Jon Kitna has an athlete son Jalen Kitna who is a quarterback for Floria Gators in NCAA Football. Jon Kitna has four children with his wife, Jennifer.

The former NFL quarterback Jon has four children, all of whom are into football. Two have already marked their presence in collegiate football, while the remaining are on the verge of becoming professional players.

His son Jalen got a contract with the Florida Gators in May 2020, although he didn't start college until 2021. And he made his NCAA football debut on October 2022 against Eastern Washington as a redshirt freshman. 

The young athlete made an impressive start to his collegiate career with eight completions for 152 yards and one touchdown in his debut game against the Washington boys. 

On November 26 against rival 16 Flordia State, Jalen came to replace Anthony Richardson as he was forced to come off as his helmet fell. However, the Gators lost the game 38-45 as No. 16 Florida came victorious after losing three previous encounters with the Gators.

Jon Kitna Son Jalen Kitna Was Born In A Football Family

Jon Kitna son Jalen Kitna was born in a family of football tradition on March 22, 2003 in Washington.

Jalen is a 19-year-old young quarterback following in his father's steps to be an NFL star.

Former NFL star Jon is a father and the biggest source of inspiration to his son Jalen Kitna. Jon, 50, played for Cincinnati Bengals when his wife Jennifer, Jalen's mother, gave birth to Jalen in 2003.

Jon Kitna, the former player for the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, successfully passed the torch of his legacy to his children as all of his sons are finding their ways with football. Jalen's two brothers, Jamison and Jordan, also play football.

Jalen's father was extraordinary that year, winning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year as he made a record for being the first-ever player to throw each team pass for a single season in NFL history. 

Besides, he grew up in Tacoma, Washington, alongside his siblings. He has five siblings altogether. His father, Jon, and mother, Jeniffer have four children, and they adopted two; thus, Jalen has three biological siblings and half-siblings.

Jon reached him and his other kids to play football since their childhood. As a football player playing at the top of his game in the NFL, he knew how to train and prepare one like him. Now all his kids playing play in quarterback position just like he did. 

Jalen Kitna Has Six Siblings

Jalen Kitna grew up in a large family with six siblings, five brothers, and a sister raised by his parents. 

His parents gave birth to four kids and adopted two children. Jalen's two adoptive brothers are Casey and Chris. Jalen's adoptive brothers are older than him and are married now. They even have kids of their own.

Jalen was only 17 years old when he became an uncle for the first time. Besides, his three biological siblings are all involved in football.

Jamison Kitna and Jordan Kitna, his brothers, are playing collegiate football while his sister Jada Kitna is not playing. However, she works at Arizona State University as a staff member of the football team.

Jordan is his elder brother who played at Lincoln High School as a quarterback in 2014. Similarly, his younger brother Jamison is just starting high school. He attends the same high school Jaren attended, Burleson High, in Burleson, Texas.

Although both of his brothers play football,  Jalen has progressed to a higher level than his brothers have, playing in NCAA football with the Florida Gators. Not to brag, but if one of three brothers were to follow their father's legacy to the NFL, that would undoubtedly be Jaren at the moment.

Jalen Kitna Height And Weight

Jalen Kitna stands at an impressive height of 6 feet and 4 inches (193 cm tall) and his body weight is 208 lbs.

He is taller than his father, Jon. The former Seattle Seahawks quarterback is 6 feet and 2 inches tall, which implies his son Jaren is two inches tall than him. Although some might say, two inches is not considerable, in a game like this, even a small increment helps.

On the other hand, Jaren is far less bulky than his father, who weighs 220 pounds. To put things into perspective, even his father is not on the level of NFL average of an NFL player.

According to American Sports Planet, the average weight of NFL players is 245 pounds. They have a muscular build and enormous weight, allowing them to stop players quickly and eventually prevent the opposition from scoring.
