Former All-American and NFL star Marlin Jackson created the program he needed as a youth: the Fight for Life Foundation, which teaches social-emotional learning modules in schools. Marlin is a humanitarian, a social entrepreneur, a husband, and is the father he never had to his three young boys. Marlin has successfully turned his childhood pain into a purpose-driven passion for helping others. He’s one of the most humble humans I have ever met and is changing the world for the better.
Marlin shares his story with unabashed vulnerability, which is so refreshing since he’s an all-around badass athlete. IMHO, Fight for Life modules should be taught in every school across the country, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.
He recently added tech founder to his ever-growing list of accomplishments. Marlin’s latest endeavor, which we did not discuss, is https://pulseanalytix.com
