The Trustees

The Foundation was set up as a non-profit organization in 1995 by Williams himself, his wife Jillean, his manager John Levy, and his lawyer Godfrey Murrain. In 2001, the founding trustees passed the trusteeship of the Foundation to younger friends and associates of Joe Williams. They were Dennis Mackrel and Henry Johnson - both of whom had worked with Joe Williams - and Jillean's cousin Andrew Heath.
