JERRY WALKER

Co-founder & CEO

A four-time high school All American and collegiate standout, Jerry excelled as one of New Jersey’s hardest working basketball players. A product of Jersey City’s tough streets, Jerry led St. Anthony High School to four State Champions and was an integral part of the high school’s 1989 National Championship team. After graduating from St. Anthony’s, Jerry enrolled at Seton Hall University where he earned a BA degree in Communications and led the Pirates to three consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament and the Big East Tournament Championship in 1992-1993. Jerry became known as one of the all-time favorite Pirates due to his tenacity and dedication. These qualities were the driving force behind a stellar collegiate career and have carried over to his work with Team Walker. When his professional basketball career came to an end, Jerry returned to his Jersey City community and founded Team Walker in 1996. Together with caring supporters and friends, Jerry, alongside his brother, Jasper, and Team Walker are proud to be making an important difference in the lives of thousands of children through academics and recreation over the past 20 years.  Where he once was winning awards for his athletic talents, he now is doing the same for providing community social service. In 2011, Jerry was named a “New Jersey Hero”, and was recently honored by Seton Hall University as for his social service in Jersey City as Entrepreneur of the Year.
