InfoJerry Walker is the co-founder and CEO of the non-profit organization, Team Walker. In 1996, The Jersey City native returned from a successful basketball career to give back to his community and make a difference in the lives of youth.

Team Walker provides academic and athletic afterschool and summer programs for over 500 boys and girls from the ages of 3 to 18 through structured STEM learning, safe recreational activities and access to positive role models. Jerry’s motto is to give youth a first chance to be great that way they’ll need fewer second chances.

In 2014, Jerry’s dream of building a state of the art community center was realized. The Team Walker Learning Center has allowed him to expand programming to the entire Hudson County community. Whether he is providing a free Farmers Market for families in District 3 or providing free G.E.D or ESL classes at the Learning Center, Jerry believes in making a difference in the lives of others.

Jerry has served on several local organizations including the Jersey City Job Search Assistance Program and as a board member to his Alma Mater, St. Anthony High school. He is a graduate of Seton Hall University where he is a Life Skills Coach and also serves as a Supervisor for the Jersey City Department of Recreation.

Jerry is married to ShaRhonda and together they have a son, Chace and two daughters Rochelle and Shannon.
