Air Force Family Receives Sleep Number® Smart Bed & Surprise Visit from Superstar Cam Akers

Published: August 31, 2022

For Jacob, a crew chief and aerospace maintenance apprentice (say that ten times fast) in the Air Force, hard work and a positive outlook come naturally. As a relatively new Airman, he has worked tirelessly to improve the productivity and morale of his squadron. But what’s most impressive is how his infectious attitude carries home where he “tackles” his most important job as a husband and father of two. 

When Blue Star Families and Sleep Number®, partners for nearly a decade, heard that Jacob was also a big fan of the LA Rams, they knew he was deserving of a big surprise. 

What started as a simple day off last week, quickly turned into an experience the family will never forget. Jacob, his wife Julia, and two daughters were treated by Sleep Number to a full LA Rams experience where they got to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the practice facility, hang out with running back Cam Akers, and were given tickets to a Rams game this season. But if you asked their daughter, Charlotte, what her favorite part was, it was getting to hang out with her “new best friend,” Rampage. 

As if that wasn’t enough, Sleep Number surprised the family with a brand new Sleep Number i360® bed, and everything to ensure they get a good night’s sleep … which is priceless with two young kids.
