In January 2017, Allison, JCMF Executive Director, sat down with Grayson Moore to interview him about his time as a teen through his young adult years. He shares his story publicly for the first time of living through suicide, loss and grief. At the age of 14, Grayson Moore found his sister, Jennifer Claire Moore, after a successful suicide attempt. The video below features the major events of his story.

“Grayson has shared so much with me prior to this interview, but in bits and pieces. To have the opportunity to sit down and interview him was truly an experience for both of us. For the first time, I heard about all his experiences from beginning to end. He had so much to share, and we talked for hours. I hope this video helps adults relate to youth who have experienced suicide and leaves everyone hopeful for a full life even after great loss.”

“My world changed on the day my husband and I lost our daughter, Jennifer. Words can’t describe the feeling of losing a child – it’s an experience no parent should ever have to face. In the midst of our devastation, I knew there was still hope and wanted to make something positive out of this negative situation – that was the start of the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation.

In 1998, the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation was established to help Baldwin County Schools create a support group among high school students. These proven programs provide a critical lifeline to help students cope with the day-to-day pressures facing our youth.

I wish the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation had existed to help my daughter. We want any child who needs support to be able to obtain it. We know our foundation can be a blessing, offering hope to those in search of it.

The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation is doing great things in our community and we are making ambitious plans to expand our programs and services. We see our foundation making a difference in the lives of our youth as we continue to provide hope and a future for those in search of help. Thank you for your interest in the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation. Remember, there’s always hope!”
