True American Hero – Jake DeSantis

“The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear.”

My next True American Hero is, of all things, a corporate officer of American International Group, better known as AIG.  Jake DeSantis was an executive vice president of AIG’s financial products unit for the past 12 months.  It seems like a stretch to suggest that anyone from AIG is a hero, but there are many left in the company who are trying to fix the problems and many former AIG employees are speaking.
