The Mosley roots go back in history over 150 years on Staten Island. His Dad, Glemby, played in the Negro League for the New York Black Yankees against Jackie Robinson, and his mother, Lois, is a respected author of one of the historic Richmond Town’s best-selling books, “Sandy Ground Memoirs”. The book is about the Mosley ancestors being the first African American settlers on Staten Island, post slavery. Gerry followed the tradition of excellence his mother and father developed and became the first athlete of the College of Staten Island to complete a 4-year sports program. Mosley’s record speaks for itself. Countless letters of gratitude on his behalf are sent to every program Gerry is associated with.
Mosley is always ready to give back. The Children’s Aid Society, The Special Olympics, Challenged Adults, Unity Games, School Safety and the Parks Department are only some of the organizations he provides his services to. The call to help young people with disabilities and other problems extends through the entire Mosley family. His brother Garret and his sister Gloria McCombs run various children’s programs on Staten Island. Mosley is considered a “World Changer” to those close to him. He has a unique gift of being able to see the winner in every child and young adult.
