Florham Park, NJ, June 22, 2017 – The New York Jets confirmed today that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Woody Johnson, team owner, Chairman and CEO of the New York Jets to serve as Ambassador of the United States of America to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

If Woody Johnson is nominated and confirmed by the Senate, Christopher Johnson, his brother and an owner will become Chairman and CEO.  In that role, Christopher will directly oversee all day-to-day team operations.

“The New York Jets have been an integral part of our family since 2000, but this is a unique opportunity for Woody. His patriotism and commitment to our country have always been a passion of his,” said Christopher Johnson. “Over the years, we have learned that ownership of the New York Jets is a special responsibility. Personally, if Woody is nominated and confirmed, I would be honored to oversee the organization, continuing to build a team on and off the field that our fans are proud of and deserve.” 

"On behalf of the entire organization, we would be extremely proud to see Woody nominated and confirmed as U.S. Ambassador. We could not be more excited for him and his family," said New York Jets President Neil Glat.

Woody Johnson and his family purchased the NFL’s New York Jets on January 18, 2000. Woody, a fourth-generation member of the founding family of Johnson & Johnson, has built upon his family’s proud legacy of achievement as a successful businessman, civic leader and compassionate philanthropist.
