Baltimore Ravens fullback Jason McKie and his wife Stacy McKie are spending their honeymoon at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa. The NFL star’s decision to honeymoon at Sandals was inspired by his wedding planner who visited the property and boasted about the beautiful beach and the lush gardens. “We definitely made the right decision,” McKie remarked. “Antigua is beautiful and we are having a wonderful time on our honeymoon.”
The McKie’s epitomize the Sandals romance theme having met on an airplane seven years ago. “It was truly fate,” said Stacy McKie. “We met on a flight from Chicago to Miami and then we ended up being on the same flight coming back. If that is not romantic, I don’t know what is!” The McKie’s have two young sons who are 3 and 4 years old.
McKie is a seasoned veteran in the NFL with 9 active seasons. He played with the Chicago Bears from 2003-2010 and he recently signed a contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
The NFL star is a hard worker both on and off the field. In 2008, he started the Jason McKie Foundation with a mission to positively impact the lives of military personnel by offering educational scholarships to children who have been affected by a loss or severely injured parent. The foundation is very dear to his heart and he takes pride in giving back to the community. “My father served in the military for 24 years so I can relate to these children who are struggling. I do this because military personnel should not be forgotten especially since they are sacrificing their lives,” remarked McKie.
McKie says that being a father has changed his life and he hopes to inspire his children to make a difference in their community when they get older.
