When a Comedian Loses a Brother
Show Notes

Jordon Ferber is the Host of “Where’s the Grief?” Jordon Ferber’s only brother Russell was killed in a car accident in 2002 at the age of 21. He was just about to graduate from The Culinary Institute of America with a Pastry/Baking Arts degree. Jordon was 24, and just 2 years into his own career as a stand-up comedian.

Jordon Ferber has also been running a local support group for siblings – The Compassionate Friends Sibling Support group – for a decade. He believes he has found his calling – that of finding ways to normalize the conversations we have about grief so we can talk about it the same way we talk about everything else; often with inappropriate humor. Jordon’s family created The Russell Ferber Foundation, which provides yearly scholarships at the Culinary Institute of America in their pastry/baking arts program in honor of Russell.
