SAN DIEGO — March 25, 2015 — The SEAL-NSW Family Foundation today announced that professional golfer and San Diegan Jennifer Johnson, one of the top ranked American players on the LPGA tour, will become an ambassador and spokesperson for the 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. The SEAL-NSW Family Foundation raises awareness and funds for special programs in direct support of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) families on a local, national and global scale.
Johnson, who won the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic, is the only San Diego player competing in the LPGA Kia Classic this week at the Aviara Resort in Carlsbad. Johnson finished last season ranked 49th on the LPGA’s Race to the CME Globe standings (17th top American golfer). Johnson will help raise awareness of the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation while playing on the LPGA tour with approximately 20 events in the US annually. Her career earnings are in excess of $1 million. Johnson was born, raised and currently resides in Carlsbad.
“Jennifer’s partnership with the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation highlights all the good San Diego offers the U.S. Navy station here. As a local San Diegan, she has seen first-hand how well the our community takes care of its local service members. Jennifer’s commitment to representing the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation will directly support our mission of building resilient families in the Naval Special Warfare Community. I am very proud of our partnership with Jennifer and am excited about the great work we’ll do together. Hit well Jennifer!”
