In memory of Jared Jared's Heart of Success, Inc

I became a survivor on July 11, 2015, when my only son, Jared Brown, was killed by a stray bullet by someone that should have never had his hands on a gun. Jared died two weeks before his 24th birthday. It has affected our entire family. Holidays and his birthday are a constant reminder that it’s reality and we will never see him again. His presence is missed tremendously every day! Now I advocate along with Moms Demand Action and Everytown For Gun Safety.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
