Sam Eaton, July 10, Founder of Recklessly Alive

Sam Eaton was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he learned to let all drivers merge with a smile. He is a powerful voice for his generation as an innovative ministry leader and sought-after communicator. In 2016, after losing five people to suicide in his hometown, he founded Recklessly Alive (, an organization sprinting toward a world with zero deaths from suicide. 

He speaks throughout the U.S. and encourages everyone he meets to chase a life that is fully and recklessly alive. Sam has a master’s degree in educational leadership and has taught music in public schools for over ten years. He is on a lifelong quest to love God, love people, expand his vinyl record collection, and try every flavor of Oreos.
