Although Chase is completely heartbroken, he hopes this will be a HUGE lesson for others down the road. He says he strongly believes in people taking responsibility for their own actions… saying drunk driving is a downright stupid decision with real consequences.
Bottom line, he says, don’t do it!! This, coming from a guy who knows the pain firsthand… he says, “we’ve lost a beautiful person.”
