Aaron S.

Although the Aaron Schaffer Jensen Family Foundation (ASJFF) was officially organized as a 501 (c) (3) charity in March 2021, our work began ten years earlier. To be exact, it began on July 2, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. with the phone call: my only child had died of sudden cardiac arrest, at 37.

When Aaron died, every culturally sanctioned platitude you can think of was tossed my way:

At one point, I was even told, “Buck up Cathy. You are not the only person whose child has died.” While that was certainly true, I knew what the person really wanted to say was, “Shut up about your crazy experiences with the dead and accept that Aaron is gone.” But I couldn’t. Because he wasn’t. And he showed me repeatedly.

It took me many years to be able to understand that my experiences with the dead contradict neither science nor religion. They only contradict old scientific models and age-old religious misunderstandings.


Our premise: Believe nothing about death. Find out about it for yourself.

Our mission: to motivate YOU to acquire the truth that death is not a dead end.

If you want to acquire this truth for yourself, YOU must cross the abyss separating knowledge from belief. We hope to motivate you to do so by illuminating the solid bridge that already exists, painstakingly built over centuries by science and religion. To this end, our goals include being able to:

With your help (sharing the book, volunteering your time, and hosting Workshops and Public Events) many broken hearts and shattered minds have begun the hero’s journey to acquire the truth about death for themselves. We are succeeding with our mission. Slowly but surely. Family by Family.
The Aaron Schaffer Jensen Family Foundation is a volunteer organization, i.e. there are no paid staff. As a 501(c)(3) charity, your donations are not only greatly appreciated by the beneficiaries; they are also tax deductible.
