As an advocate for the missing, I have referred family members to, The Jason Project, since 2006. Often, family members have questions, as do I. Ms. Kelly Murphy goes above and beyond to help everyone she can, answering questions, providing referrals, and researching on behalf of the missing. She seems to be available nearly twenty four hours a day. I don't know how she does it. From the ashes of the most painful of tragedies, her dear son having gone missing, she and The Jason Project, arose to help and support families of the missing. One day, I may ask this most excellent organization if I might have the privilege of volunteering for their cause.

Project Jason has opened my eyes to missing persons. It has showed me that people will never forget those who disappear no matter how long they are gone. It has taught me that we all need to care about each other. It also has shown me that these people are neglected in our society and that more needs to be done to bring them home. Thank you Jason's Project.
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
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.
