Basketball is in her blood. Her father, Willie, Sr., played at Stephen F. Austin, and her brother, Willie, Jr. played at Houston.
With Moore’s background in Finance, Mewelde says “I have to take my hat off to my wife. She’s into our financial stuff.”
We were made for each other. What she knows and how she was raised. It’s crazy because her maiden name was Moore, too.
A long time ago I was Like, ‘God, let me have somebody I can be with. Send me a sign.’ When somebody’s got your last name…I’ve got a great wife.
Mewelde says the couple also helps others with managing money. As if pro-football and working in real estate were not enough to keep this entrepreneurial power-couple busy, they plan to franchise health foods.
Mewelde and Tymeka have a daughter, Jalyn Chantelle. Both support youth education through the Mewelde Moore Knowledge First Foundation. They like to relax with a good movie.
