In the open letter, Juice's mother talk about their relationship and his journey to a music career, which he found solace in by sharing his emotions and struggles through his lyrics.

According to what she said,"Jarad and I were always close," the letter begins. "We liked to play pinball together. We had long conversations about his future and about the world in general. But like any mother and son, we had our issues. Jarad came from a family where academics were the highest priority, so I wanted him to focus on school, but he was always more interested in music. His teachers would often tell me that he was extremely gifted, but that he was always focused on his music."

As a mother, she would have candid, judgment-free conversations with Juice about his personal battles. "Jarad and I often had frank discussions about his struggles with addiction, anxiety and depression," Wallace reveals. "I think he felt comfortable being honest with me because I never judged him." She recognized that what Juice was dealing with was a disease.

Wallace also touches on Juice's impact on his fans even after his death from an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine on Dec. 8, 2019. He was 21. "I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love following the loss of my son," she continues. "His loving spirit which is communicated through his music has touched so many people. I launched Live Free 999 so that perhaps his death could mean something for other mothers whose sons and daughters are dealing with the same kinds of issues that my son struggled with."
