Dallas Cowboys Football Legend
Heisman Trophy winner, Super Bowl MVP and Pro Football of Famer, Roger Staubach generated excitement every time he took a snap from center. His uncanny ability to lead the Dallas Cowboys to come-from-behind victories engineered no less than 23 fourth quarter comebacks. After serving his four years in the Navy, Roger played his entire 11 years of professional football with the Dallas Cowboys, leading the team to four Super Bowls and achieving victories in Super Bowls VI and XII. His pro career culminated in his selection into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985, his first year of eligibility.
Staubach has carried over the same winning attitude and traits from his successful football career into his business career. In 1977, Roger entered the commercial real estate industry, forming The Staubach Company. Over the years, he expanded services to meet clients' ever-changing requirements and grew to 1,600 employees serving 3,000+ clients from 70 North American offices. In July 2008, The Staubach Company merged with Jones Lang LaSalle, bringing together the unique strengths of two powerful organizations into one integrated global company. Roger is now the Executive Chairman of Jones Lang LaSalle Americas.
Roger and his wife Marianne reside in Dallas. Staubach serves on the board of directors of Jones Lang LaSalle, AMR Corporation and Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and was the Chairman of the Host Committee for Super Bowl XLV. He and Marianne participate in many community and charitable activities and can be found cheering for their grandchildren at their various sporting events.
