Remembering & celebrating Jason Statts of Savannah

Friday, September 17th, 2021

Jason Statts 2021 fest Savannah SCAD

Jason Statts of Savannah died Sept. 17 at Hospice Savannah.

Jason Statts, a 1996 SCAD graduate, was seriously wounded when an armed robber shot him in the neck on June 28, 2008, causing irreparable damage to Statts’ spinal column. Statts was a well-known and beloved professional graphic designer and local musician.

For years, Friends of Jason Statts have held an annual Savannah benefit to help subsidize medical care that Statts, a quadriplegic as a result of the shooting, requires.

This year the 12th Annual Statts Fest will be a celebration of Jason’s life 3-7PM Oct. 10 2021 at Starland Yard in Savannah. Learn more here.

There will be live music from Joe Nelson and James Pittman, Damon and the Sh*tkickers, and Bottles & Cans. There will also be food trucks, a raffle and Statts merchandise for sale. The celebration of life event will feature remarks by dear friends, a moment of remembrance and a slideshow of photos of Jason throughout the years.

Donations will be accepted at the door with a suggested donation of $10+/person. All money raised will go to Jason’s end of life care and outstanding medical bills.

The brainchild of longtime peers (through Statts’ many associations as a 1996 alumnus of SCAD, a professional art director, illustrator, and local musician), the inaugural Friends of Statts event was held at The Jinx in 2009. Over the years FOS has rallied in various venues and formats, but the essence is always the same: On this occasion in Savannah, we’re all Friends of Statts.

Listening to Those Rejecting the Vaccine – Special Online Session on Sep. 27

Friday, September 10th, 2021

Healthy Savannah

Listening to Those Rejecting the Vaccine – Special Session, Mon. Sep. 27, 6:30PM
An online conversation to hear concerns about vaccine acceptance from Savannah area citizens who are not vaccinated.

Healthy Savannah and YMCA of Coastal Georgia will hold a special virtual “Listening Session” on Monday, Sep. 27 to hear from those who are not accepting the COVID-19 vaccine. This effort, along with an initiative to train 65 community advocates beginning in October, is part of a focus on COVID-19 vaccine education, awareness and acceptance, particularly in Savannah’s Black and Hispanic communities.

Funded by a supplemental grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the program is intended to broaden the initiatives of the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) grant.

The online listening session will provide a “safe space” platform for those who are not accepting the vaccine to voice their thoughts, concerns and questions. The event is scheduled for 6:30PM Mon. Sept. 27. Those wishing to attend should RSVP to elsie@healthysavannah.org. A link will be sent to those who RSVP.

Healthy Savannah and the YMCA of Coastal Georgia team members are also hoping this virtual listening session, along with three held earlier in the summer, will help identify potential community advocates. Neighborhood leaders, church leaders and community organizers are encouraged to apply.

Virtual training sessions for the advocate program will begin October 2 with the ultimate goal of creating community-acceptable approaches for improving vaccination availability, accessibility, and confidence. Utilizing their background, experiences, interests and skillsets, the advocates will be trained to speak to and learn from the community by meeting with community and faith-based organizations as well as local business owners.

In addition to the $500 they’ll receive for completing the program, the advocates will have the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills, learn about health advocacy, and add to their resumes.

Training in small groups of about 10 each will get underway beginning Oct. 2 with the ultimate goal of creating community-acceptable approaches for improving vaccination availability, accessibility, and confidence.

To register for the Sep. 27 listening and info session, apply to become a community advocate or learn more, please visit https://healthysavannah.org/community-advocate-program/ or email elsei@healthysavannah.org.
