After Son's Suicide, NJ Father Challenges People To Be 'Kind' - Patch.com

Monday, March 06, 2017

He was the kind of kid who did as much as he could for others, even if he didn't have the time to do it, especially if it meant doing something kind.Then, on Aug. 4, 2015, at his home in Holmdel, that selfless life came to an end.Now his father, Dennis, is trying to extend that spirit, nearly 18 months after Dylan's suicide seemed to end all thoughts of hope. Vassallo has started "The Kindness Challenge," a Facebook page that has more than 72,000 followers and where people post anything that's intended to make people feel better about their own lives.More specifically, it's supposed to change the subject from the rancor that's dominated social media recently — and especially since the presidential election — and give people the opportunity to advertise the goodness of the world. "I like and love all of my friends regardless of their opinions," Dennis Vassallo wrote in a Facebook post. "I don’t like all the anger. It is really disheartening.""I was told a very long time ago that I am either part of the problem or part of the solution."What he got was something that was intended for a few friends and family, he said, but then grew into something big and beautiful.Some of the stories that people have posted include:A woman talke...

At the young age of 17, Dylan Vassallo did more service work than most people hope to accomplish by 50. The New Jersey teen served as an altar boy at St. Benedict’s of Holmdel for 8 years, was on his way to becoming an Eagle Scout and volunteered at several organizations such as Students Helping Honduras, Family Promise, De La Salle Blackfeet School in Montana, Lunch Break in Red Bank, The Trulia Family Feast in Perth Amboy, The Schroth School for Special Needs in Wanamassa, just to name a few.So, when Dylan’s parents tragically lost their son to suicide on Aug. 4, 2015, they wanted to find a way to honor his selfless legacy.That’s when the Kindness Challenge was born.“He had a soft spot for the underdog and downtrodden,” Dylan’s dad, Dennis Vassallo said.“It was hard to drive him to the places he wanted to go serve. That in itself was a job,” said Vassallo.After a lot of prayer and meditation, Vassallo decided to honor his son’s spirit by starting a Facebook group to inspire others to focus on the positive things in life.“People are tired of the hate,” Vassallo said. “I thought, ‘Maybe we can just be nicer to each other.’”Last Tuesday, Vassallo reve...

Friday along with 30-year-old Charles Derosier of Irvington when the van in which they were traveling flipped over on the parkway at about 6:45 p.m. in the northbound express lanes in Holmdel.New Jersey State Police Sgt. 1st Class Gregory Williams said Saturday morning that the 2001 Ford passenger van driven by Manuel Perez, 55, of Elizabeth, was carrying 14 people. According to a preliminary investigation, police believe Perez lost control of the van, then crossed the highway from the left lane, striking the guard rail and concrete overpass support. Williams said the van continued to spin out of control and crossed the road again, this time striking Guardado-Quintani, who had been ejected from the vehicle. She and Derosier were both pronounced dead at the scene, police said.Police say a dozen passengers were injured and four of the victims were transported to the hospital via medical helicopter.On Saturday, Guardado-Quintani’s niece, Blanca Amor, of Roselle, started a GoFundMe page. On the site, she describes her aunt as “very shy, honest, caring and such an innocent person.”Amor said on the page that her aunt “dedicated her life” to caring for her grandmother and great-grandmother in El Salvador. Amor said when her great-grandmother passed away at age 105, Guardado-Quintani moved to the United States to live with her sisters.“We never got to say goodbye the right way,” Amor said of her aunt’s death.She said the page w...
