HARRISON, Jeffrey Chisholm Age 68, of Dedham, died peacefully at home on January 24, 2015, following a battle with cancer. Born on September 27, 1946, he was the son of the late Dr. J. Hartwell and Gertrude (Chisholm) Harrison of Brookline, and the youngest brother of John, Robert, and Cornelia (Scribner). A devoted husband and an inspiring father, he is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Deborah (Smith), and their three children, Kristin, Tucker, and Eric. Jeff highly valued education and was a proud graduate of Dexter School, Noble and Greenough School, and Bowdoin College. He was a 1st Lt. in the U.S. Marine Corps and an active volunteer at the Norfolk County Correctional Center, dedicating his life to the service of others. He enjoyed every moment of his days: spending time with his family, playing guitar, running around Dedham, and skiing in New Hampshire and Maine. Living with the mantra of “one day at a time,” Jeff brought peace, joy, and love to every life he touched.
