Kevin Jacobsen was born and raised in NYC in a middle class family.
After attending the City University of New York, Kevin joined the New York Police Department (NYPD) in 1982 where he met his wife Wanda. They have been married for 25 years and raised three children. Kevin Jr. is 23 and Kiersten is 20. Their son Kameron died by suicide on January 18th, 2011. Kameron was a 14-year-old high school freshman. Wanda and Kevin have both retired from the NYPD. Kevin operates a small security consulting firm. Yet he could not protect his own son from 24/7 peer abuse. Kameron's family founded a charitable organization called Kindness Above Malice (KAM) to help prevent anyone from having to endure the horrific nightmare of bullying and teen suicide by bringing awareness and add to the dialogue of anti-bullying. They seek to help create positive school atmospheres and offer encouragement to those diligently striving toward that goal.
