Rep For Jesus is a minority and veteran-owned Christian clothing company. Rep For Jesus was created in 2020 by CEO, Jamal Byrd, with the purpose of spreading the gospel of Jesus through clothing. Jamal noticed there weren't many places that offered urban and stylish Christian clothing. Consequently, he believed his ideas would offer creative minds more ways to express their personality.
Jamal is a born again Christian who believes in the fundamental believer doctrine that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was resurrected three days later. He also acknowledges that we are saved by grace through faith. Jamal was raised in the church, but often found himself living like the world in his youth. After re-dedicating his life to God, Jamal has been wholeheartedly following God since 2017.
Jamal was raised in Tacoma, WA where he was excelled as a football and basketball star. His athletics earned him a football scholarship to the United States Air Force Academy where he graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in management. Upon graduation, Jamal served five years in the Air Force as an Acquisitions Officer. In 2020, Jamal was medically retired and began working as a defense contractor. He is now married to his beautiful wife Shaianne with a 1-year-old son (Malachi) and 9-year-old stepson (Derek). His family currently resides in California.
