Gemará Williams knows the importance of hard work and perseverance. After all, those are the traits that helped land him a spot on one of America’s greatest NFL teams and
later, enjoy a lucrative career in Business and Technology. A former New England Patriot, Gemará spent over 4.5 years playing professional football and was part of the Patriot’s 18-1 AFC champion and Super Bowl contesting team.
A Detroit, Michigan native, and the middle child of 4, Gemará was the first in his family to graduate from college, earning his bachelors of science degree from the University of Buffalo. With a plan to transition from professional
sports into the business world, Gemará seemingly did the impossible – he earned his MBA while simultaneously playing football.
Today, Gemará is a husband and father who now exudes his passion and competitive spirit in Information Technology as a Sr. Client Engagement Executive for RL Canning Inc.
He serves as the 2 nd Vice President of the Chicago Chapter NFLPA, NFL Alumni group, Board of Director for Ryan Banks Academy and Chicago’s Speakeasy Men of Excellence. He devotes his time to philanthropy and motivating children in Chicago to overcome life’s obstacles with two characteristics that molded him into the man he is today – hard work and perseverance.
