Jace Waters lost his life to an heroin overdose May 2, 2016. He struggled with an opioid addiction for 12 years. His use of drugs began in his senior year of high school with a sport injury to his back. Jace went to college but had to drop out his Junior year due to his drug use. He struggled with jobs, relationships, and his own feelings of failure. Jace was arrested several times and entered several treatment centers to help with his addiction. In one of the treatment centers, Jace turned his life back over to Jesus and said that freedom is only found in God. Jace shared his trust in God with others in jail and rehabs. He shared that he wanted to help others with addiction by sharing his story of hope, take an active part in helping those struggling with addiction get help, and establishing transitional living houses. The Foundation is determined to do just that.
