Celebrating Lives Saved from Suicide
and Learning from Lives Lost
One Life Lost Is One Too Many
Jonathan Lazarus: 1984 to 2013
Born on December 25th, John was a Christmas present to the world. He would lie under my baby grand piano and listen to me practice for hours. In third grade, John asked for drum lessons, and the rest is history. He worked as a teacher and as a performer of jazz, blues, rock, funk, metal...and even had a long-standing gig with a gospel church band! John was great with children, a chef, and a practitioner of Zen. He will always be loved and never be forgotten.
TreasureLives is an organization dedicated to suicide prevention and mental health awareness. We host a YouTube channel which broadcasts approved testimonies of people saved from suicide, as well as memorials of those lost. Click here for information on how to submit your video.
TreasureLives also has a store! All products and services in the TreasureLives Store promote mental wellness. They are designed to comfort, inspire, educate, and increase esteem among individuals and communities. Tangible goods are handmade and are enhanced by personal touches such as initials, symbols, and birthstones. At TreasureLives, we learn from the past and celebrate the future. We recognize the innate beauty in humanity, life, art, and you.
TreasureLives is working to obtain non-profit status. This will make us eligible for various funding sources. Once funded, our vision includes the development of a mental health awareness curriculum from grade school through college. We also hope to provide mental health advocacy for seniors, veterans, and those with disabilities.
Please join us as we work to destigmatize mental illness and save lives.
“It is much easier to save a life today than to grieve one tomorrow.”
John was my brother in his actions and spirit, and for that I will be forever grateful.
