Jesse James was a standout tight end for three seasons at Penn State, and as the Director of Marketing for the PSU chapter of Uplifting Athletes, he helped the team reach the $1 million milestone in funds raised for kidney cancer research.

As Jesse prepares to enter the NFL, help him support the rare disease community at the 2015 NFL Combine.

For every bench press rep that Jesse James records at the NFL Combine, fans can pledge a dollar amount to benefit Uplifting Athletes, the national nonprofit organization that aligns college football with rare diseases. With his elite physical strength, Jesse stole the show at Penn State's 2014 Lift For Life fundraising event with 27 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press, and he hopes to make to put on a similar display NFL Combine.
