       Mr. MacARTHUR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Mr. Tom DeBlass of 
    New Jersey's Third Congressional District, and to express my sincerest 
    commendation as to all of his accomplishments.

    Fame as a Grappler. He has won titles such as the Pan American and 
    World Championships. Beyond his personal feats on the mat, Mr. DeBlass 
    has devoted his time to giving back to his community by opening his own 
    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

      Mr. DeBlass has used his expertise to produce his own world champion 
    students. He has created a legacy of martial arts success in his 
    community and has given young athletes the opportunity to develop and 
      Mr. Speaker, the people of New Jersey's Third Congressional District 
    are tremendously proud to have Mr. Tom DeBlass as an involved member of 
    their community. It is my honor to recognize both his personal athletic 
    accomplishments and his lasting contributions to our community before 
    the United State House of Representatives.
