Chris found his passion and purpose as a motivational speaker after his fifteen year old son, Tyler, passed away after a seventeen month battle with terminal brain cancer. Chris is passionate about sharing the life lessons he learned during those difficult seventeen months and the months and years that would follow.
Chris and his wife, Kathleen, have been married for 30 years and have four great kids, Kylie (27), McKenzie (25) Tyler (forever 15) and Tanner (18). The Hallsey's have lived in Utah (twice), Arizona (twice), Florida, and Arkansas. All moves the family made as Chris pursued his career in corporate America.
Chris now focuses his time on family and Tyler's foundation, with his true joy being found when he is able to spread the message of self-belief, optimism, and hope left by his son.
Seven months before Tyler passed away, he asked his father to help him create a foundation to help people. Chris fulfills that wish through his work at The Tyler Hallsey Foundation and his speaking engagements.
