Helping youth at risk

In March 2010, Jack Windeler, an 18-year-old first-year student at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., died by suicide. In the note he left for his parents, Eric and Sandra, he asked that others get the help he never asked for. Eric and Sandra set up the Jack Windeler Memorial Fund to help youth transition from their high school years to university or living on their own. Eric also made a video as a way to reach out to young people who may be suffering from depression and to those who may know someone who is.
