Jamar Root Helps Students Find Their Passion

Jamar Root is a youth speaker and recent Temple University graduate who has a passion for inspiring students to find success. As the co-captain of his high school baseball team, Jamar learned the hard work it takes to not only play at a high level, but also overcome the natural pressures that come with being a student athlete. It wasn’t until his senior year when Jamar was confronted by a group of football players who wanted to fight him, that he found out what true leadership and friendship were all about.

Additionally, a cancer diagnosis at a young age taught Jamar the importance of living every minute to the fullest and following his passions in life.

Jamar’s unique point of view and relatability comes from not being far removed from the struggles and pitfalls he endured in middle school, high school, and college. Now, Jamar utilizes these experiences to help young students find their voice and be the difference on campus. He has been with TEEN TRUTH since 2022 and currently serves as the company’s #1 youth speaker.


“You can tell Jamar is super personable, thoughtful and passionate. He is a deep thinker and he killed it at our school!”

Michael Alfers, Assistant Director

Bishop Dunne Catholic School
