Preventing suicides with Tom and Ellen Harris
Play • 34 min
Tom and Ellen Harris are the founders and co-chairs of the Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation (JEHF) named in honor of their daughter, Jo.

Jo was valedictorian of her high school class, a National Merit Scholarship winner, a Stamps scholar at the University of Michigan, an athlete, musician, and most importantly a warm, friendly, compassionate young woman. The Harris family lost Jo to suicide on March 27, 2012.

Through their grief, the Harris family of North Richland Hills, Texas, decided to create the JEHF, which provides suicide prevention and education for children and adults, as well as depression research funding.

You can learn more about the JEHF at jordanharrisfoundation.org.

Raising Joy is part of Cook Children’s Health Care System’s Joy Campaign, a communications initiative aimed at preventing youth suicides. For more information about the Joy Campaign, visit cookchildrens.org/joy.
