About the Jordan McNair Foundation:

The Jordan McNair Foundation was established in June 2018 by Tonya Wilson & Martin “Marty” McNair following the death of their beloved son Jordan Martin Mcnair, an offensive lineman for the University of Maryland. Jordan’s untimely death was the result of a heatstroke he suffered during an organized offseason team workout.
 
Jordan’s death spurred into action the need to create a Foundation that would educate student athletes, parents, and the football community at large on the signs and symptoms of heatstroke and heat-related illnesses. With the right information, students and all involved in the athletic community can make informed decisions regarding the health and safety of all athletes. One life lost is one life too many and the Jordan McNair Foundation aims to reduce the occurrence of heatstroke and heat-related illnesses in student athletes.
