Every 40 seconds someone succumbs to heart disease and stroke – that’s 62,640 lives this February.

The American Heart Association is on a mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  R&R Insurance is a proud sponsor of the AHA's 2020 Heart and Stroke Ball taking place on February 15.  Leading the charge as this year's Chairman is R&R Owner, Jack Riesch. It's a personal mission for Jack to honor his late grandfather who passed from a heart attack and other life events proving that life can change in an instant - read more about Jack's mission.  

Wear Red, Tune In, and Donate

Jack Riesch Directory

While we’ve witnessed major medical and scientific advances, we cannot continue to allow this to be a trend.  Not for ourselves.  Not for our children.

R&R Insurance Owner, Jack Riesch, literally takes this to heart with a grandfather who passed away from a heart attack.  For him, the risk is real.  An accident left a younger brother a quadriplegic; his youngest brother passed away at 29 from esophageal cancer, and his brother-in-law who didn't make it home from Afghanistan. Jack knows all too well that life can change in an instant.  He is now passionate about providing resources for everyone to make improvements today for better tomorrows.

Why the American Heart Association?  "Walking my daughter down the aisle is WHY. Seeing my son get his diploma is WHY. Celebrating my next wedding anniversary is WHY.", reflects Riesch.

Paying closer attention to his own health in recent years with a regular exercise routine and eating a healthy diet, Jack is walking-the-walk already.  And now it's time to pay it forward by advocating for others to change their health outcomes.  Not only helping others to add more years to their life, but more life in their years.

By partnering with the American Heart Association, together we are able to support a culture of health:

  1. Improving quality of life
  2. Ensuring health environments
  3. Strengthening the economy
  4. Elevating care
  5. Changing policy

What is your WHY?  Join Jack in supporting the cause:  click for more information.
