Laurence Malone
Born April 4th, 1957

Larry Malone, a.k.a. Professor Jet, is the iconic super fan of the New York Jets. Easily recognizable by his “professorial” outfit on game day, “The Professor” is well known by fellow Jets fans for his humorous and warm personality. Professor Jet willingly poses for selfies and group photos with countless fans, all while soaking in the atmosphere and cheering on his beloved Jets at MetLife Stadium.

On game days, Professor Jet tailgates with family, friends and Jets supporters in the MetLife Stadium parking lot. He prepares delicious recipes from his book, “Cooking for the Utility Maximizer: One Economist’s Guide to the Kitchen.” The Professor always enjoys visiting the tailgates of other Jets fans to interact and relax before leading their cheers during the game.

Professor Jet has accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to create more interaction with New York Jets fans. The Professor posts a range of content across these social media platforms, including: pre and post-game analysis, livestream videos, and comedic posts. Social media provides another way for fans to connect with Professor Jet away from MetLife Stadium.
