Brodie Lee's Family Launch The Jon Huber Legacy Foundation

The popular AEW star passed away in December 2020

Preceding last night’s Brodie Lee dedicated edition of AEW Dynamite from Rochester, New York, it was announced that a foundation is to be set up in the late former TNT Champion’s name.

The Jon Huber Legacy Foundation was announced by Huber’s widow Amanda Huber, and his brother Chris Huber, and will focus on providing support to people in creative fields who have not taken the next steps 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 honouring his commitment to family and his career than to help other people who are facing the same dilemma.” 

The Foundation will select a group of creative individuals to support with resources, connections, practical skills, and direct funding, beginning in 2022. 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.”
