Reid Peterson is the Founder of Grief Refuge, a mobile app that is a daily companion to people in grief. Reid's biological father died in 2006 and his stepfather died in 2016. After losing both father figures in his life, he sought support through community grief counseling and support groups. After realizing comfort and solace could be provided to grievers more consistently, he made the Grief Refuge app to provide support on a daily basis. Reid lives with his wife, Jessica, in Santa Barbara, California. He spends his free time pondering life at the beach, hiking trails in the mountains, and spiking volleyballs on the sand.
