Jo Jo White (jumping, mid 1970s)

Biography

American professional basketball player. As an amateur, he played basketball at the University of Kansas and represented the U.S. men's basketball team during the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. As a professional, he is best known for his ten-year stint with the Boston Celtics of the NBA, where he led the team towards two NBA championships and set a franchise record of 488 consecutive games played.

White played for Boston Celtics (1969-1979), Golden State Warriors (1979–1980) and Kansas City Kings (1980–1981). He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015.

White was born with six older brothers and sisters. He married twice, secondly to Deborah White and previously to Estelle Bowser.

In 2010, White underwent a procedure to remove a tumour on the back of his brain. To assist his recovery, his attorney elicited memories from White and authored a subsequent biography Make it Count that was released in 2012. White died in Boston on 16 January 2018, aged 71, from complications of his dementia, specifically pneumonia, which was brought on when he had a benign brain tumour removed.
