December 12, 2017: J.J. Hanson


The board of directors of the New York Men’s Leadership Forum is deeply grieved to share the announcement of the passing of J.J. Hanson: a son, husband, father, and tireless advocate for the dignity of the human person in his work against assisted suicide.

J.J. was unable to join us as a speaker in December due to growing health complications, and passed away on Saturday, December 30, 2017. We are grateful for his enduring spirit, witness, and testimony. He will be sorely missed.

Below, you’ll find a final testimony from J.J. and his wife, Kristen, taped three weeks prior to his passing.
