JJ and Casey were best friends, always together having a good time and were like brothers. They always promised each other that they would never leave a brother behind and that promise held true till the end.  The night of May 26, 2016 is a day JJ states "Is the worst night of my life and my biggest regret".

JJ and Casey were at a high school graduation party where there was alcohol.  JJ and Casey were doing donuts in a field when the jeep tipped pinning Casey.  The 30-50 kids who was attending the party picked the jeep up off Casey and put the jeep back on all 4 tires then they all took off leaving JJ and Casey behind.  JJ tried desperately to save Casey's life, calling 911 and doing CPR for 9 minutes till medics (who happened to be JJ's mom) arrived but Casey's injuries were just too severe.  Not only did Casey die in the field that night, but a part of JJ died too and JJ kept his promise of never leaving a brother behind.
JJ was charged with OWI causing Casey's death and plead guilty taking full responsibility and was sentenced to serve time in the Indiana Department of Corrections. 

With so much tragedy and heartache that these two families have endured, they will be producing a public service announcement of JJ and Casey's story that night in hopes of preventing another person from making the same mistakes.  Our goal is to raise enough money to produce a professional video that can be sent into high schools around this country talking about his friendship with Casey and the worst decision of his life. JJ would like to discourage underage drinking and driving in hopes that his story will touch other kids his age and discourage them from making the same mistakes he did.

All proceeds will be used to produce a professional video and send copies to schools around the country. Any donations over that will be sent to Casey's parents in Casey's name.
