About Project Jason
Before June 13th, 2001, we were just an ordinary family living a peaceful, happy existence. My husband, Jim, and I worked outside the home, spent time with our two wonderful sons, attended Mass every Sunday, and enjoyed the company of family and friends. On that fateful Wednesday, our lives changed forever. Our family unit was brutally ripped apart when our oldest son, Jason, then age 19, disappeared without a trace from our driveway.

Project Jason Keys to Hope Program
Project Jason announces a new program that offers families of the missing individual websites to increase awareness of their missing loved ones. Keys to Hope will be available to all families registered for Project Jason services who do not currently have a website, Facebook page or other dedicated Internet presence for their missing family member.
Project Jason’s Keys to Hope sites provide family members of missing persons whom we serve a free space to share the stories of their missing loved ones with the world. Not every family has the means, know-how, or contacts to be able to create a web presence for their missing loved one. Read More…
