Biography

​Goldmine

  • Lee says he doesn’t let a day go by without giving credit to his mother, ShaRon, for teaching him to always work hard and strive for more. “My biggest motivation is my mom and working hard for her,” said Lee. After moving in with his mother in high school, he and his two sisters relied on their mother to play the role of both parents. Lee says he couldn’t have asked for more from her as a child. “She got me to this point. I work as hard as I can every day to make her proud.” After receiving a scholarship to play football at Kansas State University, ShaRon never let her son settle, pushing him to excel on the field and in the classroom as a business major. “I am a believer that if you want something, you have to work and sacrifice to get it,” said ShaRon. “When I watch Elijah now and see how much he has grown as a football player and as a person, it makes it all worth it.”
  • During the 2019 offseason, members of the 49ers took park in the Second Annual Picnic on the Field, located on the Levi’s Stadium field. Lee and his teammates spent the day taking pictures with fans, who enjoyed music, food and games in support of the 49ers Foundation. The foundation, in conjunction with NFL Huddle for 100, partnered with Amazon to fill 1,000 backpacks full of school supplies. Fans and players joined together to assemble the packs, which were distributed throughout the community to children in need.
