“You must’ve had a GPA of 4.0 in college, no?”

“It’s amazing because I didn’t study or anything,” Jacobs explained, who was admitted for further work-up of shortness of breath and edema.  “What’s funny is that I’ve never been a straight-A student either, so this is really exciting for me!”

Evelyn Mattis, the cardiologist who read the echocardiogram, said she has never seen a TTE like this in her life.  She seen some EFs of 65, even 70 percent.  But 100?

“If you look here,” Mattis explained while showing us her images of her left ventricle, “he squeezes out every ounce of blood in that left ventricle.  I never thought I’d live to see the day: an EF of 100%.  Wow, that’s remarkable!  Jacobs, he’s just tremendously gifted.”

Jacobs’ feat puts him in the same elite category as Baby Samantha, who scored perfect Apgar scores of 10 and 10 back in 2014.
