Jesse Haws

Tournament Director

I am the novice cornhole player of the group, but it was my idea to start Tossin’ Away ALS in 2014. In 2012, I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and I’m currently working as a full-time video editor at a local television station by night and a cornhole tournament director by day. I handle almost all of the logistics for Tossin’ Away ALS, so if you have any questions, I’m your guy. I am a HUGE sports fan and love everything about them. Most of my free time is either spent playing sports, watching sports, or reading about sports. I also love spending time with my family and can’t wait to be a dad in December! My desire to join the fight against ALS started after my grandpa passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2001. Tossin’ Away ALS is our way of standing up to ALS, and we appreciate all those who stand with us in this fight each and every year!

Eliza Haws

Asst. Tournament Director

I am the expert cornhole player in the family and the cheerleader behind Tossin’ Away ALS. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Recreation Management and currently work as an activities coordinator for a local senior center. I’m in charge of collecting donations for the raffle portion of our tournaments and can be found managing the registration and check-in tables on the day of the event. The most important thing I do, however, is keep Jesse from losing his mind each year. I love art walks, baking, and convincing my husband to take me to different theater shows around the valley. I never got to meet Grandpa Haws, but I know he would be proud of Jesse and the amazing event he works so hard to put together every year. We hope you and your family will join us for some fun in November. Together we are making a difference in the fight to find a cure for ALS!
