In August of 2008, Brian and Kathy Haugen experienced the worst tragedy any parent could ever go through, the loss of their son. 15-year-old Taylor died on the football field playing the game he loved. 

In his short 15 ½ years, Taylor Reid Haugen left an indelible mark on the community though his living faith and compassion for his friends, team, community, organizations and church. “T”, as he was known, was well-respected by his peers, teachers, congregation and family as an upbeat, positive, selfless yet self-confident young man whose, two passions were Jesus and football. T was a natural leader among his friends and teammates, a mentor to the young and a positive influence and inspiration to all who knew him and of him.

Brian and Kathy are the parents of Taylor. Kathy is the Executive Director of the Taylor Haugen Foundation. It's mission is to "build and recognize youth leaders and promote youth sports safety to honor the legacy of Taylor Haugen." You can listen to their story on the podcast below. 

In this episode of the podcast, Jason Romano talks with Brian and Kathy about the legacy of their son, going through the tragedy of losing a child, and how they turned the pain of Taylor's death, into purpose.
