In 1982 while working as the Computer Aided Instruction Manager for Edmonds Community College, Dennis received that dreaded phone call that his 5 year old son was killed by an impaired driver. This tragic event was the catalyst that was the catalyst that caused Dennis to want to be the change that he wanted to see on the roadways and to becomming one of the most dynamic multiple award winning international advocate expert speakers on safe driving at highway traffic safety conferences, high schools and leadership conferences!
Unfortunately this wasn’t the only family member Dennis lost, in 2005 his 19 year old niece and unborn child was pushed out of a moving vehicle by her boyfriend who had been drinking.
Sadly on September 21st 2015 Little Dennis' mom was involved in a collision and later passed away that same day.
Dennis is very passionate on the subject of saving student’s lives whether it’s DUI, Text Messaging, Seat Belt Use, eating, smoking, aggressive driving, rolling through stop signs, running red lights, road rage or other forms of Distracted Driving.
