Jomita is an educational consultant and higher education administrator, and E’mar, a former Texas Rangers minor league pitcher turned high school and Select baseball coach and collegiate law enforcement officer. They married over fifteen years ago and built a life together based on a love of God, family, and baseball.
With a son rising through the ranks of Select baseball, they spend a lot of time at the field, on the road, and with lots of other baseball families. The families they have met is one of the most rewarding aspects of their Select baseball experience.
With her heart for children, love of all things college, and desire to make high-impact experiences accessible to low-income, first-generation youth, Jomita spends a lot of time thinking about the youth athletes that are missing out on the experience, competition, and exposure that Select baseball provides simply because they cannot afford to pay. E'mar is the ultimate philanthropist and when coaching youth Select and private school baseball, he lived in the gap that Move the Runner was created to bridge. This is where Move the Runner (MtR) began.
MtR exists to provide extraordinary opportunities to lower-income youth to explore their God-given talent by receiving financial support to play, train, or showcase that talent in the sport they love and access college coaching with an educational consultant who specializes in College Advising and Retention to carve out a path for them to attend college. Maybe even play ball when they get there!
