Ezekiel Staples is CEO and Founder of zFit, a premier Bay Area fitness organization. He entered San Jose State University through their Summer Bridge Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a minor in African-American Studies. During his undergraduate career, he walked onto the football team and earned a scholarship after two years. Ezekiel was one of 324 student-athletes selected out of over 1,200 to participate in the NCAA Leadership Conference, which engages a diverse and dynamic representation of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and administrators to enrich student-athletes with invaluable leadership skills to use in their everyday life and at their respective campuses. 

Ezekiel was also deeply rooted in the Student Involvement department. He served in three Presidential roles, including Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, San Jose State’s National Pan-Hellenic Council, and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
