"Jarvis visited (virtually) with 2 of my theatre classes from 2 organizations I work with. His light shines brightly, even over Zoom, as he spoke with and inspired these classes of young performers. He brought humor, honesty, real-life stories, and more genuine love for theatre, youth, and humanity in general, than I think I've ever seen. He answered questions with grace, encouraged with integrity, and spoke from the heart. On top of that, he has an appreciation for those kids that are often underappreciated. One of my students was, I swear, standing on his head for a large part of class (he was listening, but that's what he does). When I apologized to Jarvis afterward, he said "Noooooo! I loved XXXX enjoying his space! I really did!" and he meant it. Words could never express the joy and inspiration Jarvis has brought into both my life and my virtual classroom."
