I learned of Project Jason from a friend who frequently passed on information about missing people, on Facebook and Myspace, via Project Jason, as well as other information that would be helpful to someone who had a missing person in their family. At first I thought it was a bit annoying, until my wife got the call that her niece was missing, and her sister didn't know where to turn. Enter Project Jason. They are truly a Godsend when you feel like the whole world is falling apart around you and no one else can help. Thank you to my friend Kathy for always posting those links, and thank you to Kelly Jolkowski and Project Jason for all the help they gave the family.

Project Jason does a remarkable job for the missing. As a former America's Most Wanted producer who's become close to many cases (one in particular), I am grateful for Project Jason and their dedication to the missing. It takes a special kind of heart and dedication to spend one's life helping victims and their family members. Project Jason is to be commended for their outreach and assistance. They provide a service that's literally life-saving.

After being misinformed and misrepresented by LVMPD during the early period of my son's missing person case (Trevor Morse 5/6/07) I turned to the internet. The first and foremost was Kelly J at Project Jason, Kelly provided a shoulder, advice ,and contacts and I'll forever be grateful. Though it has been 5 long/short years with still no answers.

I have known the founder for many years. I used to work with Kelly and recall clearly the day her son went missing. Her strength, knowledge and continued effort for the cause have helped so many families. Project Jason brings attention and hope for families with adult loved ones missing. I think it is amazing!

Our family has lived the nightmere of "missing". This organization has reached out to so many families suffering this nightmere. Kelly has communicated with me several times and given me words of encouragement, hope and spiritual leadership. They fill the "void" for families who are stuck in this nightmere and I can think of no one who does it better. I am personally grateful for the support and I know that if I need anything...I can send an email and will aways get a response. God Bless this organization and know the "missing" are never forgotten as long as we have them supporting families.

Project Jason gives help, hope, and a voice to the families of the missing. They have helped change lives in ways they probably don't even realize. Because of Project Jason, I have become active in spreading awareness of missing persons, something I never would have done if I hadn't learned of them. Project Jason is DEFINITELY a life-changing and hope-affirming group that deserves to be recognized, honored, and most importantly, SHARED, so that they can continue to help those who need it most.

I've had the chance to do some writing for and about Project Jason and have come to know Kelly through emails and phone calls. I've never gone through what she and so many others have gone through and I hope I never do. But that doesn't stop me from caring and wanting to help when possible. And it doesn't stop me from feeling their pain and anguish at a missing loved one.

I met Kelly Jolkowski through the Project Jason website approximately a year ago as my nephew, Ben Roseland disappeared from Clinton, Iowa at the age of nineteen on February 9th, 2008. Kelly has helped guide me through so many different facets of having a missing loved one. One of our first conversations she stayed up very late to help me submit Ben's story in the trucking magazine Truck Job Seekers with the wonderful "18 Wheel Angels"featuring Ben's story. Kelly's organization has also assisted me in many different steps of organizing fund raisers, public awareness, and SAR procedures. I am SURE I am leaving out many other things this great organizations has assisted my family in, those were just to name a few. I would advise anyone who has a missing loved one to contact Project Jason as it has been a Godsend to me and Kelly, it's leading angel. Thanks so much for your time. Very Sincerely, Julie Connell, Aunt to Benjamin Malvin Roseland

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

becoming acquainted with Kelly Jolkowski of Project Jason who as assisted me NON STOP when ever I had a concern, question, or just needed to talk. My nephew is missing and she has been there for me since I first contacted her.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing, just assist them with more funding.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I don't want to HAVE to be affiliated with anything concerning missing persons as I ONLY became aware of this organization because my nephew is missing. I have enjoyed Kelly's personality and her many ideas to assist my family.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

ONLY met Kelly through the internet, but she is WONDERFUL!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

FIND a way to have Law Enforcement really "dig" into the missing teens, not just to have L.E. assume that the kids are "runaways. Maybe install some kind of AMBER alert specifically for teens??? DON'T know for sure any thing specific.

Ways to make it better...

CHANGE NOTHING, just assist them with more funding.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

NOTHING, just more funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am so sorry for those who have lost loved ones and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

In February 2004, my daughter Elsha M. Rivera, missing from Fort Worth Texas, became another victim and one of the thousands who go missing every year in America. Do you realize that every 30 seconds a person goes missing? If you do the math that's 120 per hour alone! WOW…..we never really see the numbers nor do we ever pay attention unless its one of our own. I myself am guilty of never taking the time too see how we are so victimized in this country that we call the " Land of The Free ". But are we? Elsha had 4 children ranging from age 8 months to 9 years when she also became a victim of the missing. The years have passed and the now the children are 6, 9, 10, and 14, and they can't figure out why no one has brought their mother home. As Elsha's mother, I have spent the last 5 years with severe depression, feelings of guilt, endless and long stretches of not sleeping, and even suffering from Alopecia, hair loss caused by stress. You see when you have a missing child, spouse, or loved one of any kind and you have no answers, you feel helpless and all alone. At least I did! I took myself away from the entire world and I buried myself in a world where no one could touch or reach me, not even myself, for I became my own worst enemy. I hated everyone, I hated the person(s) responsible for taking my little girl away from me and her children, and I hated the police department for not doing enough. I thought my little girl was the only missing person out there. But most of all, I hated myself each and everyday because I wasn't capable of searching for her financially or mentally. When Project Jason found me I think I don't even remember. I slowly corresponded with them. Kelly Jolkowski emailed me from time to time and she consoled me. She spoke of her own missing child, so then I knew of her pain and heartache, but most of all I knew she understood. So, when one day Kelly emailed me about the 1st annual retreat for the families of missing persons being held in Nebraska ! I wasn't able to afford to attend since I was out of work and raising 4 children, plus, I was not even sure if my car would make it! I also wondered what I would do with the children since I didn’t have anyone here in Missouri to care for them if I did go. I spoke to the children about it and they told me I should go. Miraculously, a sponsor came forward for me, and care for the children, and all I had to do was get there. Once again, I spoke to the children and they said “Mom, you need to go.” I was even more afraid the day I left for the long drive as I made several excuses as to why I shouldn't go. You see, I didn't know what to expect…..but I was so glad I did because the Keys to Healing Retreat was like being on a cloud for me. It was like the weight of the earth had just been lifted off my shoulders. I saw others there just like me, others who had been through the same pain, the same loss and the same fears. Other people who knew what to say and how to say it without being afraid to say all the wrong things to those who hadn't felt the loss and pain of a missing loved one. When you loose a loved one by death, you have one sense of pain, but you also have closure. I knew that feeling since I had other children killed, and I met that fear and I was able to lay it to rest, but this was different in a way I could never truly explain. The conversations, the people, and the gift of what each and everyone of us had to share was like I had awoken from a very long sleep. I felt alive and I could pinch myself and feel it. I even looked in the mirror for the first time in a very longtime and what I saw was a person who wanted to live. I felt rebirth, a second chance to come back to life after attending the retreat. I can now communicate with the children, where before I only existed with them we can sit down and eat meals together before I fed them and then locked myself away in my room. We can even pray together when before I was angry at my heavenly Father for allowing me to feel pain and loss, helplessness and guilt. It's been 5 years, soon to be 6 in February 2010, but one day I will find my Elsha, and I honestly believe this in my heart, soul and mind! So I ask if you read this, please help, and look deep into your heart and soul, but remember that this too could happen to you or someone you know and love. Elizabeth Rivera, mother of Elsha M. Rivera, Missing Since 2004 From Fort Worth Texas

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many ways but with donations and from the public Project Jason could provide the "Keys to Healing" that we are in need of in order to move on so we can deal with our missing! Most of us still have other children and lifes daily issues to deal with!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The opportunity to meet other families who have experienced the very same loss as myself! But it is so sad that we have had to meet one another under these circumstances.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and sympathetic to all our needs, they offered guidance as we seeked answers on how we were to go on in life without our missing loved ones! May they recieve many blessings for all there hard work!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I was the Mother of an Endangered Missing Son who had been missing for many years. I had begun to lose hope until one night I discovered Project Jason on the Internet. I sent Project Jason an e-mail and within 30 minutes, the Founder contacted me. After suffering emotionally alone for many years, I had now discovered there was reason to have hope. With the Founder's advice, strong support and creativity, the wheels were set in motion to find my son. Project Jason worked proactively and I learned to be proactive as a result. A family found my missing son and saw his Poster on Project Jason. I was then contacted with the golden news. On Mother's Day 2009, after 12 years, my son was returned home to me. I am now the Mother of a Found Son because of Project Jason.

The Great!
