Thank-you so much Haley. You and Ana were the first of my High School Ambassadors. It warms my heart to know that I have had a positive impact in your life and the lives of others; but just as importantly, you have been a blessing in my life as well. Haley Braswell is a Junior at Apopka High School in Apopka, Fl. She is one of 4- High School Ambassadors in our schools representing PECC and encouraging confident and responsible choices in her friends everyday!

It has been five years since I have known Jamie, as both, a close friend and a fine colleague at work. Jamie is one of the most caring and dedicated people I've ever known. Her passion and drive for what she believes in speaks volumes about her. Her love for her son and the great loss she experienced is her driving force to speak to children, teenagers and parents so no one will ever have to experience the heartache and pain Jamie and her family experienced with the loss of Justin. Jamie is a compassionate and hardworking human being with perseverance and ambition. It is people like Jamie who make a difference.

Ive known ms jamie since last year over summer. I wrote her on facebook about bcomming one of her high school ambassitors. and she told me what she did and how i could become one. She told me her story and what happend and it broke my heart. I say shes a strong women and has made a wonderful thing happen with kids an there choices. She has changed the way i think about things and what not. Ever since i became a high school ammbasitor i can help kids make the best decision there life. I would not want to see anyone go thru what ms jamie or i did. Ms jamie has made me think positive things about my daddy. ms jamie is a wonderful lady and she makes changes happen.

I met Jamie online several years ago...we were both attending the Women's Conference in Long Beach. We were going there to heard Patrick Swayze's wife give a talk about grielf. She never made it, but Jamie was just such a positive influence during my time of grief. She's an amazing inspiration to so many people.

Children often listen to others more than they listen to their own parents. Jamie McWilliams' compelling personal story captures the minds and understanding of young adults and shows them them the deadly consequences of poor decisions. Jamie has turned a very tragic event in her life into a positive lesson for young adults, and these young adults listen. It is amazing!

Jamie has turned an unimaginable tragedy into a program that is saving lives! I was fortunate enough to sit in on one of her recent visits to a local high school. Before PECC, there wasn't an organization that focused on speaking to teenagers in their schools and presenting the harsh reality of making poor decisions. These kids listen to her, she is able to reach out to them! She is able to create a running dialogue with them that lasts longer than their four years in high school. More schools need a program like this, all year long!

This organization is a very well organized and thought out group. The founder is a wonderful individual who has helped the lives of many in her and out of her community. Jamie the founder does great presentations at the local schools to help students understand that the choices they make in a second can change their lives and the lives of others forever. I have personaly worked with this organization and love the impact and relationships that are built. The story of her son is truly heart fet and I will never forget the call when I received mine and only hope she continues to educate others on how one brief chice can truely change the lives of so many. Jamie is an amazing woman who has helped numerous many students with the healing process as well for those who can relate to her story of a lost loved one. She has also had a new law pass in honor of her son which countless time and efforts to have processed and become law.
