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 nonprofit foundation as a lasting legacy to honor his memory while following her passion for supporting our local first responder heroes.
