Announcing The News About Their Son’s Demise They Made A Lengthy Post On Facebook, Read Below:-
It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we announce that our son C.J. Harris gained his angel wings and is on his way to HEAVEN.
CJ fought a very hard fight all the way up until Marie and I watched him take his final breath, but the ball was dropped by the neurology team on so many levels in regards to the care and attention he received even after repeated demands to get scans and tests that could have caught the issue, preventing it from worsening after receiving a very optimistic initial evaluation that he would make a full recovery.
We are determined to fight for our kid the way he was fighting for all of us who love him so much and to make sure that other families don’t have to experience this gut-wrenching pain. Most know CJ as a talented athlete, but he is most known in our family not as an athlete, but as a kindhearted, respectful, tough-minded difference maker, who impacted lives and made this world a better place. As his parents, we are most proud of how he always made himself available to the “unpopular” kids so that they felt like they belonged.
To all of CJ’s teammates, friends, and classmates, hang in there and keep his name lifted. Since he was a kid he would always tell me “Dad, I want them to remember my name”. Well, son, you did a great job here on this earth and they do remember your name. We are so proud of you for all that you’ve done and the impact you had on others. We know that his calling is greater than anything that he could have ever accomplished here on earth.
Thank you all in advance for your prayers, love, privacy, and unwavering support for our son and family during this very difficult time.
