Staff Eric Murphy He/him English Eric joined Jack.org because he was really excited by the opportunity to combine his writing and communications experience with Jack.org's amazing mission. Championing others with their mental health is a cause that's very close to his heart, and he immediately connected with Jack.org's youth-focused and upstream approach. As a Grant Writer, Eric works to kickstart and sustain meaningful relationships with the funders and grant makers that support Jack.org. Eric hopes we can all work towards a culture that accepts and celebrates differences, where there are no barriers preventing anyone from being their most authentic self. If Eric was an iconic TV or movie moment, he wishes he could say Gandalf riding over the hill at Helm's Deep to save the day in The Lord of the Rings, but if he’s being honest he’s not nearly that cool. More realistically, he’s probably Pippin asking about second breakfast or dropping the bucket down the well in the Mines of Moria.
