Shannon Decker is the Executive Director of the Speedy Foundation and the Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition. The Speedy Foundation was started in 2011 in memory of Shannon’s cousin, Olympic Freestyle skier and three time Olympian, Jeret Peterson. His death compelled Shannon and her family to help others affected by suicide.The family felt that the Speedy Foundation could help that cause by providing help with funding as well as using Jeret’s legacy to gain traction. The Speedy Foundation believes that education for the general public is a tremendously important piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked.
