Our Story

The way our story began is all too familiar for VOID families...

On October 3, 2020, our family’s lives were forever changed. Our 19 yr old daughter, Marissa, was hit head-on by a 4 time repeat DUI offender. We had no idea all the immense struggles that awaited us - including navigating a complicated legal system while seeking justice for her 100% preventable death.

As we worked through our devastating grief, we sought the help of our state legislators to address concerns about a “system” that fails to keep impaired drivers off the road. We believe victims’ families are uniquely positioned to lead a movement focused on CHANGE & prevention. Through our efforts to find other families experiencing this loss, VOID was created.

It is our sincere hope that through our efforts and in partnership with other organizations who have a common mission, we can put an end to DUI fatalities and when the unthinkable does happen, to have strong, expedient, and consistent enforcement of our state’s laws in response.
