Samantha Josephson

On March 29, 2019, our Daughter, Samantha Josephson, a 21 year old senior at the University of South Carolina, was kidnapped and murdered when she was targeted by a fake Uber driver.  Immediately following this unfathomable tragedy, we set out to educate others on the importance of Rideshare Safety so that no other family would have to suffer this kind of loss.   

#WHATSMYNAME Foundation was established in honor of our Daughter, Samantha Josephson.

hulu series

There is a new series just released on Hulu called "Death In The Dorms" that features a dedicated episode on our Daughter, Samantha.

Why do we continue to tell Samantha's story? So that no other family has to experience our pain. We hope that with every program like this, we can help educate the public on the importance of Rideshare Safety and in turn, save precious lives.
