Former Stampeder defensive back Jackie Kellogg is this week’s Home Heroes’ presented by Reliance Home Comfort. He will be signing autographs in the Fan Zone from 5 – 6 p.m. on the east side of McMahon before Thursday’s home-opener.
Kellogg first joined the Calgary Stampeders in 1995.
He left to pursue opportunities in the World League of American Football, the Arena Football and the XFL but eventually, he always found his way back to Calgary. The Tacoma, Wash., native had a late-career stint with the Edmonton Eskimos but again, he wound up rejoining the Stamps one last time in 2004.
Kellogg was a two-time West all-star with the Stamps and was a member of Calgary’s Grey Cup-championship team in 1998. His name remains in the Stamps record books as he ranks among the franchise’s all-time leaders with 21 interceptions and three picks returned for touchdown. Two of the pick-sixes came during the 2000 season and he also had two interception-return TDs with the Eskimos in 2001.
After the Eastern Washington University alum walked away from the game once and for all, he settled in Calgary and he and his wife Jodi have two children – Trey and Jazmyn. Trey has followed in his father’s football footsteps as last season he was a freshman receiver for the UBC Thunderbirds.
Jackie Kellogg is heavily involved with the Stampeders alumni, serving as that organization’s vice-president and chairing the alumni golf tournament. He also coaches minor football.
His post-football career has centred on the oil industry and he is currently a sales consultant for Fedmet Tubulars.
