Join us for Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2017, November 2-4, to honor ’Canes legend Jon Beason, ’06, as the 2017 Grand Marshal!

As a member of the University of Miami football team from 2003 to 2006, Beason recorded 187 tackles, 3.5 quarterback sacks and one interception. Beason was drafted in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, where he began a nine year NFL career that included three Pro Bowl selections, and being recognized as a First-team All-Pro in 2008 and a Second-team All-Pro in 2009.

Beason continues to be a proud supporter of the University of Miami, having recently donated $250,000 toward construction of the Carol Soffer Football Indoor Practice Facility. In recognition of his generous gift, the new indoor practice facility will include the Jon Beason Defensive Team Meeting Room.
