I am a retired High School Spanish teacher and massage therapist. I joined SOMS when Alex started the group. I joined in support for her. I have not experienced a death through murder but I did lose my brother suddenly 25 1/2 yrs ago. This experience changed my life as one could imagine.
My weaknesses include being technologically challenged. ( this is my fourth attempt for my intro because I keep losing it in cyberspace! ) I also have ADD and I can have trouble staying on track!
I am a team player and I take my responsibilities seriously. I take criticism well and learn from my mistakes. My philosophy is there are always lessons to be learned.so be grateful to learn them!
I am a great researcher and I have given a list of podcasts to Alex to help us promote our cause of going from victims, survivors to thrive. I love to brainstorm and share ideas and philosophies on life and the future of SOMS. I also have experience of being on two boards of directors for non-profit organizations.
My name is Jess and I’m from Massachusetts. My brother Cameron passed away in September 2020 and after it happened I felt so lost until I found SOMS. I wanted to be able to help other people that have to go through this to make sure people know they are not alone. Being a part of this community is very comforting and I am very fortunate to work alongside my other amazing board members as we try to make positive differences in the future for victims’ family’s and victims alike. My brother means the world to me and everything I am doing now and in the future is for him.
