- Vice President of Family Life
- Former NFL Quarterback
- Author of Facing The Blitz


Jeff Kemp is a quarterback for the family. He is an Ivy League graduate who played 11 seasons as a Quarterback in the National Football League with the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco Forty-Niners, Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles. Today he is more passionate than ever about strengthening marriages and families and bringing groups and teams together for exciting results.

In 2012 Jeff joined FamilyLife as a Vice President and Catalyst for helping others strengthen families. FamilyLife, based in Little Rock, AR. is a national ministry leader in resources to build and enrich marriages and families along with radio outreach, marriage conferences and other resources to heal and strengthen families. Prior to joining FamilyLife, Jeff founded and led a dynamic organization, named Stronger Families, in the Pacific Northwest from 1993- 2010.

Jeff is a Dartmouth-educated MBA from a widely-respected political family. His leadership, compassion and inspiration are a part of his legacy.

He and his father Jack Kemp (former Vice-Presidential candidate and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development) were the first of only six sets of father/son NFL quarterbacks. Jeff entered the league as a free agent and quarterbacked for the Rams, Forty-Niners, Seahawks, and Eagles before turning the 11 years of experience into service for others.

Persevering through the highs and lows of eleven years in the NFL gave Jeff valuable insights on servant leadership, committed teamwork, and overcoming adversity. Today, he passes on those lessons as he illuminates God’s blueprints for manhood, marriage, and family.

Jeff and his wife Stacy have been married for over 30 years and have four sons who Jeff enjoyed coaching in various sports, especially football, while they were growing up. Jeff is an avid mountain biker and snow skier. He and Stacy enjoy mentoring young couples.

Facing The Blitz


Thank you for your Spirit-filled/led ministry in the CBN Chapel. The Lord used you in so many wonderful ways that day! We are still quoting you, recalling your servant-example, and reflecting on the “dignity/honor” message your wife spoke into your life. I am personally indebted to you for advancing the Spirit’s work in my own life. Our viewers and we in the chapel owe you a debt of love.
-Rev. Joel Palser, Ph.D., Vice President/CBN Chaplain 

Jeff Kemp was an amazing speaker for both our outreach breakfast and inaugural fund raising banquet.  More importantly, Jeff is an authentic leader, effective communicator and has a passionate focus regarding fatherhood, marriage and leadership at all levels of our communities and nation.  He was a personal encouragement to my board and me and will be considered a life-long friend to CITYCommit and an influencer in Southwest Florida.
-Brian Yost, President and Co-founder of CITYCommit

You gave us a memory of a lifetime when you visited the correctional facility. The prisoners still talk about your message, which was plain and real. As a Chaplain here my desire is to see these men become stronger and stronger in their faith and you helped push their faith a notch higher.
-Joseph Kilonzo, Correctional Facility Chaplain, Joint Base Lewis McCord, WA

Jeff's talks were very well received by the guys in Manhattan. Tons of good feedback! The emphasis on open, transparent relationships syncs well with NCS culture.  Look forward to connecting about how we could partner more in the future.
-Tom Lane, Energy Capital Partners and Founder, New Canaan Society, NYC

Jeff served as a much-needed catalyst to begin a movement of Small Groups among our men. His genuine transparency and his own lifelong commitment to friendships and small groups motivated many to take this step. Jeff lives what he speaks. He stepped into our context and championed the very priorities we wanted to articulate. Thank you, Jeff, for bringing these life-changing messages and resourced to us! 
-Roger Thompson, Man in the Mirror

You were amazing ...people thought you hit a grand slam. You tailored your message in such a thoughtful manner. So many people commented that they felt your passion through so many touching stories.
-Rob Hernandez, Event Organizer and FamilyLife New Staff Resourcing, Little Rock, AR

Jeff, your weekly videos are well done and target some of the issues we men need to be challenged on. The brevity and format are beneficial to grab men with busy schedules. As a pastor, I am having these weekly devotionals forwarded to 34 other men we are connected with. Thank you for investing in all of us.
-Pastor Vinny Sanzo, Lakeshore Assembly of God, Westfield, NY
