Legislator Kennedy Joins Marty Lyons At Ribbon Cutting Of Commack Marty Lyons Foundation Office

Press Releases

The newest office of the Marty Lyons Foundation opened in Commack.

Commack, NY - December 10, 2013 - On Wednesday December 4, 2013, Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr., Minority Leader of the Suffolk County Legislature (12th LD), joined with other local officials to once again honor former New York Jet Marty Lyons on the occasion of the opening of the Commack office for the Marty Lyons Foundation. 
Mr. Lyons, who was recently honored by the New York Jets and inducted into the New York Jets Ring of Honor, was one‐fourth of the feared front four of the 1980’s Jet teams, known as the New York Sack Exchange was known for his hard work and ferocity on the field, but maybe is better known for his kindly and charitable ways off the field.
While with the Jets, Mr. Lyons started the Marty Lyons Foundation, helping give wishes to terminally ill children between the ages of three and 17. Since its creation, the Foundation has grown tremendously with nine Chapters, spanning across 11 states. 
The newest location, located at 354 Veterans Memorial Highway in Commack may be reached at 212‐977‐9474 or via email at
“Marty is a wonderful man, a terrific leader, who has made it his passion to give hope to those children who are ill with terminal illnesses by fulfilling one of their wishes,” said Legislator Kennedy. “Marty is an NCAA football national champion from Alabama, a former professional football player, a broadcaster, but his greatest accomplishment is this foundation and I am extremely excited to help Marty however I can and to have him right here in my district,” Kennedy continued.
