"I had been told 'no' so many times, I could not fathom a prestigious accelerator like Techstars wanting me or my company," said Jackson. "Techstars saw the fighter within me and what I could accomplish if given a chance. All you need is passion, purpose, and a drive to execute your ideas to get things done."

More About CPRWrap and Felicia Jackson:

Chattanooga based startup CPRWrap, founded by Felicia Jackson, recently won the Nashville Entrepreneur Center pitch competition, Pitch for Good: Black Founders Edition, Up and Running Stage.

Jackson is also raising capital for her company, CPRWrap to help grow her team and solidify many more partnerships in the U.S. and abroad. "I want to empower every man, woman, and child to do the most basic, unselfish thing a person can do...Save A Life." For more information, visit CPRWrap.com
