My Story

Jacob Birdwell became an organ and tissue donor, on the third day of his senior year, at 17 years old, in August of 2011. We miss him deeply! Knowing he lives on through others who have received the gifts he left behind gives us hope that he will always be remembered. As a Donor Family, we love supporting The Legacy of Hope by attending events to meet donor families and recipients, and support organ and tissue donation in our community. Jacob’s words of wisdom to everyone who asked him why he chose to be an organ donor “I won’t need anything, when I’m gone, let someone have it!” “You can’t take it with you!’ We miss our #33 everyday!!
