About Project Jason
Before June 13th, 2001, we were just an ordinary family living a peaceful, happy existence. We 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.

Living Life in the Not-Knowing Video Presentation
Project Jason is pleased to present our video “Living Life in the Not-Knowing.” This video was written and narrated by Kelly Murphy, President and Founder of Project Jason. It provides a glimpse into the day in the life of a family with a missing loved one. Kelly shares how ordinary moments are never the same when faced with this tragedy. Photos of her missing son, Jason, the Project Jason namesake, are shown from his birth to young adulthood as the not-so-ordinary day unfolds.
Project Jason, a 501 c 3 nonprofit, was founded in the aftermath of Jason’s disappearance and the revelation that there were few organizations to help, especially in the case of a missing adult. Jason remains among the missing, but his legacy and namesake organization goes on, helping thousands of families in his name and generous spirit.
