FOUNDER, KINDNESS ABOVE MALICE
Bullying has had a tragic effect on the Jacobsen family. In the course of one year, Wanda Jacobsen’s 14-year-old son Kameron took his own life after being relentlessly bullied and then she lost her husband in the wake of that tragedy.
Determined to help prevent other families enduring the same horrific nightmare, she has been a tireless and passionate advocate for bullying prevention measures in New York State and around the country.
She co-founded the anti-bullying charitable organization, Kindness Above Malice, and continues to use her voice to help raise awareness of the importance of safe schools and communities. She also is the proud parent of Kevin, Jr., 24, and Kiersten, 21.
