Jane Clementi, CoFounder and CEO – She/Her/Hers

Jane Clementi co-founded the Tyler Clementi Foundation because she wants to make sure that our society learns the consequences of discrimination and bullying, as she learned all too personally through the loss of her son. A native of New Jersey and devoted mother of three sons, Jane speaks passionately to parents and community leaders about the need to not merely “accept” or “tolerate” children who come out as LGBTQ+, but to embrace them as wondrous creations of God. Jane speaks on the need for parents of LGBTQ+ children to come out and speak openly of the love they have for their children, and in doing so each one of us can impact the world around us and create accepting environments. Since losing Tyler, Jane’s spiritual journey has continued to carry and transform her in ways she never would have imagined. She left her church home for many years because she felt that while sitting in the pews of a church that condemned LGBTQ+ people she was herself a bystander to bullying. Jane leads an inspirational life through her unique experience which she shares with other parents and speaks passionately about the need to divorce the concept of “sin” from homosexuality. She has made difficult choices in an impossible situation and leads by example. She has spoken out in support of LGBTQ+ rights and the need for families and communities to embrace their LGBTQ+ populations. Jane has spoken before the U.S. Congressional HELP Committee, the National Cathedral, and numerous other faith communities, colleges, universities, high schools, and workplaces.

James Clementi, Mental Health Content Creator – He/Him/His

James Clementi is the oldest brother of Tyler Clementi. The loss of his brother was a life-altering event for James, and sent him on a path of activism for bullying prevention, suicide prevention, and LGBT rights. Like his brother Tyler, James is gay. The core part of his message is the equality of LGBT people in our society and the devastating consequences of bullying on our young people. Bullying that happens face-to-face and online through social media has become an epidemic among our youth. James is focused on reaching out to LGBT and vulnerable youth, using Tyler’s story as a tool to reinforce the inherent value of each life. Respect, love and equality are the key components of his message. James envisions a youth culture where kindness is cool, and respect is the norm. James has written about his experience for Out Magazine, spoken at events such as the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles’ First Annual Voice Awards as well as television programs Anderson Cooper 360 and Rock Center with Brian Williams, and has blogged about bullying in The Huffington Post.
