MEET HAPPY JACK
Happy Jack is Jack Nathan. Jack created HappyJacksWorld to raise awareness and fund access to mental health resources. Jack wrestled with anxiety and depression - he simply wanted to help other kids know that they were not alone. Jack left us suddenly and accidentally on 7/3/20 at the age of 19, due to fentanyl poisoning. He was a survivor of mental illness- not a victim.
Together we can make life better for kids like Jack. Please help us keep Jack’s legacy and mission alive.
Happy Jack Donations have been made to the following Foundations in Jack's memory and in our commitment to help all:
Active Minds, Child Mind Institute, Born this Way Foundation, Runway of Dreams, Riley's Dance, JaneStrong, Lean on Me, Denver University, American Cancer Society and Release Recovery Foundation.

Jack told me that he used to care what people thought of him, but he realized that it took too much energy and he'd much rather do what made him happy.
Jack's world was one with no judgement, unending love.. he showed many that it's okay not to be perfect, not to always be happy, to not take life too seriously and to be completely immersed in the present moment.
Jack defied social norms and created a world for himself where he could do what he loved and be successful that is something most people don't ever realize is possible.
Jack made me feel like I was the most extraordinary kid in the world.
We had plans for changing the world for kids like us. Jack was absolutely one in a million and I have never met anyone like him.
Jack repeated, "If you are bored, that is your own problem." That has helped me get out of the house.
Jack focused all his love and energy on the people that truly mattered to him and on what made him happy... the important things in life.
Jack is a soul that will live on forever. He changed my life and inspired me to live life to the fullest and never care what other people thought.
Jact was remarkable, incredible, compassionate, loving and real. He reminded everyone to just be happy and to embrace who you are unapologetically.
The legacy that Jack created will live on.
I've never seen someone so passionate or motivated to change the world while making their own brand and doing what they love.
Jack lives on through the brand he made for everyone who struggled like he did. He was selfless, goofy and real.
