PJ Benasillo

Intern

Born and raised in Staten Island, NY, PJ went on to attend the prestigious Regis High School before going to Colgate University. At Colgate University PJ had received his two Bachelors of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies and Political Science. While at Colgate PJ was a part of the mock trial team. Following Colgate, PJ attended the Fordham University School of Law.

PJ has been a significant advocate for individuals with disabilities, particularly those on the autism spectrum. While at Regis he created a program where students of Regis would attend The Rebecca School in Manhattan and would play a wide variety of sports with the kids to help develop social skills.

Prior to joining FFA, PJ held internships with prestigious organizations such as the Brooklyn Nets, Sony Music Group, and the Eastern District Court of New York. An avid sports fan from a young age (his first word was “Touchdown”), one of his earliest sports memories was attending the 2001 World Series, seeing former President George W. Bush throw out the first pitch. Since then his love for sports generally, but particularly for the New York Yankees, Brooklyn Nets, New Orleans Saints and Team Liquid, inspired him to pursue it professionally.
