Darryl A. Harrison, Jr. Legacy Fund

Established 2021

This fund was created by the family of Darryl A. Harrison, Jr. to honor his legacy.

Darryl Anthony Harrison Jr., 39 departed the earthly world February 7, 2021. Born on November 13, 1981 at the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, he was the
only son of Darryl and Sandra Harrison.

Darryl was baptized at Christian Fellowship Center, by pastor Milton Benard. Darryl read the Bible and understood its teachings. More importantly, he felt acts of service were his way of being closer to God.

Darryl attended Proviso West High School in Hillside, Illinois. Later he became a scholar of life’s experience, thus, teaching himself Automotive Car Audio and Visual Systems Installation, which led to establishing his own business, Comfort Zone Customs. Darryl taught himself how to build computers from start to finish, which ushered him into Music Production, and Visual Web Design, creating another business, NastyTrack Productions. Darryl began to fully pursue music production as a way to explore his passion for music and a creative release. He served as a resource and mentor to neighborhood youth who aspired to enter the music industry. Darryl poured himself into any endeavor he pursued.

Darryl led with love and always wanted to help others. He began his acts of service as an employee of Youth Outreach Services and with his masonic brothers. He participated in countless community service events, from feeding the homeless under the bridges in Chicago to participating and planning events to help improve the lives of families and youth in the inner city.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
