LIVE LIKE JACK. A local charitable organization, "Live Like Jack" in 2018 sought to establish the first children's support groups serving youth who had lost a family member or loved one. Angie Hohmann, the executive director, had lost her son in 2014 from an undiagnosed congenital malformation. She had initially coped by writing about her experiences. She founded the organization to honor her son's memory.

Kindergarten through second-graders met from 6:00 p.m to 7:30 p.m. monthly on the first Monday of the month at RESOURCES UNITE at 1900 John F. Kennedy Road. Third through sixth-graders met from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the second Monday of the month. Each group met for ten months.
