Jaz was incredibly helpful and supportive when we were searching for my 14 year old niece who had gone missing (we later learned she had been abducted by a sexual predator) from her high school. She was in constant contact with ideas and connections and support. She even arranged for a local print shop to accept community donations for missing child poster printing and coordinated volunteers to post them throughout the city. Her support was incredible and so very much appreciative at a time when we as a family were so worried and scared we could barely function. She’s just amazing!
Being inundated (literally like drinking from a fire hose) with emotions, things that need to be done, and well-meaning people asking questions and wanting constant updates while you're living in a nightmare….that cannot be imagined unless you've lived it. Hearing what the scenarios are for what might have happened to your loved one and trying to put them out of your mind, that can't be imagined. Having law enforcement be dismissive of your situation because there's no signs of foul play, that can't be imagined. So many things you can't even imagine, only because you can't even begin to know all the heart wrenching things you'd have to imagine in a situation like this.
And then..there are people like Jaz Girlson. Without knowing me or my family, she stepped into our darkest time and brought light, and calm, and practical advice, and action, and her platform, and phone calls to see how I was doing or let me vent. You are an amazing lady Jaz, our family is forever grateful to you! Much Love!
Thank you so much for all the effort you put into finding me. My heart is full with LOVE and support in part because of you. My mom and I could never thank you enough.
