Project Jeremy is an organization that originated at Frenship ISD to inform teens and adults about suicide and to help prevent it. The project is named after Ayers’s son Jeremy, who was a student at Frenship. Ayers, a children’s minister at Family Christian Family Church, lost Jeremy to suicide over 15 years ago. Now he shares his story with other teenagers and their parents in hopes of preventing more teenagers from committing suicide.

Ayers said that it is very important for parents to look for warning signs, such as a sudden change in their children’s behavior and that strong family support is vital to help children who may be contemplating suicide.
