Jared’s Story 
Jared High was 12 years old when older students bullied him in his middle school.  The bullying came to a head when a well-known bully assaulted Jared inside his middle school gym.  Because of the bullying and the assault, Jared began to show signs of depression, which included lack of sleep and emotional outbursts. 

On the morning of September 29, 1998, just six days after his 13th birthday, Jared called his father at work to say good-bye.  While on the phone with him, Jared shot himself, dying instantly. 

As a healing project, Brenda began to write Jared’s story, which is now published as www.jaredstory.com.  Since 1999, JaredStory.com has attracted over a million visitors looking for information on bullying, depression, suicide and needing healing from the loss of a loved one. 

Brenda has now become a passionate crusader, a mom on a mission to stop school bullying and peer-abuse.  It is not uncommon to see Brenda doing email or on the phone talking about bullying as well as advising parents, students, teachers, state and federal lawmakers, media and community members about the emotional and physical dangers of bullying, which can lead to bullycide, (a suicide attributed to bullying). 

Producers and/or writers from Good Morning America, Dr. Phil Show, The John Walsh Show, The Larry Elders Show, Video Production Companies, Inside Edition, Jenny Jones Show, Black Entertainment Television, CNN, ABCnews.com, News Documentaries, and Newspapers all over the United States, are just some of the media who have interviewed Brenda for opinions and advice concerning bullying, depression, suicide and the new tragedy, "Bullycide." 

Jared’s story has been told on the radio, in magazines, including California’s Beach Cities Health District, Arizona Parenting, The American Association of Suicidology, Desert Paradise, and in numerous news articles.  Brenda has also published Internet Short Stories about JaredStory.com on several websites. 

Brenda is proud to be the lead writer and compiler of, "Bullycide in America: Moms Speak Out About the Bullying/Suicide Connection." 

Brenda has designed several websites and continues to work on JaredStory.com and BullyPolice.org in her spare time. 

  • http://www.JaredStory.com, which deals with bullying, depression, suicide and other issues.  JaredStory is very popular with teens who are looking for direction and advice for living as well as media research, as example, The Dr Phil Show, who found two quests to talk on bullying and suicide. 
  • http://www.BullyPolice.org - Reports and grades States on their anti bullying laws.  Bully Police USA posts current anti bullying laws, research, news, and support information for parents and/or anti bullying activists who are dealing with bullying in schools 
  • http://www.Bullycide.org – An expose’ book, Bullycide in America: Moms speak out about the bullying/suicide connection.
  • http://www.BullyPolice.com - Where Brenda's ebooks, offered for free, with over 1,600 pages of encyclopedia knowledge about bullying, can be found.
Getting anti bullying laws
Having been involved in politics since 1982, she leads by example. 

Brenda’s specialty is working to get anti bullying laws passed or revised.  She is proud of contributing to the passage of the Washington State Anti Bullying Law (www.bullypolice.org/wa_law.html) as well as influencing passage of laws in Oklahoma, Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Maine, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and a most special law, “Jared’s Law” in Idaho, named after her son Jared.   She also has worked to update bullying prevention laws and attended a signing in Idaho in April 2015.  In March 2015, Montana became the last state to get an anti bullying law - Bullying Prevention laws are now in all 50 states.  Brenda is proud of her state Bully Police volunteers who faithfully did what it takes to get all these laws passed.

As the Founder and Co-Director of the national organization, Bully Police USA, Inc., Brenda has written, “The Perfect Anti Bullying Law,” which is an excellent model for lawmakers to follow when they write their State anti bullying laws.  She teaches the importance of anti bullying laws and how to lobby, in teleconferences to educators, media, program directors and parents, many who have children suffering from bullying. 

  A philosophy to live by
Brenda lives her philosophy, which is; a woman filled with love is not content with blessing her family alone, but is anxious to bless the whole human race. 

Brenda lives in Pasco Washington with her husband Bill.  They have three grown children, Sonja, Jacob and Tara, and five grandsons.  She has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University.
