"He always seemed to be happy, he seemed like he had everything going for him," says his best friend Ron.
"Now that I look back on it, I realize that he had all the signs of depression and I just didn't know. He stayed up late, he didn't go to class, he slept all day."
Ron created the Jed Foundation and the U-Life Line Network to help young adults who are considering suicide.
"Every day you'd see someone on campus telling you how to have safe sex, but with suicide being the second leading cause of death among college students, you would assume that the university would do something to inform students about what the signs of depression are. We created U-LifeLine.net to try to help students deal with all of the stresses of life," Ron responds.
