Meet our Founder


Meet Jimm,

Founder • CEO • Creative Director

Jimm is too humble to tell you that his personal story has helped save the lives of individuals across the globe by talking them away from the ledges of suicide.  He will only tell you that he simply wants to have an opportunity to personally share with those who struggle with suicide, the simple, yet powerful message, You Matter To Me.

Grounded in his faith, Jimm shares with others his personal story of how he found hope in the midst of his own perceived hopelessness, beyond his attempt at suicide as a senior in high school and his diagnosis with Bipolar Disorder at the age of 28.

In August of 2012, Jimm made a commitment to return to the familiar darkness he spent so many years running from.  This time, waiting ahead of him, was an opportunity!  Now armed with a passion for helping others, he offers a light hope for those struggling with depression, mental health challenges and suicide.

Jimm will tell you, “Not a single minute goes by that I’m not dedicated to my passion to be available to offer hope to those going through the same journey I went through and still go through.”

Jimm lives in San Diego, California with his wife of 22 years and manages his mental wellness and self-care through healthy lifestyle choices and physical activities like hiking, running, cycling, and various water activities.
