At a Glance
Jason Odom is a former American college and professional football player who was an offensive tackle in the National Football League for four seasons during the 1990s.A true Florida Boy, Odom played for the Florida Gators and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jason and his wife, Linda, have two children, Jonathan and Lidia.
Jason and his wife Linda met each other at the University of Florida during their freshman year. He was there to play football and she was on the basketball team. They were from the same county, but didn't know each other. Linda's Mom knew Jason was a young man with character and wanted her daughter to meet him. After she practically dragged an embarrassed Linda to meet Jason, they became friends and were dating a few months later. Jason said he knew she was the one early on. They were engaged and married shortly after Jason was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
When he saw Linda give birth to their first daughter Lauren, Jason felt a "crazy range of emotions." He wept and laughed while hugging his wife and new daughter. Since then he has had the opportunity to weep and laugh again while witnessing the birth of his son Jonathan and his second daughter Lidia. Jason and Linda have made it a priority to teach their children that they can be used by God - even at an early age. They also stress living with integrity, and Jason admits a great challenge is the fact his kids are constantly watching him to make sure he is living a life of integrity - and that includes driving! Attentive kids can be wonderful accountability partners.
When he has time with his children, Jason enjoys hunting or attending Gator games with them. He and Linda both have a passion for athletics, working out at the gym together and bike riding. If you ever want to see their competitive spirit come out - you can catch them on the racquetball courts where Linda gives Jason more than he can handle. While they are passionate about competing, they are even more passionate about their marriage and raising Godly children.
