Melissa George - Former Jacksonville Jaguars Roar cheerleader

Alumni Cheerleaders found out what former Jacksonville Jaguars Roar cheerleader, Melissa George, is doing now after hanging up her poms in the NFL.

Melissa George was born and raised in Fleming Island, FL.  She started dancing at the young age of three and pursued her talent for 11 years at a studio, competing and performing with their competition team.  She then started cheerleading with her Jr. High School and High School where she served as the team’s captain.  In Melissa’s first year of college at University of North Florida, she was a cheerleader for the Ospreys until her spring semester when she first auditioned for the Jacksonville Jaguars Roar in 1999.  She continued cheering for the Jaguars until after the Super Bowl was held in Jacksonville on February 5, 2005.

During her six seasons, Melissa served as captain from 2002-2004.  Not only did she enjoy performing at home games, but also greatly enjoyed traveling the world representing the Roar.  Destinations include Mexico, Jamaica, Bahamas, and several locations throughout the United States.  Her fondest memories are from the Armed Forces Entertainment military tours that took her all across Egypt, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Greenland.

Aside from the Roar, Melissa graduated from college in 2002 with her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and has been successfully involved within the insurance industry since then.  She has also been contracted several times as a Sports and Entertainment Consultant where she has helped put on events such as the Snooper Bowl, Oscar De La Hoya Boxing Match, the Ernest Wilford Golf Classic, and several concerts including big names like Snoop Dogg, Gladys Knight, and Chaka Khan.  Since she stopped cheering, Melissa has been represented by Beyond the Field Marketing as a model and spokesperson and has appeared in numerous TV and print ads.  This is her second year as a member of the Sweethearts for Soldiers and she also takes great pleasure in being an officer for the Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Inc.  In her spare time she enjoys church and family events, sporting events, and working out.  Melissa welcomed a new addition to her family on June 2, 2008.  Her son Thomas was born in Jacksonville, FL and is her first child.
