My name is Jacque Ecuyer. I am a 47 year old father of three boys and grandfather of one. Originally from Albany, NY, I have been in sales for over 20 years and have run my own fundraising organization for 3 years. I created the foundation to help raise awareness for a wide spectrum of causes including mental health. This has morphed into something bigger than I imagined as I have added an anti-bullying campaign and conscious men’s group to the fold.
I am cat-walking for NAMI because I have suffered with depression and survived two suicide attempts. I believe the status of mental health awareness is overlooked and I will do anything I can to help change that.
I have two favorite quotes:
“When you let go of your fears, you touch your soul.”
“The manifestation of positivity comes from within yourself.”
