Head injuries seemed to follow entrepreneur Jessie Garcia like a bad habit, earning her the nickname “Tozuda”, or “hard head” in Spanish.

Marcus saw the game-changing potential of her invention and called up Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Reed to help Jessie understand how she can break barriers in the boardroom and get organizations interested in her product.
