Alive Hospice is grateful to Titans center Ben Jones for supporting our grief support services, which include grief camps for kids. Jones has quickly established himself as both a philanthropist and a role model here in Nashville.

He recently explained his motivation to give back to a Titans reporter, "I lost my dad at 10, so that is why we picked the grief counseling, to give kids who have lost a loved one, a grandparent, a mom or dad, or brother, support. It sends them to camps to show them how to deal with that. I dealt with mine through sports...Not everybody has that, and it gives those kids a way to cope with it.”

“It is not a perfect life for anybody,” Jones said. “I know I had my struggles growing up through injuries and losing my father, and I had people step in and help me, and they were great role models for me. The least I can do is help other people, especially kids.”
