Dave’s son was one of the 1st graders to escape while the gunman was in his classroom. His son chose to run while he was reloading his gun and ran a 1/3 of a mile to the firehouse to safety. He witnessed the death of his teacher Miss Soto and some of his classmates. His 4th grade daughter was across the hall locked in a small office during the shooting. His other two kids were in 5th grade at a different school on lockdown for the full day knowing about the events unfolding at Sandy Hook school. The events of Dec 14th 2012 forever changed my family and I. I know that more had to be done to help those who have been involved in traumatic events.
Dave brings to the Foundation knowledge and skills from prior work in non-profit and corporate operations, an extensive network of professionals supporting the design and operation of the Foundation, and deep, personal commitment to helping others toward recovery after crisis.
