Amy Neville – bio
Amy is a yoga and fitness instructor, small business owner, President of Alexander Neville Foundation (ANF), and mother of two from Laguna Niguel. Alexander, her first-born son, lost his life from a fake prescription pill made of illicit fentanyl purchased via social media. He was fourteen, in high school and his whole life still ahead of him. Alex was in an experimental phase, took a single pill one night and never woke up.
Since losing her son, Amy has devoted her time to continuing to raise her daughter and bringing greater awareness of fentanyl to the general public. Her efforts have brought her in touch with experts in every area of the fentanyl/opioid crisis including DEA officials, prosecutors, Southern California county sheriffs, California state legislators, rehabilitation counselors, teachers, and young adults like her son, Alex. Each interaction informs her efforts and allows her to spread this message.
Amy is currently working with Various School Districts, PTA organizations, and other groups, to share her knowledge with parents, students, and anyone that will listen. In addition, she is actively pursuing legislation at a state level and building a network and larger base of volunteers to inform the public.
Rocklin, CA resident Chris Didier lost his 17-year-old son, Zachary Didier, to fentanyl two days after Christmas in 2020. Zach was an Eagle Scout, soccer player, and beloved member of the community who had no history of drug use. Chris Didier has dedicated himself to raising awareness of the dangers of fentanyl, and has no doubt saved the lives of many students like Zach through his efforts.
During his 22-year military career, Lt. Col. Didier flew the C-21 and F-15E. He currently flies the Boeing 787 for United Airlines.
