Victor and Mary Ojakian

Vic and Mary are a sweet, earnest couple and I had the opportunity to spend a half hour with them to get a couple portraits. They lost their son, Adam, to suicide a few years ago, and since then have tirelessly committed themselves to reinvigorate California’s suicide-prevention programs. Their good will and efforts are felt far and wide, which probably why they were recently honored with the 2010 Tall Tree Award for Outstanding Citizen, sponsored by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce and Palo Alto Weekly.
