Key Bank and American Educational Services (AES): Forgive my dead son's student loan

My son Cameron was my firstborn child and very special to me. He was handsome, a Division I athlete, and brave. He was also brilliant -- when he left school to serve his country in the Air Force after 9/11, he became a cryptologist. But a traumatic brain injury left him emotionally scarred, and he committed suicide almost exactly a year ago.  

Thing is, none of that matters to Cameron's student lender, Key Bank. I co-signed Cameron's private student loan, and when he died they just started calling me to collect his debt. Collection calls are the most callous kind of reminder that you've lost a loved one, and I got them every day.   

The truth is, I can't afford to pay my son's loans now that he's dead. I'm a single parent still caring for Cameron's younger siblings and paying for the counseling services they so desperately need but that my insurance just doesn't cover. Virtually all my son's other debts were forgiven when he died, except for this one.    In fact, other major private student lenders and KeyBank competitors have implemented policies forgiving the student loan debt of dead beneficiaries. for example, Wells Fargo, Sallie Mae, Discover, and Citi Financial among them. In addition, loans guaranteed by the federal government are automatically discharged on proof of death.  

In April 2012, Key Bank forgave the student loans of of Christopher Bryski, a young man who died before he even graduated from college after his brother started a petition on Change.org. With your help, I know I can get the same result.  

Please sign my petition asking Key Bank to forgive my son Cameron's student loan. Thank you.

      Please forgive the student loan. TBI is a disability, this man could not control his disability nor the emotional turmoil it brought into his life and that of his loved ones. God Bless!

      The banks and other loan places are money hungry and don't care about anyone...

      The executives of Key Bank and AES enjoyed the protection and defense of Air Force pilot Cameron, and they show their gratitude by crapping on his corpse.

      Think carefully before you join the military and go to war. You must know who you are risking your life for.
