About Jill's Ride for Hope — A Message from Polly and Rob Naber

We lost our daughter Jill to suicide during her freshman year at LGHS. Jill was a vibrant, talented young girl, just 15 years old. She was distraught when an embarrassing picture of herself was sent electronically and placed on an internet site. Cyber-bullying and other pressures intensified her feelings of despair, and on March 15, 2009, she took her own life. After Jill’s death, a non-profit organization named CASSY, Counseling and Support Services for Youth, was embedded in Los Gatos High School. CASSY quickly became a heavily utilized resource at LGHS, helping students, faculty, and families through pressures and difficulties, all free of charge. CASSY's mission since 2009 has been “to de-stigmatize mental health services and make supporting students' social and emotional well-being the norm in our local schools."

We, and many others, greatly appreciate the services CASSY provides at LGHS. Thank you for supporting CASSY and Jill’s Ride for Hope in memory of our daughter Jillian Bailey Naber.
