Jerone Davison

Candidate for U.S. Congress

Jerone Davison is a former Arizona State University Student-­Athlete and NFL player who travels the country sharing inspiration, passion, and faith. His unifying speeches full of truth, faith, and freedom for this country are memorable and moving.

He spent his childhood growing up in the deep south in the small town of Picayune, MS. It was there that he and his family fell upon rough times, and Jerone dropped out of high school. Sometime later, Jerone was able to enroll into Solano Community College in Northern California, in which he broke school rushing records as a player on the college’s football team. The once “Drop-Out” became an inductee into the school's Football Hall of Fame.

He accepted a full-ride scholarship from Arizona State University for Football and subsequently, was selected by the Los Angeles Rams. Frequently, as Jerone talks to youth, he retells his story and his example of how the American Dream can be achieved.

After retiring from the NFL, Jerone devoted his time helping devastated families. He worked in the California prison system for ten years as a liaison who unitied children with their incarcerated parents; all the while studying to become a licensed Pastor. He and his family began sharing their faith in their Northern California city within a food and clothing outreach.
