“We define and distinguish ourselves by how selflessly and courageously we summon strength, compassion and humility in times of adversity, reinvent ourselves and give back to the world.”
- Dr. Ken Druck
Along with his career accomplishments, and the success of Druck Enterprises Inc., Ken Druck prides himself with being a good and loving father, son, brother, uncle, friend, community member and citizen. He has devoted ⅓ of his time to community service over the years, founding The Parent Education Forum, San Diego Bereavement Consortium and San Diego Civility Awards and co-leading the Community Alliance for Youth Success with Stedman Graham and Bobbi Deporter.
The Jenna Druck Center
In 1996, Ken’s life changed dramatically. The tragic death of his oldest daughter, Jenna, while studying abroad, inspired Ken to found The Jenna Druck Center. To honor Jenna, Ken grew the Center’s Families Helping Families program (helping families who had lost a child) and Spirit of Leadership (something Jenna had created at age 15 for teen girls), into award-winning programs. The Center directly helped over 7,500 bereaved families and provided leadership training to over 18,000 young women. For his community service, Dr. Ken Druck received the “Visionary Leadership” and “Distinguished Contribution to Psychology” awards.
Dr. Druck continues to address wide-ranging topics in his community and around the nation speaking for distinguished audiences including The Harvard School of Public Health, Young Presidents Organization and Center for Peace and Justice. His focus is on civility, civic responsibility, youth success, grief literacy and healthy aging, working synergistically with a variety of not-for-profit and socially-responsible organizations.
