A Tribute to Jarrid Wilson

Jarrid Wilson was a devoted father and husband, powerful speaker, and gifted writer who died on September 9th, the eve of World Suicide Prevention Day.

He struggled publicly with mental health, and his willingness to break the silence on this often taboo issue gave many the courage they needed to survive the dark nights of their soul. He even founded an organization (Anthem of Hope) to provide resources to those who wrestle with depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Countless people are alive today because of his words and work. 

Jarrid is survived by his wife Juli and their two precious children. Because Jarrid was the primary income earner for their household, this gofundme has been setup to help provide for them during this period of grief. In the coming days, they will need to cover a funeral, which are very expensive. But as Juli and the kids discern what is next for their family, they will also need to pay for basic necessities, health care, counseling, etc. 

A gift of any size would be appreciated more than you can possibly know. All donations will go directly to Juli Wilson.
