My name is Jesse Kamekona and I served 20 years in the United States Navy and retired as a Master Chief Petty Officer. A devoted husband and father of three. I defined this proprietary accessory, with great vision for its commercial use, based on a realization one day at the age of 13 at the movies. I leaned back on the seat and left with a rash on the back of my head and just thought about how dirty the seating was as it is used by so many individuals, yet, its cleanliness is rarely a focal point for the people who utilize the seat It has taken me over 30 years to see this vision come to fruition; but it has been well worth the wait. I had a realization one day while sitting at the movies; a scary one at that. I left the theater with a rash on the back of my head, and it dawned on me that I wasn’t sure if they ever cleaned those seat rests. So for years I wore a hoodie every time I went to the movies and with a wife who loves the movies; that was a lot. When I started traveling for work I also realized that this same uncleanliness was true for airplane seats, and rental car seats.
I tried to find a product that could solve this problem but there wasn’t anything convenient to use. I had to find a way to prevent direct with all of these germs. So I went out and bought a sewing machine and different materials and went to work. After many late nights and wanting to have a simple and compact way to shield myself and others from the “dirty headrest” I invented the” Original Seat Beanie”.
I am thrilled to be able to offer this easy to use product to the community. The Seat Beanie is a great shield against germs and gives you a sense of comfort and ease when you sit down in pubic seats. I also give part of my profits to cure cancer and help homeless Veterans.
