Jan Murchison


Jan’s son James was killed on May 18, 2008. He was 16 years old. Jan says he loved to dance, eat, and make people laugh. He was out with friends on a Saturday night and got stabbed while breaking up a gang fight, trying to help a friend. Jan now works at The Center for Hope, a community center that serves as a refuge from street crime for 11-21 year-olds.
