Overview

Marlin Jackson is best known for intercepting Tom Brady in the 4th quarter of the AFC Championship Game in 2007 to send the Colts to Super Bowl XLI.  Yet, he found his calling after his playing days ended by helping low-income children fulfill their potential and the chance to grow up in a nice home.

Marlin grew up without his father and his mother battled addiction in the housing projects of NW Pennsylvania.  He survived by faith and a scholarship to play college football at Michigan.  He now wants to turn his NFL success into a mission helping kids in Indianapolis’ Shortridge HS neighborhood experience a good life.

Marlin’s first move was to establish a character building program for kids to overcome their circumstances.  Once his foundation was established to serve urban youth, he made his second move to advance free market strategies to defeat poverty.

Revive Property Group is providing home ownership opportunities for low-income families in the Mid North neighborhoods of Indianapolis.  To launch the business, the Near North Development Corporation has provided a contract for Revive to build two homes.  Sagamore Investments, LLC offers investors an opportunity to supply the line of credit necessary for Marlin to meet his up-front construction costs.

Marlin and his partner have invested $80,000+ to supply Revive Construction of their own capital to initiate the operating capital line.  Revive owns the two lots in the Crown Hill neighborhood and they have two contracts from the NEAR North Development Corporation to build homes on those properties.  The two single-family home build contracts are valued at $365,014.
