Preserving and sharing the personal wisdom and legacy stories of our time
Every time an elder dies they take a library of life lessons with them. The Living Legacy Project was launched in 2008 with a mission to collect, archive and share the greatest body of wisdom in history before it is lost forever.
To accomplish our mission we built the award-winning legacyStories.org archive so that every person’s legacy stories can be told today and preserved for generations.
Everyone wins by playing a role, whether by submitting your own legacy stories, helping others submit theirs, helping clients get started and/or donating to sustain the archive.
Dennis Stack is a former Senior VP-Branch Manager for UBS/PaineWebber. Over a career spanning 20+ years, Dennis built a network of professionals in Estate Planning, Wealth Management, Accounting and Insurance with a focus on intergenerational wealth planning.
After losing his father, then losing his mother to Alzheimer’s soon after, he regretted not taking time to ask about their past. It was while working with hospice caregivers that Dennis decided to leave his successful career to found Project StoryKeeperto provide legacy story collection training to senior care and financial services professionals across the country.
To that end, he created the StoryKeeper Guidebook, which has since been transformed into the Legacy Stories Handbook. He trained more than 5,000 care providers in over 800 Hospices, Home Care, Assisted Living and Veterans communities as well as numerous financial advisors and estate planners.

He co-founded Legacy Stories with Dennis after being inspired by his message as a guest on the show. In his role as CEO, Tom produced the groundbreaking Legacy Café Podcast, the Legacy Talk Digest, the Family Legacy Coaching System, and led development of the award-winning LegacyStories.org archive for the Living Legacy Project.
Tom also co-founded the International Assoc. of StoryKeepers (I ASK), a global network of Certified Legacy Consultants to assist families with recording and submitting legacy stories to the archive.
Prior to this he launched an oral history project near the Great Smoky Mountains to preserve the history and voices of its elder residents.
