Jane  Clemen0  Par0cipates  as  a  Speaker            

Jane  Clemen0  is  the  mother  of  Tyler  Clemen0  who  as  a  freshman  at  Rutgers  University   became  a  vic0m  of  cyber-­‐bullying.  His  privacy  was  invaded  when  his  college  roommate  set   up  a  webcam  to  spy  on  him.  The  roommate  viewed  him  in  an  in0mate  act,  and  invited   others  to  view  this  online.  Tyler  discovered  what  his  abuser  had  done  and  that  he  was   planning  a  second  a?empt.  Viewing  his  roommate’s  Twi?er  feed,  Tyler  learned  he  had   widely  become  a  topic  of  ridicule  in  his  new  social  environment.  He  ended  his  life  several   days  later  by  jumping  off  the  George  Washington  Bridge.  Tyler  was  eighteen  years  old.   Jane  Clemen0  co-­‐founded  the  Tyler  Clemen0  Founda0on  alongside  husband  Joe  because   she  wants  to  make  sure  that  our  society  learns  the  consequences  of  discrimina0on  and   bullying,  as  she  learned  all  too  personally  through  the  loss  of  her  son.
