OUR CO-FOUNDERS

Jesse Alex and Lamar Johnson Jr. turned their pain of not having fathers growing up into "Dear Fathers", the premier media platform for black fatherhood. While Jesse does not yet have children, Lamar is a father of two beautiful girls. Jesse also helps co-host our podcast that interviews celebrity fathers.
