Her short life made a big impact

As a high school student, Morgan Judd would give up valuable sleeping time – Saturday mornings – to go teach young girls at her dance studio in Blue Ash. This was simply typical Morgan. She was the girl who was always prepared, never late and was always there for people.

Morgan JuddAs a high school student, Morgan Judd would give up valuable sleeping time – Saturday mornings – to go teach young girls at her dance studio in Blue Ash. This was simply typical Morgan. She was the girl who was always prepared, never late and was always there for people.

When her younger brother was diagnosed with Crohns Disease, she was his biggest supporter. The teenager would run from school to the hospital to dance practice, never missing a beat.

As a freshman at Wake Forest University, Morgan quickly got involved, built strong friendships, made the University dance team and volunteered at a local food pantry during the holidays.

Morgan passed away on December 6, 2011 at age 19 from a blood clot to the brain.

Amid this tragedy, her parents, twin brother and two younger brothers and loved ones found comfort in the knowledge that she would continue to help others after her death. The teenager had made her own decision to become an organ donor and her generosity saved five lives.

“It is amazing the lives that she saved,” said her father Jerry Judd. “That story will be one that unfolds over time, we’re just starting to learn more about the recipients and hope to meet them and hear their stories.”

The lives saved by Morgan include a 37-year-old mother of twin boys needing a heart; a nineteen-year-old teenager who can now go to college thanks to Morgan’s lungs, and a 58-year-old father received her liver.

Morgan’s death also inspired an outpouring of love and support from those who knew and loved the happy and kind young woman. Her friends, unbeknownst to her family, set up a Facebook fundraising site and over 200 people donated more than $10,000. These gifts and others created the Morgan Judd Memorial Fund at The Greater Cincinnati Foundation which to date has received more than $100,000. With these gifts, the Judds were able to endow a scholarship at Ursuline Academy and will continue to support other causes Morgan cared about.

To show support, Morgan’s friends also created a virtual phenomenon through social media. Friends posted photos of her initials written on their hands. Thousands participated and a beautiful video captures the effort.

“I think the thing that is so striking is that she went to school on August 26 and she died on December 6, so she wasn’t even there that long but you can see the impact she had on so many people in a short time,” her mother Leigh said.

Morgan and her three brothers also left their parents with another gift – no regrets. The four teenagers deeply loved each other and were very close.

“I don’t think anyone left anything unsaid; they always told each other they loved each other every time they talked,” Leigh said. ”I have no regrets, if I had to rewind and do it again; there is nothing I would do differently. That gives me a lot of peace.”
