In memory of James Maday

Created by Family Of James Maday

James Maday

My son died on September 19th, 2016. He was a Navy veteran, a Cryptologist. A sweet, loving human, he came back from Iraq another person. He struggled with demons. Our family tried everything we could think of to help him. Ironically, when he told us a few months ago he had finally stopped drinking -- we had no idea he had replaced it with "huffing" computer duster. He died with a can in his hand. My heart is broken by the fact I couldn't change his fate. Love does not conquer all.

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
