In memory of his son, John spearheaded the Vermont Bully Prevention bill which was signed into law (ACT 117) in May 2004 and only a few months after Ryan’s death. He also successfully led the passage of the law pertaining to mandatory suicide prevention education in public schools (ACT 114) in April 2006. His son’s story and his accomplishments in response to this tragedy have been told world-wide by print, radio and TV. His son’s website is www.Ryansstory.org.
