Jeffrey Veatch has been a news writer at ABC News Radio for 40 plus years. He moved to Yorktown Heights in 1996 with his wife and two children. In September, 2008, Veatch’s life took a drastic turn with the death of his son, Justin, to an accidental drug overdose at age 17. In 2012, Veatch created a multi-media talk called “A Message from Justin,” which tells Justin’s story. By last year, Veatch had delivered that talk to more than 20,000 young people in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. In November 2014, Whispering Spirits, a documentary about Justin and the Veatch family, premiered at The Jacob Burns Film Center.
