Jarrett Payton, the son of the late Walter Payton, the star Chicago Bears running back,
was the featured speaker at Tuesday's Schaumburg Business Association breakfast. His topic was "Discovering Your Greatness."
Payton played in five major bowl games in five years for the University of Miami (Florida), was MVP of the 2004 Orange Bowl, and played in the NFL for two years with the Tennessee Titans. That was followed by time with teams in Europe and Canada, and with the Chicago Slaughter.
Now he works as a radio and TV personality, and motivational speaker, as well as working with the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation, dedicated to the emotional healing of neglected, abused and underprivileged children. He and his wife also have established The Jarrett Payton Foundation, working with Chicago area schools to implement anti-bullying messages.
The breakfast was at Chandler's Banquets at the Schaumburg Golf Club.
