The specter of fentanyl has cast a long shadow over America, leaving countless families to navigate the overwhelming grief of losing loved ones to this potent and often stealthy killer. Today, we sit down with Tom and Stephanie Quehl, two such warriors in the battle against this epidemic, who share the heartrending narrative of their son Jack's vibrant life and its untimely end due to a fentanyl-laced recreational drug. As we journey through Jack's memories, from his triumphs in the classroom, his travels abroad, to the unimaginable night that altered their lives forever, the Quehls' courage and resolve shine through, offering a powerful testament to the human spirit.
Throughout our discussion, the Quehls reveal the unvarnished truth behind the headlines, the personal toll of the crisis, and the crucial conversations we must start having about drug safety. They introduce us to the Jack Quehl Foundation, their proactive leap into transforming their own agony into a force for education and prevention. By establishing initiatives such as scholarships and education kits that promote Jack's passions for travel and learning, they honor his legacy while working tirelessly to safeguard others. This episode is a clarion call to all who hear it – to join forces, to speak out, and to take action.
We close with a look at the pressing need for community involvement and the galvanizing effect of sharing stories, just as the Quehls have shared Jack's. Their message resonates with an urgency that cannot be ignored: fentanyl is a crisis that touches us all, from the bright-eyed college student to the well-established professional. By wearing a "Do it for Jack" shirt, by listening, by learning, we each can contribute to the fight against this epidemic, ensuring that Jack's legacy is not one of tragedy, but one of hope and change for the future.
