Darius wasn't just a ball player; he had a brilliant mind as well. Our stellar student was scheduled to graduate on December 16, 2022 with a Bachelor's degree in Sports Management but Darius’ dreams and goals were stolen. The DLee23 Foundation promises to continue the legacy of this educated, talented, respectable, charismatic young man who believed in following his own path and doing it his way. The LEE Way!
Darius Lee was an intelligent college athlete with a promising future until he was senselessly gunned down in a random mass shooting Father’s Day weekend, June 20th, 2022 while home on college break visiting his family. NYPD is still investigating his murder and asking for help that would lead to an arrest of the person or persons responsible.

“I want some kid that may not have the money; to go to school in Darius’ name.
Every time we give a kid a scholarship, Darius Lives.”
…Yall make the decision. We’ll start the fund with $10,000 in the name of Darius Lee.”
