SAN DIEGO STATE ATHLETICS, JLAB AUDIO INTRODUCE PARTNERSHIP
SAN DIEGO (Sept. 16, 2016) – San Diego State University Athletics and its multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s Aztec Sports Properties, announced today that JLab Audio will make its entry into collegiate sports with an integrated, exclusive partnership during the 2016-17 athletic season.
The relationship with San Diego-based JLab Audio primarily will center on Aztec football and men’s basketball – marking JLab Audio’s first foray into the college sports arena. As a corporate partner, JLab Audio will have category exclusivity providing for football coaches’ headsets and receiving exposure during the football noise meter for select game moments highlighted. Additional benefits for JLab Audio include expanded exposure during men’s basketball, including visibility with the in-stadium noise meter and sponsorship of in-venue video featuring player introductions. Also, at a pre-determined basketball game, JLab will host distribution of headsets to fans and receive videoboard mentions and logo displays throughout the game.
“We couldn’t be more excited about breaking into collegiate sports by teaming with San Diego State in our own backyard,” said JLab Audio CEO Win Cramer. “We’re proud of our products and continue to receive excellent feedback from consumers on our design, incredible sound and innovative technology. It’ll be a lot of fun and we look forward to being engaged with Aztec Nation.”
Complementing its season-long partnership benefits, JLab Audio will receive significant digital exposure through the official athletic website GoAztecs.com and interact with fans through a contest and giveaway offered through SDSU’s Facebook page in a promotion driven by social media firm Think Social.

Childhood cancer makes up less than 1% of cancers diagnosed today and the survival rate has increased to 90% with today’s medicine. Nonetheless, no parent wants to hear their child has cancer and unfortunately too many will hear this.
One of JLab Audio’s very own team members, Staci, who is our Corporate Account Manager, is proud to consider herself a childhood cancer SURVIVOR. At just five years old Staci went to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for surgery to repair a hernia. When the surgery was completed the doctor expressed to her parents that Staci’s abdomen appeared somewhat bloated or distorted and that he’d like to do a sonogram of her ovary. What they had anticipated to be a simple cyst, was in fact a grapefruit sized tumor on her left ovary. They removed the tumor along with her ovary, which would reveal itself as malignant only two days later.
On December 30, 1987 Staci would begin her first chemo treatment for a rare malignant cancerous tumor for children called an Immature Ovarian Teratoma. For the next 13 months she would go through a routine out-patient chemo treatment for five days, with thirty days off in between. She would attend school and play with friends just like any other five-year-old would while not in chemo. Staci recalls only feeling sick during those five days of treatments but never felt anything but normal while at school.
Throughout the next year (and ongoing after), Staci and her family would fight her battle side by side. While her parents would worry, Staci never did. “I was never scared to go to the hospital, the nurses made it so fun!”, says Staci.
On January 30, 1989 she had her last chemo treatment and was placed in remission, shortly after at the age of seven she was cancer free. Staci would continue to go back for checkups after and each result would be normal and healthy, she thanks a huge part to her doctor, Dr. Michael M. Etzl, and the nurses at the Phoenix Children Hospital.
With September being Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, we wanted to share Staci’s story in hopes we can support others. If you’re looking to help the cause in some way, please donate to the Batcole Foundation and read their story, or you can purchase our Batcole JBuddies for your kids where 50% of your purchase is donated to the foundation. Let’s all fight together!
