Jennifer Chap

BuddyCPR and StrataVerve
Orlando, FL
Jennifer Chap is co-founder of BuddyCPR, an organization dedicated to saving lives from SCA, and co-founder of StrataVerve, a strategic research and marketing practice.

In 2012 Jennifer came face-to-face with SCA, when her husband Rick suffered SCA at home. Rick survived due to a “purrfect” chain of survival, when their cat Buddy alerted Jennifer. She dialed 911 and performed dispatcher-assisted CPR until EMS arrived. The couple founded BuddyCPR, because they believe everyone should "learn CPR with a buddy" given most SCAs occur at home.

Jennifer is passionate to improve community awareness and understanding of SCA, CPR and AEDs. Her firm, StrataVerve, has performed two national public awareness and messaging studies on behalf of SCA Foundation to determine baseline awareness and what moves the public to action.

Jennifer and Rick are AHA Certified BLS Instructors and volunteer with Orlando Fire Department’s Take Heart Orlando CPR program to train every citizen in CPR. They are SCA Foundation volunteers and advisors; past speakers at ECCU; AHA RESS poster presenter; volunteer speakers with CARES; and co-founders of BuddyCPR.org.
