Our Story 

Jess W. Rousey  1933 - 2020

The Jess Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation, Inc. was established in 2021 by Samantha Rousey Glass in her father's memory as a lasting legacy to the light that can outshine the darkness of grief.  Samantha could think of no better avenue to honor her biggest hero, her dad. This nonprofit foundation is a testament to her dedication to honor his memory and our passion for supporting our local first responder heroes

Our Vision

At the Jess Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation a big part of our mission is to find and address where the needs of our heroes and their agencies are.  

We are proud to have expanded our reach from just one county when we started in 2021 to now serving multiple counties in the greater northwest Georgia area. As we identify and address where needs are, we are committed to continue to grow to meet those needs.  Currently our organization serves agencies in and around Cobb, Paulding, Haralson, Cherokee and Polk Counties including city agencies located within and near those counties. We strive to help as many heroes as possible.

Of course as we continue to grow and expand our reach to serve even more heroes we need your help more than ever. Please consider becoming a sponsor or donor. We are a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization and your donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law under IRS Section170.


Proudly Serving 

and Beyond
