Jamie


Jamie Kendall was a woman of unparalleled energy, passion, enthusiasm, kindness, compassion, and generosity.  

As President of the OI Foundation Board of Directors, Jamie set a high standard for leadership to improve the lives of people with OI. As a volunteer, she supported, counseled, and inspired countless people with OI and their loved ones. Beyond her family, friends and work on behalf of Americans with disabilities, Jamie was passionate about empowering the adult OI community in the areas of education, employment and their unique health concerns.  In all she did, Jamie encouraged adults with OI to push beyond themselves and plan for a healthy future. 

The Jamie Kendall Fund for OI Adult Health was created in her honor. The program, which is part of the OI Foundation’s Adult Health Initiative, will raise funds and awareness to improve the health and quality of life for adults living with OI.

The goal is to raise $250,000 in two years to fund a promising pulmonary study, provide training opportunities for medical professionals nationwide so that they are better educated on issues affecting adults with OI, and develop health management guidelines.
