Through years of sheer tenacity in CrossFit competition and the prolific success of his company, NCFIT, Jason is a force of nature in the fitness world. However, Jason’s world was shaken to the core when his daughter was diagnosed with leukemia in 2016. Rather than get angry and bitter, Jason and his remarkable wife Ashley dedicated themselves to the fight — armed with relentless positivity and zeal. This was the ultimate test and the culmination of a lifetime of learning lessons (sometimes in the hardest of ways). Jason’s discovery of WHY helped him surmount almost every WHAT...no matter HOW.

Sandy Hook, Parkland, Virginia Tech, Santa Fe, the names have become infamous and tragically synonymous with atrocity.

This week Navy SEALs Marcus Luttrell and the Wizard welcome to the TNQ Podcast, Frank DeAngelis the Columbine principal at the time of the massacre, to tell his never quit story in the aftermath of despicable evil, and lay down wisdom accumulated in his 35+ years of service guiding the upcoming generations.

He mourned with the Columbine community and vowed to never forget those who were murdered and dedicated his life and career to helping his students - his kids - recover. He committed to staying on as principal to help the students and the community heal, and continues to this day assisting in the healing process for other communities around the country. An example of this is his recent book, They Call Me Mr. De: The Story of Columbine’s Heart, Resilience, and Recovery whose proceeds go toward funding three unique charities associated with recovery from the Columbine tragedy.

It has been demonstrated time and time again that economic opportunity is a precursor to a stable and secure society, but when this week's guest Matthew Griffen co-founded what would become Combat Flip Flops, the idea was a radical improbability. Join Navy SEALs Marcus Luttrell, the Wizard, and David Rutherford as they welcome Griffin, a former US Army Ranger and forward-thinking vetrepreneur, to this week's episode of the TNQ Podcast.

Founded in 2012 with Donald Lee, also a former Ranger, their mission was to "create peaceful, forward-thinking opportunities for self-determined entrepreneurs affected by conflict." This Never Quit story against the odds starts in a failed combat boot factory in Afghanistan, but grows to a shining example of socially-conscious business practice that now manufactures multiple products around the globe. From sarongs, belts and scarves in Afghanistan aiding secondary education for Afghan girls, to supporting de-mining efforts in Laos selling jewelry manufactured from metals re-purposed from the disarmed explosives themselves. Join the Team Never Quit crew for a mind-expanding discussion on yet another inspiring and motivating individual putting the Never Quit mindset into action to maximum effect.

Because of his remarkable accomplishment, he was able to start one the largest non-profits of its day, the Livestrong Foundation which helped millions of people around the world in their fight against cancer. And at the height of his fame, fortune and following it was discovered that he and many members of the US Postal Service Team had been cheating the entire time with an elaborate doping program. Ultimately Lance was stripped of all his titles, disgraced around the world, lost his fortune, and is now actively engaged in a 100 million dollar lawsuit against the federal government.

William Kyle Carpenter’s Medal of Honor Citation:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an Automatic Rifleman with Company F, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, 1st Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on 21 November 2010. Lance Corporal Carpenter was a member of a platoon-sized coalition force, comprised of two reinforced Marine rifle squads partnered with an Afghan National Army squad. The platoon had established Patrol Base Dakota two days earlier in a small village in the Marjah District in order to disrupt enemy activity and provide security for the local Afghan population. Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base Dakota when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved toward the grenade in an attempt to shield his fellow Marine from the deadly blast. When the grenade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine. By his undaunted courage, bold fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of almost certain death, Lance Corporal Carpenter reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

At the age of 24, Dewey Bozella was sentenced to life in prison for a ghastly murder, but it was a crime which he did not commit. Over

the years he had multiple opportunities to go home a free man. The catch? Simply admit you’re guilty they would say.

You’ll be asking yourself “could I possibly be capable of doing the same?” Not until you understand the personal transformation he underwent while behind bars, can you begin to understand how an innocent man would value his integrity and personal reputation far greater than his freedom. He shares that his journey was one rooted in the fundamental power of taking control over your circumstances by accepting responsibility for one’s actions and choices, even in the face of tremendous injustice.
Beyond delivering an undeniably fascinating story, Dewey lays out his seven principles of life. Seven very practically applicable pieces of advice from a man who discovered them the hard way, and put them to use to raise himself from a trial by fire.
