At 20 years old, Damon West was a Division 1 starting quarterback at the University of North Texas, when he suffered a career ending injury. He turned to hard core drugs to cope with disappointments of life. Eventually, he was sentenced to sixty-five years in a Texas prison.
While incarcerated, Damon began his recovery. After seven years, he emerged from prison as a changed man. He set out to help change the course for those around him.
Today, Damon lives a life of service, going to meetings and sharing his story all over the country. His #BeACoffeeBean message has inspired thousands. Damon’s story of redemption, grit and determination continues to inspire others.
Thank you to all of our event sponsors for supporting CSI's kids and families through PurseOnalities 2021!
