In memory of Jared High


Bullying  Depression  Bullycide
Jared Benjamin High
Born Sept. 23, 1985 - Died Sept. 29, 1998
By Suicide/Bullycide



It is believed that depression causes most teenage suicides, but this creates a new question - what causes the depression?  A person just doesn't wake up one morning with depression.  Psychologists believe that some people have a genetic tendency towards depression, some people develop depression because of environmental triggers, and some people can have both genetic and environmental triggers,  (See "Teen Depression and it's Causes")


Jared developed depression from bullying at school as well as an assault by a bully in school

The new term being used to describe this type of teen Suicide is,

"bullycide," a suicide caused from the effects of bullying.

As Jared's mom, I welcome you to my grief project, JaredStory.com.  You will find an abundance of stories about Jared, research concerning bullying, depression, suicide prevention and suicide, as well as some motherly advise to help those thinking about suicide or those who have been through bullying, depression and/or a loss by suicide.  There are pages with serious subject matter, as well as pages filled with laughter. ..

If you are studying bullying, (teen) depression and suicide, be sure to check out the advertisers on site.  By supporting the advertisers on JaredStory.com, you keep this website active on the web. 

If you have had thoughts of suicide, be sure and read, "Teenage Suicide - Been There, Done That" and if you are feeling down, be sure and read my favorite story about Jared, "The Skittles War," and make, (and eat) Jared's favorite cake, "Dirt Cake," which I call, "Worm Cake."  It will take you back to the happy moments in your own life and you will forget your troubles for a time.

Jared's loss filled our lives with grief, but the healing has come.  Our family has found hope in understanding Jared's purpose in life and in The Meaning of Life.   (Be sure and read "Commit Suicide, and go where?")  We were left behind with only memories of Jared, some good, some bad, but our healing journey goes on and will for the rest of our lives.

Lots of Love from Brenda  (Jared's mom)

Bullycide in America

Many have asked,

"What is Depression?"


Here is a PDF of a chapter

from my book,

"Bullycide in America",

that will give readers an

understanding of this

horrible problem

facing millions of

people every day.





This recording is from an

interview with Pasco School

 District investigators

 concerning the assault on

Jared High.  This is a

recording of a recording

and it isn't real clear,

but worth the download

effort.  Jared had a real

mellow voice.  Note:

If you have a slow load wav,

wait for it to load entirely

and then play from the start.

About 5 minutes long

"I went on a diet for

two weeks and all

I lost was 14 days"


"He who understands

interest collects it;

He who doesn't under-

stand interest, pays it!"


"Where you will be five years

from now will depend on the books

you read, what you listen to and

the people you associate with"


We must find the

answers to these

Three questions:


Where did I come from?


Why am I here? and


Where am I going

after this life?

"One man awake, awakens another.

The second awakens

his next door brother.


The three awake can rouse a town,

By turning the whole place

upside down.


The many awake can make such a fuss,

It finally awakens the rest of us.

One man up with dawn in his eyes,

Surely then multiplies."
