Our Story 


Jess W. Rousey  1933 - 2020

The Jess Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation, Inc. was founded by Samantha Rousey Glass in 2021 in memory of her late father, Jess Rousey.  Samantha could think of no better avenue to honor her biggest hero, her dad, than by establishing this non-profit foundation as a lasting way to honor his memory while following her passion for supporting our local community heroes. Public safety appreciation with a special emphasis on support and advocacy for our law enforcement has always been a personal passion and her father always supported her volunteer efforts to support the heroes who serve and protect our communities. 

Our Mission 

The Jess Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation, Inc. is a certified 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was formed to provide advocacy, support, and appreciation opportunities that honor local heroes who protect and serve our communities through their dedication to public safety. Our team is made up of all volunteers and our mission is to serve and give back to first responders while facilitating the strengthening of relationships between the community and public safety with an emphasis on law enforcement support and appreciation.
