It has been one week since the passing of our founder, chief hope dealer and friend, @jarridwilson . Our hearts are broken, but we can’t help but reflect on all God did through the life and legacy of Jarrid Wilson. Jarrid was passionate about being transparent and honest about his struggles with mental health and depression, and by doing so he encouraged thousands and thousands around the globe to hold onto hope . His heart’s mission was to point people to God and let them know that their lives matter. He knew that it was okay to not be okay, but he loved people too much to let them stay that way. He wanted everyone to experience joy and freedom through Christ . Jarrid’s mission behind Anthem of Hope has just begun. We will continue to create resources, community and encouragement to remind you that YOUR LIFE MATTERS. Thank you, Jarrid, for championing this movement. We will continue to shout your Anthem of Hope with all we have. #anthemofhope

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the loss of a dear friend, Jarrid Wilson. Jarrid went to be with the Lord on September 9th. Jarrid is survived by his wife, Juli, his two sons, Finch and Denham, his mother, father, and siblings. • Jarrid and I met in 2015 because of our shared dream to change the world with coffee. Jarrid, @aldolihiang, and I ended up co-founding Cause Roast to do just that. Jarrid believed in the impact Cause Roast could have and loved the fact that coffee also serves as a catalyst for community. Even after moving to the West Coast, Jarrid remained a huge fan and a great friend. • As a tribute to a dear friend and amazing human-being, we are releasing a limited time blend called HOPE (available on our website). All proceeds from the HOPE Blend will go directly to @anthemofhope to help continue Jarrid’s work and legacy. In addition, we have started a @gofundme to help provide for @itsjuliwilson and the boys during this time of grief. As Juli and the kids discern the future for their family, they will also need to pay for basic necessities, health care, counseling, etc. • Please consider contributing to this fundraiser and be praying for Juli and the boys. The full letter and fundraiser link is in our bio. . . . . . #jarridwilson #gofundme #anthemofhope #causeroast #suicidepreventionmonth #hopewins

A coffee company co-founded by late pastor Jarrid Wilson is making a special blend in his honor with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting Wilson’s nonprofit suicide and depression outreach, Anthem of Hope.

Cause - Roast - Media - Week - HOPE

Cause Roast, established in 2015, announced on social media last week that it has created the “HOPE” blend in memory of Wilson, who died earlier this month at the age of 30 by suicide.

Wilson was an associate pastor at the California-based multicampus megachurch Harvest Christian Fellowship, which is led by renowned evangelist Greg Laurie.

Friends - Greg - Pittman - Aldo - Lihiang

According to its website, each bag of Cause Roast helps provide clean water for four people.

HOPE - Blend - Wilson - Edition - Blend

The new HOPE blend honoring Wilson will only be a limited edition. The multipurpose blend is billed as being “great for everything from espresso to auto drip coffee and most everything in-between.”

The proceeds from the blend will go to Anthem of Hope in order to “help continue Jarrid’s work and legacy.”

Blend - Coffees - South - America - Africa

“A blend of 3 different coffees from South America and Africa,” the online listing for the blend reads. “On espresso, the HOPE Blend is sweet and clean with subtle hints of fruit. As a drip, it is well balanced and complex.”

According to the tasting notes, it is a smooth blend of mild citrus and light chocolate.

Wilson - Wife - Juli - Anthem - Hope

Wilson and his wife, Juli, launched the Anthem of Hope as an outreach to people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts in 2016.

Anthem of Hope is “dedicated to amplifying hope for those battling brokenness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction and...
