About the Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation

The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation (The JEHF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity and was created after the 2012 suicide of Jordan Harris, a remarkable young woman from North Richland Hills, Texas, who was in her senior year at the University of Michigan.  Jordan was high school valedictorian, National Merit Scholarship winner, a tireless volunteer, and a compassionate champion of those less fortunate.  Jordan suffered from a brief bout of depression and ended her life without warning, leaving her devastated family and friends to wonder if they could have done more to save her life.  Jordan’s loved ones discovered there were no local programs available in Tarrant County providing evidence-based suicide prevention training and education.  The JEHF was founded in 2014 to undertake that role in Tarrant County. The JEHF’s founding board wanted to ensure an extra step to help remove the stigma of mental illness and incorporated a depression research funding component into the mission.  The services provided by The JEHF are unduplicated in Tarrant County.
