I have known Jon Gossett for a long time, we attended school together from the time we were pretty young. He's a good man with a great heart. Timing couldn't have been better when we got back in touch a couple years ago over social media, he reached out and showed support for a new song I was working on after having been gone from the music scene since 2008. At a point where I was trying to decide if I should follow my heart and dive back into pursuing my music, it was nice to hear someone say they thought it was awesome that I was still going after my dream.
It was not a surprise to learn that Jon had created the "Life's Worth Living Foundation" a place for people struggling with suicidal thoughts, as well as survivors of suicide, to come and have a forum to share their thoughts and struggles. He expressed that he felt something should be done to raise awareness and prevent this unspeakable sadness.
When Jon called me and told me about what had taken place in the Hunter Family's life and said he wanted to hold a benefit concert to raise funds to help them and asked if I would be open to being a part, I couldn't say yes fast enough!
