Felicia Jackson, the inventor and owner of CPR Wrap, was certified in CPR but froze when her toddler son stopped breathing in the back seat of her car in 2002. Thanks to the quick actions of her husband, their son survived, but Jackson walked away with a new mission. CPR Wrap makes it possible for anyone to effectively perform CPR at a moment's notice. A physical therapist with over 20 years of medical experience in acute inpatient rehab, outpatient care and home health care, Jackson has built her business on the mission of making performing CPR less intimidating and more accessible to everyone. She graduated from Launch Chattanooga's Entrepreneurial Academy in 2015, and from the CO.LAB Accelerator in 2016. In 2017, she was named the Chattanooga State Community College Alumnae of the Year.
