Powerlifting and basketball athlete, Jacob Wempe, is a National Games competitor with plenty of medals to show for his hard work and competitive spirit.  A graduate of Bowie High School in Austin, Wempe volunteers at St. Vincent de Paul Society and now helps train varsity football players at Bowie.  He also works as a "greeter" in a well-known local hamburger restaurant

Besides medals and ribbons, Wempe has a little extra motivation to do his best at competition, his dad is his powerlifting coach.  An athlete since 2000, Wempe's family said SOTX has changed his life for the better.  His social skills have improved and so has his health - he is down to a healthier weight since he joined SOTX.  In his spare time, Wempe stays very active by swimming, playing golf and dancing.  He also likes to watch movies and listen to music.
