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.

Behind the Scenes TreasureLives has begun the creation of our experiential mental wellness curriculum! Designed to assist people of all ages in identifying and expressing emotions, understanding and implementing boundaries and enhancing communication skills, each chapter of this product will be made available for download upon its completion. Also soon to come is the TreasureLives Store! We have prototypes of products which promote mental wellness and are designed to bring comfort and inspiration. At TreasureLives, we learn from the past and celebrate the future. We recognize the innate beauty in humanity, life, art, and you.
Once funded, our vision also includes locating and securing mental health services for seniors, veterans, low-income families, and those with disabilities. We also have a Facebook support group for Survivors of Suicide Attempts (SSA) which will open when we are able to staff moderators.

“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."
