Meet the Maker
e2e is owned and operated by me, Jon Hicks! The name "e2e" stands for "ear2ear" aka your brain and mental health.
Truthfully, mental health was never on my radar growing up. My wife, Lisa has been dealing with mental health for as long as have known and as much as I was by her side I didn't clearly understand what was going on.
Fast forward to November 2019. I was experiencing severe chest pains. My heart pounding which led to only a couple hours of sleep on and off for weeks straight. My thoughts ran wild. Am I going wake up if I fall asleep? I want to see my kids grow up. And my wife? Who is going to be by her side? This can't be happening.
I experienced my first panic attack within the fifth day of all of this happening. Two days later, kids are in daycare, my wife is at work and BAM! I was 100% sure I was having a heart attack. I called my wife at work and begged her to come home. I called an ambulance. I thought "this is it, I'm going to die"
After all was said and done, we found out it was "probably a panic attack" and was sent home.
I created e2e apparel as an outlet for me but also a way to help end the stigma towards mental health. To help people feel less alone on their journey and to know, this doesn't have to define them.
Each piece of e2e clothing has a story and a message. Each message is meant to help you on your journey. To inspire and empower.
I welcome you to follow my journey as well as others, as we work to end the stigma towards mental health.
Thank you for being here
