FOOTBALL MOM Meet Zach Wilson's mom, Lisa

Who is Zach Wilson’s mother Lisa?

Quarterback Zach Wilson has been making headlines ever since he was drafted by the NFL. But behind every successful man is a strong woman, and in Zach’s case, it’s his mother, Lisa Neeleman Wilson, who has been gaining attention herself.

Lisa is not just a regular football mom, she is a social media influencer and health enthusiast with a growing following of 159,000 on Instagram. She shares wellness recipes, fitness routines, and retreats on her page, lifeaccording2lisa. Lisa is also the proud owner of the clothing line Live Life Legit.

In addition to her successful career as an influencer, Lisa is a mother of six children, with Zach being one of her sons. She has three more sons and two daughters who she supports wholeheartedly just like she does with Zach.

Lisa’s husband, Mike Wilson, whom she married on March 8, 1997, is also very involved in Zach’s NFL journey. The couple can often be seen together at Jets games, supporting their son and cheering him on.

After Zach was drafted by the New York Jets in 2021, Lisa went viral on Twitter, with many fans mistaking her for Zach’s girlfriend instead of his mom. The internet was abuzz with compliments for Lisa, with one fan even calling her the “real MVP of the draft.”

However, Lisa recently found herself in the spotlight again when Zach’s ex-girlfriend, Abbey Gile, accused him of cheating on her with one of Lisa’s friends. Despite these claims, Lisa remained unbothered and urged her followers to spread positivity rather than negativity.

As for Zach, the 24-year-old quarterback was born in Draper, Utah, and was the second overall pick by the Jets in the 2021 NFL Draft. After three seasons with the Jets, Zach was recently traded to the Denver Broncos on April 22, 2024, marking a new chapter in his football career.

During his time with the Jets, Zach had his fair share of ups and downs on the field, but now he’s looking forward to making a fresh start with the Broncos. And with a supportive family like Lisa and Mike by his side, there’s no doubt that Zach will continue to shine in the NFL.
