NFL Wife & President, Off the Field Players' Wives Association
A native of Newport News, Virginia, Ericka Lassiter is a philanthropist who loves working with charitable organizations and giving back to others. From sunrise to sunset, Ericka manages to incorporate being a devoted wife, mother, friend, community/school volunteer, and entrepreneur into her daily activities. Ericka says she learned at an early age from her parents that giving back to others was a must and finds it so rewarding.
An honor graduate of Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia, Ericka’s career path expands beyond her degree in Management and Computer Information Systems. Ericka also works as a Realtor in the Phoenix Metro area and serves as the President of Off the Field Players’ Wives Association, a national organization for wives of National Football League players.
Ericka currently resides in Chandler with her husband Kwamie (who played with the Cardinals, Chargers and Rams) and their boys, Eric, Kwamie II, Kwinton, Kwincy and her nephew Darius. She is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Tempe Alumnae Chapter and Co-Founder of Lassiter’s TACKLE (Teaching All Children to Kickoff Leadership in Education) Foundation. Ericka dedicates her time to a variety of community service organizations in the valley. Close to her heart are those that focus on families coping with sickle cell anemia, which is a disease that affects her youngest son.
Ericka truly enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, and putting smiles on the faces of others.
