The Boomer Esiason Foundation was created to fund research to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a disease of the respiratory and digestive systems. The Foundation also provides education and awareness of cystic fibrosis to provide higher quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis.

While at a 1993 Jets mini-camp, Esiason was notified that his two-year-old son, Gunnar, had to be taken to the hospital with breathing difficulties. Soon after, Gunnar was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. A devastated Boomer Esiason soon after formed the foundation, a charity.

Now 17, Gunnar is an extremely active teenager who undergoes daily treatments and takes medication. He is a quarterback on his school's football team (Friends Academy) In Locust Valley, New York.

Soon after Esiason formed the Foundation he formed a partnership with John Sawyer, a co-founder of the Bengals and the chairman of Sawyer Industries to form a company that would sell what came to be called Boomer's Products to Fight Cystic Fibrosis. The top-selling item is Boomers BBQ Sauce, an award-winning Texas-style sauce with all proceeds going to cystic fibrosis research.

Esiason lives in Manhasset, New York, with his wife Cheryl, their son, Gunnar, and daughter Sydney.
