Chris Williams served 7 years in prison from 2007-2014 for a burglary crime. Chris was released without any funds or resources, but made a way to live the straight and narrow. He had to do a few odd jobs and then was given the opportunity to give away free government phones to low income families and that is when Chris formed his own company “CEO Executives”.
One day Chris impressed a Russian Man with his great work ethic and this man endorsed him $5,000 to start his own marketing company. Chris was so deserving of this break since he had just gotten out of prison and wanted to do things the right way this time around. Chris employed and hired people in the community to work for him that wouldn’t have normally received the opportunity that he gave them.
When I met Chris, I was in fact still homeless at the time couch surfing with a friend. I have only lived in Los Angeles for several of years and still had a lot of living and learning to do here. I did not know who I could trust or talk to when things were really bad for me. Chris was the one who gave me rides when I needed it, the contacts to help me form my own business and Chris was the first person to ever give me my own office in Downtown Los Angeles overlooking the L.A. sky rise. Chris Williams is such a kind and caring man that would give his last to save another person.
The Criminal that Chris is labeled was nothing like the Chris Williams friend I knew and to hear that he was sent back into the system has been devastating to his community. Chris has employees that depends on him for income and job opportunities to give to their families and friends. Chris is just not your ordinary man. He is a father, hardworking citizen and a caring person. Chris deserves another chance at life and another chance to make his community better. We hope that Chris’s voice is heard fairly and not looked at as just a criminal, because Chris is so much more than his past and still has greatness ahead of him. Chris William’s story is still left unwritten and he needs a chance to right all of his wrongs and create his legacy that he is so capable of doing. Let’s give Chris the chance he deserves.
