Terry Muzzy Foundation



About The Foundation

This foundation was established in loving memory of Terry Muzzy in September 2007. The Terry Muzzy Foundation supports parent support groups, high school leadership programs, scholarships and other educational initiatives.

About Terry…

Terry Muzzy, the Student Assistant Specialist for the Downingtown School District, was killed tragically in an automobile accident early in 2006. During his 16-year tenure, Terry–who was affectionately known as “Muz”–counseled students through a variety of personal crises, saving lives in the process.

Terry’s tireless efforts influenced countless teens and families sparing them the devastation of drug addiction, alcohol abuse, and other life endangering events. Through his kid-first mentality and immutable character, Terry made sure that each student received the help they needed when they needed it.

Combining his compassionate and insightful nature with his delightfully idiosyncratic sense of humor, Terry made more colorful the lives of everyone he touched. His limitless energy supply made his person and his message ubiquitous throughout the Chester County area.

At A Loss…

A support group for parents who have lost a child to addiction. The most tragic event of losing a child to substance abuse is often preceded by much anguish and turmoil as parents attempt to help their child. This professionally facilitated group offers information about the grief process and address the unique issues related to substance abuse. The purpose of this six week group is to provide a place for parents to offer each other each other guidance, hope, understanding and healing.
Thank you for donations to the Muzzy Fund in honor of Jim Walker and his son, James Walker. James passed away in July 2010 and Jim passed away in October 2019.  Jim and Jane Walker, parents of James, were instrumental in the founding of the “At a Loss” Grief Group.
