Giving back is the idea behind the global sporting brand, Pass The Roc. Its founder, Jersey City native
Jarrod Greene, is the CEO and founder of Pass The Roc, which had its national debut in 2003.
As Greene sat back during the interview in his Pass The Roc gear, he reflected upon his passion for wanting to be his own boss.
“I have such an entrepreneurial spirit about myself because my dad and mom were very instrumental in teaching me how to work when I was nine years old,” said Greene.
Greene never wanted to settle for the typical nine-to-five job. Although he held such jobs, they never sat too well with him.
“I never excelled well in the secular world because I always had a certain mentality and somehow it rubbed people the wrong way,” said Greene. “It always resulted in some type of reprimand, dismissal or not seeing eye to eye with someone.”
