Edward J. Feaster I was born and raised in Flint, MI, to wonderful parents who were married 50 years. My father is a retired school teacher, and ex-Marine. My mother was an evangelist, and most selfless person I’ve known — she is/was the biggest influence on me. She quit teaching school to raise our family, which include three older siblings. A high value was placed on Christ & education. I did not understand my spiritual self or purpose until after my mother passed in 2013. I now realize — at least a little — that my purpose is to be a blessing to others, a guardian to my family, and help other
individuals/communities in need. I survived a couple near death experiences, and sincerely believe that every single day is a gift! My motto is the Golden Rule, “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you…” Matthew 7:12.
As a father and spouse, my goal is to be the best I can be: to provide for, promote joy, an attitude of thankfulness, and hard-work. I am thankful for my spouse, Donna, who is the backbone of our household and handles much of our business as I put time into officiating, work, and school. We have a blended family which includes:
Alex - 15 year old high school sophomore
Joshua - 29 year old financial professional in Detroit
JuLondre - 30 year old planning to attend University of Miami law school this fall.
I would like to be fruitful and bless other individuals, families, and communities through my faith, officiating, and my work as an electrician.
As an official (and individual) — I love to learn. I am very thankful and fortunate to learn from, and be influenced by, some of the best current/former NFL officials: Carl Paganelli, John Parry, Bob Waggoner and Bill Carollo. I embrace new challenges, an
early-adapter of technology, and a self-disciplined hard worker. I thrive to be the best crew-mate I can be. My focus is player safety, administrative rules, and eliminate marginal calls. I am honored and blessed to be an ambassador for Christ and athletics.
