Cristal Davey, RN and Jason Manning | Advocate and Organ Donor | Cristal Davey, RN, at Hackensack Meridian Health Raritan Bay Medical Center, proudly advocates for organ and tissue donation by volunteering her time during the hospital’s community outreach efforts. A resident of Colonia, Cristal learned about donation when her brother, Jason Manning, tragically passed away in January 2020. Jason was a registered donor and was able to give the gift of life to others. Jason’s left kidney and liver saved the life of a 55-year-old man and his right kidney saved a 62-year-old woman. At the time of Jason’s death, Cristal was about to begin her final semester at nursing school while working and raising her four children. She believes that Jason’s selfless decision to donate helped inspire her to overcome her challenges and complete her schooling. “The time I spent at Jason’s bedside were powerful moments that helped me experience the amazing work of the hospital staff and NJ Sharing Network team,” said Cristal.
