#07 A Message of Hope for Our Veterans- Jake Schick, Executive Director of 22Kill

“Through all my trials and tribulation I’ve learned from controversy comes character, but which way you take that character is entirely up to you,” said Schick. “You can take the high road or the low road. Without question this life is worth living. You get one shot, [so] make the most of it. It gets better. You’re going to make it. You don’t have to suffer alone.”

Jake Schick’s story will humble you, enlighten you and hopefully inspire you. What began as an “ordinary day at the office” quickly turned bad as he encountered a life-threatening bomb while on duty in Iraq. Jake kept his life but his body would never be the same after that fateful day. Now the executive director of the nonprofit, 22Kill, He has triumphantly used his own traumatic experience to shine light on one the deadliest killers of our veterans: suicide.

“22KILL works to raise awareness to the suicide epidemic that is plaguing our country, and educate the public on mental health issues such as PTS. 22KILL also serves as a resource for veterans, and continues to build on its network of like-minded organizations to be able to connect veterans with programs and services in their local area. Funds raised through merchandise sales and donations are used to support partnered organizations who offer programs focusing on veteran empowerment, mental health treatment, and therapy/counseling for veterans and their families.”
