Bringing People Out of Darkness…

Into The Marvelous Light

Join the Movement

Our Programs and Initiatives



Each year four $1,000 scholarships are given to senior high school students across the country in cities where Darnell Deas, Jr. participated in community activities and high school football and track.  These cities include Navarre (FL), Watsonville (CA) and Fleming Island (FL). 



We share Dj’s story of “Trusting the Process” and encourage young individuals to never be ashamed to seek help; we offer encouraging words of affirmation through our “Alone Together” Social Media & Junior Ambassador movement.

In April 2019 we will offer FREE Mental Health First Aid training across the country.  This training teaches you how to recognize, comprehend and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.

When a loved one passes due to suicide we understand that unforeseen expenses can occur.  We offer financial assistance on a case by case basis to assist with burial expenses. 

Become a sponsor or Make a donation:

Dj’s Marvelous Light Foundation is helping the community with the generous donations being raised. All donations go towards the Darnell Deas, Jr. Marvelous Light Scholarship Fund and purchase of materials needed for Mental Health First Aid training.

We want to continue spreading mental health awareness and suicide prevention education to schools and communities across country.
