Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer
Jamie’s life was directly impacted, for the first time, in 2007, when the father of her oldest daughter took his own life. In January 2016, yet again, Jamie experienced this agonizing pain, when she lost her mother to suicide. The overwhelming conflicting emotions she encountered afterwards inspired her to get involved with her community in order to help prevent other families from experiencing this pain. It also motivated her to become an advocate for those who are afraid to speak up for themselves, because of the unnecessary and insensitive reaction our society has to those who struggle with unseen internal battles. The death of her mother impacted her life in so many ways, but most importantly, she began to realize that helping others cope with the loss of a loved one to suicide became a part of her healing process.
