Meet Your New USTA Kansas Digital Assistant
Jerod Fox joins USTA Kansas as a Digital Assistant. Fox has worked as the Digital Assistant for USTA Heart of America for the past nine months and is excited to begin work within his childhood district.
Currently enrolled in master's courses at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Fox also works in the Roos’ Athletic Communications department. Additionally, he is currently interning with the Stephanie Waterman Foundation in Kansas City.
Raised in Newton, Kansas, he attended Hastings College in Nebraska, where he played tennis and received a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting and political science.
Fox started playing tennis competitively in the seventh grade, falling in love with the sport immediately. During his high school years, Newton finished top-five in the KSHSAA 5A State Tournament twice. While he was at Hastings, the Broncos qualified to the NAIA National Tournament three times.
“I look forward to expanding my role in the tennis community,” Fox said. “I’ve been a member of the USTA for many years and am thrilled at the opportunity to give back.”
He currently serves as the Sports Information Director for all the Kansas City Roos’ NCAA Division I athletic programs. A majority of Fox’s experience comes from live sporting events. He has commentated volleyball and basketball games at the NAIA National Championship level, as well as being behind the scenes for hundreds of sports broadcasts.
When not under quarantine, Fox enjoys spending time with friends, be it playing pick-up basketball, watching a big game or playing UNO. He loves being back in Newton to see his family and especially enjoys watching his little brother’s baseball games and tennis tournaments.
