Aki Jones, graduate of Fordham University and former NFL player for the Washington Redskins, mentor and international coach sadly and unexpectedly lost his life on October 12th, 2014 in Miami, Florida while working as an account executive for the Miami Dolphins. Upon reading up on his diaries of his time coaching football in Poland and recalling on my memories with him as my best friend in college and beyond, Aki's life work wasn't finished. He had big plans to help the future of the game, to encourage children to dream big and pursue the sport and champion this new opportunity for the underprivileged. Through the Aki Jones Memorial Foundation that I am starting, along with his mother Vernette Steel, and best friend and teammate Tad Kornegay, we can make his vision a reality. Imagine an under privileged school receiving a new field or equipment. Imagine ones dream to go to college becomes a reality? The Aki Jones Memorial Foundation is going to exist to live Aki's mission.

Latest Update

Hi everyone! Im speaking to our non profit consultant today at 4pm! Im so excited to move on to the next steps! Please please please share this link amongst your friends and family. Please refrain from posting on FB as we'd like to keep this a bit closer to the family, but if you can share via email or text, we'd really appreciate that! We're looking to raise $2000 more as we need to secure a website, a web manager, social media management and a logo. All of this takes money and once we have it up, we will be able to solicit from bigger companies! Please make sure you get your fam on board for the best cause in the world! Any amount helps us! Thanks again, i'll be back with another update after my call! Best, Karinah

Hi donation family! Just keeping everyone in the loop with where we're at! Yesterday, i officially booked our first appointment with a 501c3 consultant and the paperwork is to be filed on Friday! Additionally, we are at a little over $1700 in donations! I truly am in shock! Thank you all for trusting us to build a foundation where Akis legacy can live on forever!!! We still need about $2000 more but we believe in the power of community and togetherness and we trust we will get funded by those who know and love Aki. Again, thank you thank you thank you so very much! Soon we're going to be making Youth Football a reality for EVERY boy in the world!
