Navigating Life After a Type 1 Death

Scott Benner


Supporting those navigating life after a Type 1 death, Jesse Was Here, a unique program of Beyond Type 1, expands our efforts to a community often invisible and cements our commitment to addressing all aspects of this disease, even the most challenging. Jesse Was Here was inspired by Michelle Page-Alswager’s experience after her son Jesse’s death. She’s been mentoring several hundred parents on her own and we have others – spouses, siblings, grandparents, friends – who are in need of similar support and resources. Working together, we hope to serve this unique and deserving community.

I first met Michelle when she was on the Juicebox Podcast back in 2016. I was honored that she shared Jesse’s story with me and I am further honored to share her amazing resource with you. Michelle has built an incredible repository of information to help navigate life after a type 1 death. Her website is full of loving guidance for parents, siblings, spouses, family and friends. She even helps those of us in the community to understand how to show support to others suffering. I hope that you never need to draw on Michelle’s experience but if you do -
