Suicide remains the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24. The devestation of a suicide on the family, friends and community is heart breaking and long lasting. Jesse Lump, who at 17 took his own life, was my son's best friend and also part of our family. He was a wonderful young man and in his short life made the world a better place. The activities of this organization are critical! Education and suicide awareness lead to a better understanding of what the signs and causes of suicide are. The awarenenss component of suicide that is shared in local schools and civic organizations gives individuals, teachers, and the community the tools to make a positive difference in the lives of our youth. The Jesse Klump Memorial Scholarship Fund also makes continuing education possible for local high school seniors who want to make a differenc in this world!
