The Yellow Jacket Project

On April 22nd 2014, we lost someone that spread light, joy, and happiness to the entire community that surrounded him- Eric Medoff. He made such a lasting impression on everyone he met that we will never forget...and we will also never forget the signature bold yellow jacket that he always wore.

The yellow jacket is a perfect remembrance of Eric because he was bright, warm, goofy, and so incredibly unique. When walking around the community in his bold yellow jacket, he stood out like a ray of sunshine- and he couldn't help but radiate his good nature and the amazing person that he was. He spread warmth and joy through his amazing gift of speaking with others and truly empathizing with them.

In his name, we are raising money for his favorite charity, the Greater Boston Food Bank ( in order to keep spreading his warmth and light to others.

Making a donation to this fund is a small way that you can continue to LLEM: Live Like Eric Medoff.
