Jayson Williams Biography

Jayson

Williams is a nine-year veteran of the NBA and a graduate of Saint John's

University. He is a recipient of the NAACP Trailblazer Award for community

service and sponsors the Jayson Williams Foundation for Underprivileged Youth. A

native of New York City, he lives in northern New Jersey.

Former NBA All-Star Center Jayson Williams charisma, generosity and

high-energy hustle made him one of Americas most popular pro athletes in the

Metropolitan New York area during the 90s, and eventually landed him a

remarkable $86 million contract with the NJ Nets. Referred to as The Peoples

Player, Jaysons magnetic appeal and tenacity on the boards made him a fierce,

yet beloved competitor who spent his time off court flying planes, building

houses, and tending to his chores on the farm alongside his father. Brick by

brick, Jayson and his dad built his homea 27,000-s.f. palatial estate that

evolved into a bustling epicenter for charity events, benefit fundraisers and

family gatherings for many years.

Jaysons

sharp wit, outspoken candor, and sidesplitting one-liners made him a perennial

member of NBA sportswriters' All-Interview team and an audience favorite

on the national and local television and radio circuits. However, his cheerful

smiles and easy charm masked a life marked with heartbreak, tragedy, and

addiction that very few knew about. After suffering a career-ending leg injury

on April 1, 1999, he went on pursue a career as a national sports commentator.

Despite his success in television and radio, losing his basketball career began

to take its toll and his world slowly began to unravel. He soon returned to

many of the habits that defined his early wild years in the NBAbut this

time, the alcohol and recklessness would collide in a tragic and irreversible

accident that would cost a man his life and send Jayson to prison to face his

demons.

A

natural and animated storyteller, Jayson connects with his audience

effortlessly and urges them to always THINK because it only takes a

split-second and one terrible decision to change your life FOREVER. Keep your

dreams from becoming a nightmare, he cautions. He inspires them to set goals,

be responsible and stay accountable for their actions, warning that wise

choices will prevent them from losing it all and going from the playoffs to

prison.

Jayson

shares openly about the pain he endured and caused throughout his lifetime,

beginning with the battles he faced growing up as a biracial kid on the Lower

East Side, losing three sisters to violence and disease, and struggling to find

his place in the midst of much chaos and tragedy. His life story serves as a

cautionary tale that covers everything from bullying and prejudice, to alcohol

abuse and gun safety, to decision-making, coping with loss and the harsh

realities of life behind bars.
