Jarvis Officially Retires

The great Cookie Jarvis, an enormous competitive eater who is known as much for his confidence (arrogance) as for his eating ability, has officially retired.

Jarvis was the top-ranked IFOCE American eater in the 2003 season and racked up a slew of records, including Russian and Chinese dumplings, ice cream, cannoli, and corned beef and cabbage.

Cookie reportedly wants to get off the road and spend more time with his wife, daughter and son. His time has been dedicated to his numerous entreprenurial efforts and the construction of a new house.

Cookie's presence in the competitive eating arena will not diminish, however. His custom trench coat alone is enough to keep his name top of mind for decades.
