The San Francisco Chapter of The Links, Incorporated (SF Links) is deeply saddened by the passing of Jamie Redford, who was among our most giving, compassionate, considerate, and benevolent partners. His commitment to working with our Chapter to help advance awareness and understanding of the link between toxic stress in children and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), was profound; and how the resulting triggers can alter brain development in children, and lead to lifelong health impacts such as heart disease, cancer, substance abuse, and depression.

On behalf of the San Francisco Chapter of Links, Inc., we extend our deepest condolences to Jamie Redford’s loving wife, children, and family members. We thank you for sharing Jamie with us, and for supporting all that he did to help us, and help others through his gift of documentary filmmaking. Our love and prayers are with you.
