Project Jason has helped me and my family through one of the worst times in our lives. Thanks to Kelly Jowlkoski & Duane Bowers I have found the strength to keep on with my own life. My grandfather, Floyd Price went missing over 5 years ago from Diamondhead, Mississippi.

This organization was a Godsend to me during a time of crisis when my brother, John Spira, went missing. I found support, advice, assistance and caring from people who know what it's like to experience such a life altering event. Kelly and others involved in Project Jason were able to assist me with public dissemintion of my brother's story in a variety of unique and creative ways and the organization continues to be for me a resource and a huge source of continued support and ideas. Kelly and those involved in this non profit, helped a horrible situation to be just a little easier and I'm so grateful for all they do for families with missing loved ones. Stephanie McNeil

When no one else seemed to be listening, Project Jason, not only gave me an ear but guided me in the direction that I needed. My only child, my daughter, Ashley Nicole Martin Mauldin, vanished mysteriously,reported to be in the Gulf of Mexico, 14 mi. from New Port Richey, Fl. Because my daughter was 28 and not a minor there is virtually no help in funding a search. Project Jason at least placed Ashley on a web site and made a downloadable poster. Kelly's information is invaluable. Kelly gave me a light when I felt my candle was going out. Charlotte Martin Callis, mother of Ashley Mauldin

The Great!

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

dealing with my missing daughter. I wish that I would have known about the organization from the onset of Ashley's disappearance. I found Project Jason while internet surfing.

help those that need help finding their missing loved ones. Money is available for minors but once you reach 19 you are not eligible for help. I am a single mother, a nurse, I don't have enough money to pay those that I need to hire to help me.

ProjectJason.org and Kelly Jolkowski was a Godsend to me and my family. Back in January 2009 my beloved Brother, Robert was a missing person. It was and still is a horrific feeling of a loved one missing and not knowing what happened but with the help of the team of volunteers with ProjectJason.org it lessened the turmoil for us and ProjectJason organization educated us as to what steps to take and follow in order to locate our loved one. My brother has since been found (unfortunately deceased) but this non-profit organization could use all the help of volunteers and/or donations that they can get because they give all the help they can give. Please endorse ProjectJason.org and help bring light to others trauma.

My brother has been missing for two and a half years now. Our mother has Alzheimer's and there was no way in the world our brother would miss placing a phone call to Mom. He saw Mom every day when he was in Illinois. He called Mom every day when he was in California, until one day the phone calls stopped. My older sister and I have been searching for our brother ever since Feb of 2007. We never ever thought this could happen to us, but it has. We pray that we find our brother safe and sound. For the families that have never gone through having a loved one missing, it is the most horrible, grueling, haunting, tearful thing to experience. The not knowing is the worst part of it. Not knowing if he's on the streets, if someone did something to him, if he is still alive, etc. You can't imagine what goes through one's mind thinking what could have happened to our loved one. Since I heard about Project Jason, Kelly Jolkowski, mother of Jason, has been my friend. She helps me pick myself back up off the ground and to keep my focus on staying hopeful and not giving up and that I not feel guilt about what happened. Without Kelly and Project Jason, I felt so alone. I felt as if no one understood what it was like to go through this nightmare. I cry on Kelly's shoulder and even though her own son, Jason, is still missing, she never lets me down. Kelly is always there for us and helps me stay on course. God bless you, Kelly, and the whole Project Jason Organization. Without you, my sister and I would not know how to cope with this nor would we be as knowledgeable on what steps to take to progress in our search.

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

My sister and I have some place to turn in our turmoil.

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

The kindest I have ever talked with.

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

keep helping families like ours and continue to grow and do so much for everyone going through this ordeal.

Ways to make it better...

It can't be better. I have never been helped in this way before.

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

Funding. The organization needs more people to understand missing persons cases and how they can help families like ours.

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

The more funding Project Jason receives, the more families like mine will find the help and support we need to get through this.

Project Jason offers an unparalleled amount of services for families of the missing. Many people who run across this organization think it must be run by a sizable team because of how much Project Jason accomplishes. Few realize they are not funded enough for even the founder to serve Project Jason full time -- most work is done by President Kelly Jolkowski in the hours not spent at her full-time job. In my nearly two years as a volunteer, I have been impressed by Project Jason's creativity. They are always thinking of ways to support families of the missing in ways no one has ever thought of before. I have been just as impressed with the high ethical standard to which Kelly holds herself and Project Jason volunteers. I have seen many times examples of both integrity and discretion. Finally, Kelly is probably the most knowledgeable person in this cause when it comes to wide and deep knowledge. Partly due to her extensive training and partly due to her astuteness, she is familiar with the legal, emotional, procedural and tactical elements associated with missing persons of all ages.

The Great!

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

Seeing the painstaking processes Kelly Jolkowski goes through to create new programs, and fine-tune them to be the best they can be. And she never stops -- the ideas just keep pouring in!

Ways to make it better...

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

Change it right back to what it is now (but with more funding!).

More feedback...

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

Keen understanding of the families' needs. New programs tend to be spot-on in meeting a specific need for families of the missing. The Keys to Healing Retreat is a perfect example. Mostly I have enjoyed working with an organization with utmost integrity.

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

The other volunteers I have met are excellent -- they are smart and compassionate.

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

Hire Kelly and others on a full-time basis. If Project Jason had a staff, there is absolutely no end to the creative new programs that could be implemented to help the families of the missing, and to find the answers they seek.

Ways to make it better...

My experience has been very positive, so I don't believe it could be any better.

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

Funding, funding, funding. Having Kelly and a staff working for Project Jason full-time would mean an exponential amount of additional assistance to families of the missing. The best organization in the cause would just get better.

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

I'm really honored to be able to help the families of the missing, and I am very proud to be associated with Project Jason in my efforts.

The emotional roller coaster ride that the families of a missing love one experience is crippling, emotionally, physically, and mentally. My daughter, Jennifer Wilkerson, has been missing since July 13, 2004, from Lubbock, Texas. From day one of this nightmare, Kelly and her professional staff has always been just a phone call or e-mail away with loving and encouraging advice. Through tears, rant and ravings, hopelessness, guilt, fear, anger, and disbelief Kelly is quick to get me back on track. Because of Project Jason, I know there is a network of angels keeping a constant eye out for our loved ones.

June 26, 2007 my entire life changed, my 26 year old son disappeared from Jacksonville, FL. This began a new chapter that altered the path of our family's life completely. We didn't know where to turn for guidance, and stumbled across the Project Jason website, where we were able to find help on every aspect of searching for a loved one. The family forum, and Healing Harbor, provided by Project Jason for families of the missing has been a haven for me when I feel alone. There I can communicate with others in similar situations knowing they understand, and also ask questions of a counselor with amazing insight into what we go through. Thank you Kelly and Project Jason, for all that you offer us the families with Missing Loved Ones!

the Keys to Healing Retreat 09, Every aspect of the retreat had impact on me personally. I took away from it tools that will help me to not only cope, but to move forward with more strength, health and armed with knowledge.

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

bring light to the National Crisis that our country is experiencing and very few know about, that approximately 800,000 people per year are reported Missing in the U.S.,sons or daughters, husbands or wives, moms or dads, friends, co-workers.

Kelly and Project Jason organization have been wonderful! My Mother (Mary Lee Grobe) has been missing from Poplar Bluff, MO for almost six years now. Missouri had NOTHING to help the families of the missing when this occured. We were lost on what we should do; how we could get media attention; how we could get law enforcment to investigate? Kelly helped keep her name out; provided so many suggestions and was there for us when the stresses were too intense. We love her and all the volunteers at Project Jason for the hours of selfless dedication to be the voice of the missing. Sincerely Joyce & Chris Caldwell

The Great!
