About the Author
Jarie Bolander caught the startup bug right after graduating from San Jose State University in 1995 with a degree in electrical engineering. With 6 startups, 10 books, and 7 patents under his belt, his experience runs the gamut from semiconductors to life sciences to nonprofits. He also hosts a podcast called The Entrepreneur Ethos, which is based on his last book by the same name. When he's not helping clients convert a concept to a viable strategy, he can be found on the Jiu-Jitsu mat (he's a blue belt), interviewing entrepreneurs on his podcast, or researching the latest in aircrete construction techniques. He's engaged to a wonderful woman named Minerva who has been a supportive and wonderful partner in this new chapter of his life. Currently, Jarie lives and works in San Francisco, where he is head of market strategy for Decision Counsel, a B2B growth and Go to Market consulting firm.

"The courage it took to share this story of love and loss is an incredible testament to the bond Jarie and Jane shared which I was so fortunate to witness. This book honors Jane's memory in a way that will bring comfort and guidance to others experiencing similar tragedies."
-London N. Breed, San Francisco Mayor

"A deft recollection that brings the journeys of both a patient and a caregiver into focus."
--Kirkus Reviews

". . . an intimate glimpse into what it's like for a man's man to feel grief, and express that grief; and perhaps most importantly, deal with that grief to go on to live a fulfilling life."
--BookLife Reviews

"The prose is thoughtful about making use of contemporary images and figurative language to render leukemia and chemotherapy real . . . Powerful and distinctive, the memoir Ride or Die covers a couple's struggle with terminal leukemia."
--Foreword Clarion

"Ride or Die is an emotional read in which Jarie Bolander opens his heart to us. . . . appreciated Jarie's appealing writing style with occasional self-irony and the grains of wisdom he shares.
