Stephanie and Tom Quehl


Jack Quehl was successful in almost everything he did. Sports, academics, friends. On September 20, 2021, a decision to use a drug laced with fentanyl ended Jack’s life. Stephanie and Tom Quehl talk about their son’s life, his tragic passing, and lessons they learned about fentanyl poisoning. The Jack Quehl Foundation’s mission is to educate communities about the threat of fentanyl poisoning. More than 100,000 individuals lost their lives last year to a synthetic opioid overdose in the United States. Stephanie and Tom Quehl can be reached at https://www.doitforjack.org. If you want to know what you can do locally, get involved, support prevention activities, call or email legislators, ask your local schools what they are doing to educate the students, and, most of all, talk to your children.
