Higgins makes 40 under 40 list in Crain's.

Jets VP Matt Higgins was named one of the top 40 executives under 40 in New York by Crain's Magazine.

"People really like being around Matt," Jets owner Woody Johnson said in Crains. "You shouldn't underestimate the importance of that."

Higgins faced a big challenge last year when he beat cancer. "Other than wanting more time with my family," Higgins told Crains, "I discovered I had no great regret about how I had lived."
