Foundation set up in honor of HV teen suicide victim

A foundation has been set up by the Orange County family of a Monroe-Woodbury High School teen who committed suicide in order to hopefully prevent future instances of bullying-related suicides and to curb bullying among kids in general.

The Kindness Above Malice, or KAM, foundation was set up to also pay tribute to 14-year-old Kameron Jacobsen, who took his own life after his mother says that he endured bullying both at school and online.

The group says that donations will be passed along to community programs in local school districts in the Monroe-Woodbury area, to be used for mentoring programs and scholarships for students who have helped bring an anti-bullying message to their school For more information on the group, .
