Professional jazz saxophonist Jimmy Greene lost his six-year-old daughter Ana Márquez-Greene in December 2012. She was one of the 20 children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. “She taught me a lot about myself,” Greene says. “She taught me about how to love, how to give.” Since losing Ana, Greene has channeled his grief into his music.
