Sean James Student Athletes Foundation

Sean James is a former college athlete and NFL player who has been able to utilize his experiences as an athlete to truly understand what young people need to do in order to realize their full potential. Sean has been working with children for over 25 years. During that time, his programs have evolved to meet his widening vision of the ever- growing needs of today’s youth, and the ways which he can help them to meet those needs. 

In 2007, Sean created Sean James Student Athletes (SJSA) www.sjsafoundation.com as a means of providing youth with the opportunity to live out their dreams. And in 2011, Sean’s philanthropic work was recognized by Buick and the NCAA in their very first Human Highlight Reel that celebrates human achievement by shining a light on those student-athletes that continue to show leadership and dedication once they complete their academic programs and become active in their communities to have a positive influence on the lives of others.

In 2012, Sean founded Be In The Know About Bullying to provide education, leadership, and mentorship to students in order to help them be leaders in their communities, and combat the bullying epidemic faced by our nation!

In 2015, Sean teamed up with Dr. Lenny Lomax, Orthopedic Surgeon and CEO/Founder of Ultimaxx Health.  Ultimaxx Health is a company dedicated to resolving public health problems, such as the epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse through the development of natural solutions and the global promotion of general health and well-being.  As a former football player, Sean has witnessed firsthand the devastating short and long term effects of prescription painkiller abuse and their collateral effects. In light of his experiences, he shares in the mission and passion of Ultimaxx Health and Dr. Lomax, for finding a resolution to this pervasive problem, which is indiscriminately destroying lives, families, and communities. As Sean stated in an interview, "I celebrate Dr. Lomax for wanting to solve this problem!  It feels great to be working with like-minded people focused on one common goal...better general health and well-being in our communities.  How we respect ourselves and others is all inter-connected to the mental, physical and socio-economic issues facing the African-American community.”
