I Gave My Heart to San Francisco

(HawaiiNewsNow)- Four-time San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl champion, Jesse Sapolu, will be in Honolulu supporting the release of his memoir, "I Gave My Heart to San Francisco". In his recently released book, the former Farrington High School and University of Hawaii-Manoa football standout who spent his entire 15 year NFL career in a San Francisco 49ers uniform, details the highlights and hardships of his remarkable playing career.

Sapolu triumphed on the field despite having a dangerous heart condition, a torn aortic heart valve. With this life threatening heart condition, Jesse went on to spend 15-years in the NFL with the 49ers which included nine appearances in the NFC title game, four Super Bowl rings, two Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro selections. Jesse remains the only player that owns a ring from Super Bowls XIX, XXIII, XXIV and XXIX.

San Francisco 49er fans can catch Jesse in any of his Honolulu appearances as he autographs limited collector's edition prints of his debut book. Football fans are invited to come and meet and talk story with Jesse.
