During a recent interview on the show "Highly Questionable", our friend and partner James Jones talked about his struggles with homelessness as a child and how it has inspired him today to not only stay humble as one of the top wide receivers in the league, but also to start his own non-profit foundation.
Love Jones 4 Kids Foundation was started by Jones and his wife, Tamika. The mission of the foundation is to "enrich the lives of children living in disadvantaged and underserved communities by conducting and sponsoring a variety of programs to help young people overcome obstacles, stay in school and prepare for challenges in life."
Jones also shared a romantic, yet semi-humorous story while on the show. He shared the story of his proposal to his wife. It took place at one of her favorite restaurants, Red Lobster. Jones went to the restaurant the day before he popped the question to set the proposal up. The next night when they were out for dinner, not only did Tamika's favorite delicious cheddar biscuits get served to their table, but along came a diamond ring with Tamika's name on it!
