20 years ago today, November 1st 1999, Walter Payton passed away at the age of 45. His death sent shock waves throughout the world of sports, but his legacy is intact and lives on through his son, Jarrett and daughter Brittany. I've watched JP grow up from the 12-year-old who gave the Hall of Fame induction speech for his father in 1993, to his time at the University of Miami (2004 MVP of the Orange Bowl) to his stint in the NFL to becoming an entrepreneur and father, and now as the afternoon sports anchor on WGN TV in Chicago. Its a very powerful and provocative conversation with Jarrett Payton as he shares his memories and moments of his dad-Sweetness.
