Ja Marr Chase parents are Toleah Chase and Jimmy Chase. Ja Marr is a wide receiver born and rasied in New Orleans Louisiana.
Chase setting NFL and Bengals franchise records is not surprising to Toleah and Jimmy. They have seen him do it in high school as well as college. He won the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship as a sophomore at LSU.

Ja Marr Chase Childhood Growing Up
Ja Marr mother Toleah and father Jimmy live in New Orleans. Before he landed in Cincinnati, Jimmy was a massive Saints fan.
Growing up, Ja Marr had so much energy and was very hyperactive. Jimmy and Toleah found themselves entirely drained by the end of the day. Jimmy signed him up for football in Gretna, hoping the young boy would fall asleep at night.
Soon after, everyone talked about Ja Marr, and his father pushed him hard. Things were not smooth between them during his teenage years, but Jimmy knew that football could potentially change their fortunes forever.
Chase went to LSU, and it was Jimmy's first choice.

Ja Marr Chase Mom Toleah
Toleah was born in Louisiana on May 1, 1971, to Climon Smith and Thais Woods Smith. She went to West Jefferson High School.
Chase got Toleah a new car after he got his first million dollars from his rookie contract. Not only that, but the wide receiver also paid off her house with the money.
Ja Marr told GQ that he bought a $65k black Maserati for her as Toleah was driving an Audi in bad shape. She was in absolute joy, making him roll his eyes.
He spent about 100k to pay off the mortgage on her house that the family had been living for years. The footballer ensured the bills were straight and the house was paid for so they had a family crib.
Toleah is still baffled that the young boy, full of hyperactive energy, is now a calm and collected person. She still prays for her every night and goes to every Bengals game.
