SDNT is an open-source collection of stories about former ABCNEWS 20/20 correspondent Tom Jarriel as told by family, friends, former colleagues and fans. The stories contributed here also serve as the fountainhead for a memoir about Tom authored by his son, Stephen Jarriel.
The Newsstand™ is the central place where you can browse photo galleries, watch archive videos, listen to audio interviews and read & comment on stories. It’s also where your submissions will appear and be discussed!
Eclipsing the telling of an extraordinary man’s lifeworks, Stories Dad Never Told serves to inspire other sons and daughters to document and tell the stories of their own fathers’ lives ─ using the resources and how-to gleaned from this project.
