Chris was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and attended Skyline High School. He married the former Michelle Dorny and they have four children together. On February 9, 2007, the Williams family vehicle was hit by a drunk driver, killing his wife, Michelle, who was five months pregnant at the time, and two of their four children. Chris’s story of forgiveness, healing, and hope has inspired many. He has since remarried the former Mikkel Jones, whose husband succumbed to cancer in 2006. She has two children from that marriage, and together Mikkel and Chris have been blessed with a two-year-old daughter. They’re expecting another daughter in March of 2012. Chris is currently employed as a sales executive at IBM and resides near Salt Lake City.
