Goody is a SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education) certified educational presentation about suicide, survivors guilt, and the aftermath that lasts a lifetime. At 20 years old in 1999, Jonathan Goodstein took his own life while attending Arizona State University. Adapted from an off broadway solo show, written by Jason Einaugler, Einaugler weaves in storytelling and videos to tell the tragedy of losing his best friend and learning to cope with it. He shares life saving techniques and self evaluation tools to stay safe and healthy.
Jason Einaugler is a teacher with over 20 years of experience in NYC, Long Island and Westchester County. In addition to teaching, he coaches 3 sports and takes pride in being a positive impact in the lives of kids of all ages. Einaugler has been working with mental health and suicide prevention organizations since 1999. He produces an annual fundraiser for suicide prevention that funds the Jonathan Goodstein Scholarship Award at Hewlett High School, in which he also presents the scholarship award each year to a graduating senior who is voted on by both faculty and peers. In 2019, Einaugler wrote and performed Goody, a solo, off Broadway show in Manhattan. In partnership with the JED Foundation and SAME Here Global, Goody has transformed into a SAVE certified educational presentation that Einaugler brings to high schools and colleges across the US.
