While I never met Jim Fassel, I’ve always felt that I knew what he stood for. It takes a strong confident individual with aspirations of accomplishing something bigger than oneself to coach in New York, it takes a very special, grounded person who believes and loves tradition to coach the New York Giants, and it takes a selfless man of faith and family to lead a group of young men when faced with a horrible tragedy such as September 11th.

Jim Fassel was that man.

The Jim Fassel Foundation Memorial Celebrity Golf Tournament

The Fassel Family along with the Jim Fassel Foundation is paying tribute to Jim with a memorial golf tournament to benefit first responders and the families in the NYC metro area.  With this being the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 they will look to make substantial donations to the FDNY, NYPD, and NYC EMTs. 

The Jim Fassel Foundation Memorial Celebrity Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, August 30th at Upper Montclair Country Club. Jim Fassel Foundation was established in 2001 in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks.The Foundation has distributed $1 million dollars to support 33 different charitable organizations that honor and assist first responders, law enforcement, their families, and other important causes.

Celebrities/Guest Players:

Phil Simms, John Elway, Tiki Barber, Otis Anderson, and more…

Date: August 30, 2021


“Anyway, so I went over there, and it was amazing how these guys were dirty; they didn’t look like they’d ever slept, but they got up and came over and shook my hand to thank me. I said, ‘Buddy, I need to thank you guys.
