Sports Motivational Speaker Joe Theismann is a former two-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl winning quarterback who spent his entire NFL career with the Washington Redskins.

His career was cut short by a now infamous injury suffered when he was sacked by Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor in a game on November 18, 1985. Following his impressive career as a player, Joe has worked as an analyst for both ESPN and the NFL Network. He is also a successful entrepreneur and restaurateur who makes regular appearances as a keynote speaker and celebrity host for corporate conferences, fundraisers and other special events.

On Oct. 17, Theismann will be the featured keynote speaker for The Community Foundation of Jackson County held at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Millwood.

“Joe Theismann will share what we can all learn from his incredible career from being a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, to a career-ending injury, to his new start as an entrepreneur,” said Christy Sizemore, dxecutive director of JCCF Inc. “He’s an inspiring addition to the JCCF accomplished speakers and joins our all-star lineup of amazing speakers we have had in the past.”
