Vanessa Sapp, Co-Chair

Vanessa Sapp and her husband, Jason lost their son, Jason “Wes” Sapp on April 7, 2016 at the age of 21. Vanessa became involved with another mother, who lost her son (her son’s friend and classmate) the day before her son and their local pastor (who had conducted numerous funerals for ODs) and they organized Sneads Ferry’s H.O.P.E., working to make a difference in their community and to fight the drug epidemic.  Vanessa is looking forward to working with other NC parents who have experienced a similar loss on a state wide level in hopes to see change and save lives! We are the voice of our children! You can contact Vanessa @
