This year marks 20 years since Chicago Bears great, Walter Payton was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

In 1993, his son Jarrett was just 13 years old when his father received the honor. Now, after a football career himself, Jarrett Payton is a sports talk radio host and a small businessman.

A year and a half ago, he partnered with Chicago's own Argus Brewery to create the Jarrett Payton All-Americans Wheat Ale. JP's beer is the most popular product by Argus and its sales are up 40% from last year.

Payton is also the founder of Jarrett Payton Foundation which is committed to positively impacting the lives of children and adolescents ? physically, emotionally, and psychologically ? by creating and providing programs that present them with a wide variety of opportunities specifically designed to develop their leadership skills and enrich their lives.

Payton is also an active member of the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation. Payton talks about how his father's legacy lives on 14 years after his untimely death.
