LATE WRESTLER’S WIFE AND BROTHER START NON-PROFIT

Jon Huber Legacy Foundation will honor late wrestler’s dedication to family and career

ROCHESTER, NY, September 29 – On the same day All Elite Wrestling (AEW) makes its debut in Jon Huber’s hometown of Rochester, NY, his family and friends are announcing the creation of the Jon Huber Legacy Foundation.

The Foundation will focus on providing support to people in creative fields who have not taken  the next step in their career because of family obligations.

“Jon almost gave up on his dream of wrestling because of his family,” said Amanda Huber, “But  he got the call to move up to WWE while we were in the hospital with our first child. I can’t  think of a better way of honoring his commitment to family and his career than to help other  people who are facing the same dilemma.”

Beginning in 2022, the Foundation will select a group of creative individuals to support with  resources, connections, practical skills, and direct funding. The cohort will meet throughout the  year to learn from experts in areas including business planning, artist management, public  relations, brand management, finances, and IP law. These skills and connections will help them  provide for their families while also helping them pursue their dreams.

“Many artists and wrestlers are never taught how to manage their finances, investments, and  assets in a way to make sure their family is secure,” said Chris Huber, “Like our father, Jon  always wanted to make sure he was making decisions that were the right decision not only for  his career, but also for his family.”

The foundation will announce its first application round in early 2022.
