It was the Cambridge Youth Conference and Jeff had been invited to be their Keynote Speaker. The focus of the conference was on social emotional learning, career development and motivation.

Jeff was introduced by two beautiful twin sisters who were Juniors. Along with their older sister and younger brother, the four siblings tragically lost their dad two years ago to suicide. Their family created the organization “Up With Life” to raise money to help schools and families learn more about suicide awareness and prevention. Their family had donated half of the cost to bring Jeff to Cambridge.

Through his own personal stories, Jeff made the audience laugh and he brought some of them to tears. “It was an emotional roller coaster”, several teens told us after the presentation.
