Je'Sani Smith Foundation


The Je'Sani Smith Foundation's purpose is to save lives by providing education, awareness, and water skills training on beach safety, 

seaward-flowing water currents, and other coastal hazards. Increasing awareness of natural conditions that pose an imminent danger and risk at our beaches, such as rip currents, is a crucial component to improve public safety.
