On Sunday, April 19, 2020, Jim Hooker passed away. Televerde lost its co-founder, visionary and dear friend.

Jim leaves behind a company that is one of its kind. His support and advocacy for the most disempowered among us never wavered and was evident in both his words and actions.

Jim challenged all of us to look beyond societal stigmas and see people for who they are today and what they could be in the future. As he said time and again, “Discarding people for the rest of their life, based on a decision they made on the worst day of their life, is such a waste of human potential.” Watch Jim’s TEDx My Journey from Privilege to Prison. Jim’s spirit and legacy will forever serve as the foundation of Televerde and the Televerde Foundation.

While our hearts are sad over Jim’s passing, they are also filled with gratitude that our paths crossed with his. We will celebrate and honor his memory always by continuing the work he cherished.

Our thoughts today are with the Hooker family—Robin, Jimmy, Joey, and Jack.
