Hello! My name is Jessica Storch, I am the founder of theGrief22, an organization that supports individuals who are traveling a grief journey.

My grief journey began early in life, when I was 4 my 2-year-old brother drowned. I remember that day like it just happened, I was so sad. At 18, I lost my grandfather, at 19 my stepfather who was like a father to me. In January 2005, my grandmother lost a long brutal fight with cancer. She was my favorite person and to watch her suffer was absolutely awful. A few years later, my aunt also lost a battle with cancer. Then in 2020 my son was ripped from our lives in a car accident.

My work with grief is truly motivated by the loss of my son, in losing him I gained strength, resilience, and grace to embrace my own grief. I believe that to be a gift he gave me, and I now dedicate myself to helping others embrace their grief.

To say grief has shaped my life is probably an understatement, however, I am here! Not only am I here, I am living, I am happy, I am embracing every ounce of my grief and I am thriving. My story is that of turning tragedy into triumph.
