About the New York Jets Fan Hall of Fame
The New York Jets introduced the Jets Fan Hall of Fame in 2017 to help recognize their fanbase and show appreciation. For the 2019 Class, fans within the tri-state area ages 18 and older submitted written nomination statements of 150 words or less, in addition to photographs. Both self-nominations and third-party nominations were permitted. Jets Rewards members received 500 points for a submission. A blue-ribbon panel of long-tenured Jets personnel selected the three 2019 New York Jets Fan Hall of Fame inductees. The New York Jets Fan Hall of Fame is displayed at Atlantic Health Jets Training Center and At MetLife Stadium during all Jets home games.
