Jeff Kemp


Jeff Kemp Former NFL Quarterback and Author of Facing the Blitz

Jeff is a quarterback for strengthening teams. An NFL quarterback from 1981 to 1992, he and his father Jack Kemp (the former Vice-Presidential candidate and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development), were the first of only six sets of father/son NFL quarterbacks.

After his 11-year career in the NFL, Jeff founded and led the Seattle-based national non-profit Stronger Families, dedicated to helping families thrive. After 18 years as a CEO, Jeff and his wife Stacy transitioned to serve Family Life as Vice President and Catalyst from 2012 to 2017, helping leaders and influencers strengthen families. FamilyLife is an international ministry leader in marriage conferences and resources to build, heal and enrich marriages and families.

As he speaks and coaches throughout the United States, Jeff combines the best from professional team sports with the best of building strong relationships, team alignment and trust to strengthen the business. He’s persevered through the highs and lows of pro football, and led organizations to strengthen relationships and fuel collaboration. Jeff’s approach is both direct and winsome, and he inspires courage in his clients and audiences, vitalizing leaders, teams and individuals.

Event Reviews

"Jeff is an amazing speaker! His presentation was one of the best we have heard. He incorporated the premise of his book, Facing the Blitz, into the everyday situations that pregnancy centers face each day. He used it to challenge our attendees into not only supporting the center but to volunteer to mentor the girls and guys we see. He brought out the lack of knowledge our young people have about sex and the consequences they face because of it. He used Scripture to point out the need to serve and even reminded our elected officials they should be humble in their service. His message encompassed the very work of Heartbeat in our community and our needs in a seamless way. His appeal for donations WAS THE BEST EVER! There are not enough ways to say Jeff Kemp was the best speaker we have had. Every one of our attendees praised him and told us this was our best banquet ever. He provided a new insight into Heartbeat and our attendees walked away saying, 'For the first time, I truly understand the work and challenges of Heartbeat'."

"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."

— 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."

— President and Co-founder of CITYCommit

"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."

We appreciate your willingness to jump in at the last minute. You clearly understood the urgency of our situation, and responded quickly with a list of available speakers who fit our needs. You demonstrated a genuine personal desire to help solve our problem. After we selected a speaker, you made the process easy instead of requiring us to jump through numerous hoops. — CTI Group Adventure
