Friends and family describe Katie Jacobson as the life of the party, compassionate, a force to be reckoned with; she could make friends with anyone. You can imagine how shocked her loved ones where when she suddenly passed away at just 25 years-old. Her best friend and her brother decided to keep Katie's memory alive by founding the Katherine Jacobson Foundation, with a commitment to putting an end to the fatal complication that took Katie's life. Katie's best friend, and Foundation co-founder, Catherine Valimont joins us with more information on how you can get involved.

The KJ Night Out from the Katherine Jacobson Foundation is happening Saturday, October 12 at Discovery World. For more information and to register, visit
