Cassie M. Yde

Cassie M. Yde, a leader in the widow support movement, began her grief journey when her husband Bob died after a long illness in 2006. Cassie knows first-hand that the loss of a spouse is life changing. In 2007, she attended a grief support group at Florida Hospital, facilitated by Chaplain Mark Stoddart, who encouraged her to use her talents to bring hope and healing to others. She initially co-facilitated grief support groups with Chaplain Stoddart and has continued this work for groups throughout Seminole county over the past decade.

Cassie is an active member of her church, and currently serves as the Chair of the Preschool Board. Cassie and her late husband started The Television Syndication Company, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, and she has continued to honor his legacy through her work. She loves to travel and makes a difference in the world through the many programs she works on, such as her work in Gaitu, Kenya, raising money to build a permanent medical clinic to help village children in this improvised area to have a better life. It is Cassie’s desire to help others along the rocky road of grief as a way to honor her late husband’s life.
