The Jack Jonah Film

JJ poster.jpg

JACK JONAH is a feature film based on a true story about a family’s endurance and struggles after an unspeakable tragedy. Actor Dean Cain leads the cast in this multi-plot drama uncovering the deadly drug culture among the youth. Jack Jonah was an extraordinary young adult with real dreams of a bright future.  On April 6, 2016, that ended, and he quickly became a statistic. Now, his story is inspiring and educating many on this national epidemic. 


By viewing and sharing this film, you will join this project to challenge young adults in your community and communities around our country to be courageous in speaking out against drug use.  


This is bigger than a film about Jack’s life; it’s about his voice being echoed throughout this film to save lives.
