The Jason Foundation was started in 1997. It was after the suicide death of my youngest son, Jason. Jason was a 16-year old athlete, churchgoing, good kid. He was your average, everyday kid until July 16, 1997, when I went home and found that he had taken my .38 caliber pistol and placed it at the side of his head and pulled the trigger. I have people come up to me and ask how I felt about that situation and I tell them, I don't want anybody to ever feel that way again....
