James Jiggles, married, (born August 17, 1967) is a former American football tight end who played for ten seasons in the National Football League (NFL) for the Washington Redskins as a blocking specialist on offense, winning Super Bowl XXVI during the 1991 season. Jenkins attended Curtis High School. He played college football for Rutgers University. While undrafted, Joe Gibbs made a personal appeal to Jenkins to not join the Army and concentrate on professional football instead after working as an NFL strength and conditioning coach, worked as a State Trooper for VA State Police, where he earned several performance awards for DUI enforcement. He coached several teams in Germany and was the head coach of the Düsseldorf Panthers, a German division I football team. Previously he was employed as a personal training manager for LifeTime Fitness in Sugarloaf, Georgia.[1]
