About Deon Davis

My name is Deon Davis-Harris, I am the Founder and Executive Director of Not Just Hoops. I am a wife and a mother of two boys that I was blessed to bring into the world.  I am also fortunate to have four step children and seven grandchildren. I've been a resident of Bedford-Stuyvesant over 30 years.

I recently retired from New York City Transit and have worked for them for almost 35 years. I was a Budget Manager for the Department of Subways and my job was to prepare and monitor the yearly budget, request the hiring of personnel and act as a liaison in requesting resources needed to serve Transit commuters with the most efficient subway service.
