The Philadelphia Eagles center was photographed at his local McDonalds recently. According to Fox29, he made the stop for two reasons—to “pick up some breakfast,” which usually consists of sausage, egg, and cheese, and “autograph a jersey for his favorite employee.”
The employee, Danielle Bonham, posed for a picture with Jason and the #62 jersey as she was helping him at the drive-thru window. The photo has earned tens of thousands of likes on social media.
“I’m forever grateful and very fortunate to have crossed paths with him as many times as I did,” Bonham shared. “And I just wish him nothing but the best.”
The publication noted that Jason is well-known by his community in Havertown, PA, for being a down-to-earth and genuinely nice guy and for regularly supporting the local economy.
“He’s got his footprint all over this town,” local Havertown business owner Carl Henderson told the publication. “The flower shop over here, the Wawa, the Kettle down on the boulevard, I mean he’s all over St. Dennis fair with his kids. I’ve seen a lot of athletes come and go, but Jason’s a special dude.”
Jason Kelce Recorded a Christmas Album to Benefit His Local Children’s Crisis Center
Jason is so committed to doing good that back in December 2022, he teamed up with fellow Eagles stars Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson to record and release the holiday album A Philly Special Christmas. All the proceeds, which totaled more than $250,000 went to the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center in Philadelphia.
But it’s not just the big gestures that prove his heart. Jason spreads small bits of kindness everywhere he goes.
“He’ll open doors for older people, he’ll approach the kids and offer an autograph, he doesn’t hold back,” the owner of Havertown Grille shared, “he’s the kind of person you would hope for in terms of a customer.”
