I had the privilege of meeting Todd Galganov in my radio office yesterday. Todd is the father of Jesse Galganov who mysteriously disappeared in Peru in 2017. Todd is a magnanimous gentleman who cares deeply about his son. But he also cares about other young people travelling abroad. As such, he has launched a website as a tribute to Jesse entitled http://www.jesseprotected.com
The site is designed to focus on missing persons – prevention, awareness and support. The mission statement is as follows:
The website is fascinating because it includes travel advice and advisories as well as a safety, emergency amd and preparation checklist. There is also an education fund in honour of Jesse that will support children in the community. And Jesse safety kit products including a GPS unit and the suggestion of downloading a geolocation app for your phone.
Todd is going through this difficult process by focusing his energy on helping others; a noble mission. I believe he finds solace in wanting to make sure that this does not happen to any other family. He is a fine human being and we as a community have to step up to the plate and support him. It’s not only our moral obligation; it’s the right thing to do.
