On January 14, 2011 Matthew Solomon Mezza inexplicably took steps to end his life and passed away the next morning. He was only 14 years old. Matthew enjoyed math, science, creative writing and drawing. He played many sports and two months before his death he made the Santa Monica High Baseball team and was drafted as a pitcher. He was active at his synagogue Youth Group and on Sundays he volunteered as a teaching assistant at the religious school.

Matthew’s suicide came as a complete shock to his family, friends and teachers. He loved hanging out with his family and he maintained friendships that spanned from preschool and kindergarten all the way to high school. Matthew exhibited all of the most treasured human qualities and was recognized and admired for his kindness, generosity of spirit, eternal optimism and his passion for working to make the world a better place. The Matthew Mezza Memorial Fund was created by his family to support Teen Line’s outreach programs in his memory.

      • Ellie & I want to again thank the hundreds of donors to Matthew’s Memorial Fund. Your ongoing financial support of Teen Line is essential to the program and the tens of thousands of teens in L.A. County, throughout the U.S. & the world who rely on Teen Line’s Hot Line and Outreach services for help. Teen Line receives no government support & relies on the generosity of people like you. THANK YOU!

        Ellie and I want to thank everyone who donated to Teen Line via Matthew’s Memorial during Teen Line’s recent year end campaign. Your generosity helps Teen Line continue to help teens with much needed prevention services. Please continue donating to Teen Line.

        Peter & Ellie

    • Ellie & I again want to thank those of you who have remembered Matthew today 5-31-17 on what would have been his 21st birthday. By donating to his Memorial at Teen Line you have helped tens of thousands of other teens throughout the USA & the world who reach out to Teen Line for help each year. Your contributions literally save lives. Thank You.

  • On today, the 4th anniversary of Matthew’s death, Peter and I would like to thank our family, friends and neighbors for giving so generously to Teen Line in Matthew’s memory. We always knew that Matthew would make a difference in the world, that he would change lives and even save lives. We never expected, though, that it would be in this way. We appreciate all that Teen Line does for teens all over the world and all their staff has done for us. Sending love and gratitude to you all.

  • We honor the memory of our wonderful neighbor, Matthew, growing up with all of our children in a neighborhood that treasured every child. We honor the strength, courage and love of his family to this day.

  • Ellie & I want to thank the 81 people & families who donated a total of $7,580 in our recent Mitzvah donation drive in recognition of what would have been Matthew’s 20th birthday on May 31st.

  • Ellie & I want to thank all those who continue to support Teen Line through their recent year end donations. Your on-going support is essential to continuing Teen Line’s work in our community and our expanding national clientele population. Thank you very much.

    Ellie Schneir & Peter Mezza

  • Again and again Ellie and I are incredibly grateful to all of you who have donated in the past to Teen Line and to those who continue to donate year after year to Matthew’s Memorial fund. Rest assured that your donations are vital to Teen Line’s mission. This year we celebrate Teen Line’s 40th year of operations and the hundreds of Teen Listeners who have helped the hundreds of thousands of teens from all around the country who have called and texted for help. Thank you.
