SEND IT (verb) – An action or activity you can do wholeheartedly, with confidence and absolute passion.
I first met Jamie Schou when I was exploring North Lake Tahoe real estate and stopped by the Tonopalo Private Residence Club to learn about the program. The first thing I noticed about Jamie was his height – he was really, really tall. The second thing I noticed was his warm and inviting personality. He was a great guy. I was lucky to have worked with Jamie on a few real estate transactions. It was truly a shock when I learned a few years later that he had a rare and aggressive form of cancer. I didn’t know Jamie long, nor that well, but I will never forget him.
The Lifestyle Escapes philosophy is “Time is Precious”. The Send It Foundation and Lifestyle Escapes share the values of kindness, exploration and life experiences. These sentiments are exemplified in Jamie’s words:
“I want to live a life of significance, of exploration, of experience, of love. I have refocused the value of my days. I want all the experiences that life has to offer! If I am outside, enjoying family and friends, creating something, doing something new, exploring a new place, climbing what I want to climb, smiling at strangers like I never have, striking up random conversation, doing my best to make the world a better place, eating well, exercising, waking up earlier, getting stronger, hugging more, saying I LOVE YOU – then I am unafraid. I am alive! I am living the way that I should be.” – Jamie Schou
We hope you find inspiration in these words and encourage you to visit the Send It Foundation site to learn more and contribute to their mission.
