About Jeff

Successful Quarterback  

Jeff Kemp’s personal story includes a persevering journey in the face of long odds during an eleven-year career in the NFL.  He was a successful back-up and starting quarterback for the Rams, Forty-Niners, Seahawks and Eagles.  Jeff and his father, former vice-presidential candidate and H.U.D. Secretary Jack Kemp, were the first of only five father-son NFL quarterback combos.  Jeff’s free agent story, ups and downs, and history facing blitzes both on and off the field provide him with a great breadth of experience from which to draw insights and illustrations and to keep audiences both riveted and engaged.


Empowering Leader

Jeff holds a B.A. in Economics from Dartmouth College and an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University.  After his football career ended in 1992, Jeff dedicated himself to public service, and founded Stronger Families in the Pacific Northwest, which he led for eighteen years.    His team has fostered collaboration among many groups to support families and coach healthy relationships, particularly for military, police, firefighter, and low income couples.

Today, as a Vice President and Homebuilder Catalyst, he plays a leadership-multiplying role with the national family-strengthening organization, Family Life.  He has spoken to businesses and organizations for over 20 years, with over 1000 presentations.

Teambuilding Catalyst

Through the Jeff Kemp Team, Jeff’s keynote speaking and team-building sessions are all about LIFT… because Life Is For Transformation.  He knows that meeting the challenges of today’s business environment requires growing as people, in relationships, teams, organizations, families and in community.  Jeff’s background in public service, leading organizations, strengthening family relationships and in competing in the NFL anchors his expertise and inspires his commitment to communicating the power of “LIFT” :




Relationship and Family Champion

Jeff’s most valued team is his wife Stacy and their four sons and daughter-in-law.  Jeff and Stacy have been married since 1983.  Intense personality differences and commitments to grow together have driven them to forge a personal, and entrepreneurial, mission to couples and marriages in need of strengthening.

Jeff’s background as a marriage and family leader translates compassionately and effectively into the business realm.  Many times leaders and corporate teams find their contributions to a team and a corporate vision are enhanced when their personal, most-valued relationships are strengthened.  Jeff sensitively deals with these realities as they relate to both personal and work life.
