Jesse Cooper, Board Member Bio

I was lucky enough to meet Hudson as a baby. My husband, Jason, had been good friends with Wes, Hudson’s dad, since high school. Jason and I moved to Los Angeles for several years shortly after Hudson was born, but we always loved getting Hudson updates or grabbing dinner with him when we were back in town. We were huge fans of Hudson because he was so sweet, smart, and polite. His obsession with hedgehogs was particularly fascinating! 


It was so amazing seeing Hudson grow up, which made it all the more heartbreaking to lose him. It still does not and will never feel understandable to lose such an incredible person like this.  My hope is that Project Hud;Son can help bring awareness to this issue and, with the help of our friends and family, prevent even one more teen from making similar decisions.
