Jarrett was your typical little boy, loved fishing and being outdoors. Fast forward a few years and Jarrett catches the Colorado state record for Largemouth Bass. This would be a big deal for anyone, but for this 17 year old it was the jump start he needed. After fishing many club tournaments and any other tournament he could get his hands on, Jarrett's dream came true. He was now part of the ESPN Bassmaster Top 150 Series at age 22. At age 25 he was the youngest to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series and was now a professional who toured and fished full time all over the US. Then the unexpected happened.
During a tournament in Georgia Jarrett felt a lump above his left collarbone. A few weeks later he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer. He then had a new goal to reach…beating cancer. After a year battle which forced him off the Bassmaster Elite Tour Jarrett underwent several intense months of chemotherapy and radiation. Once the treatments were finished Jarrett got the best news of his life, he was now cancer free. Today he spends several months each year inspiring Cancer patients across the country. Using the worst experience in his life to help motivate others through their toughest battles is what Jarrett Edwards is all about.
With Jarrett's near death experience it motivated him to fully live his new dream career in the TV Media field…Today at age 35 Jarrett host "Jarrett Edwards Outdoors" National TV.
