Before his death, Harrison struggled with addiction and even went missing in 2016 after a relapse. At that time, 62-year-old Jack applied via social media in the hope of finding his son.
“I will ask those who want to share their fears, addictions and problems to do it with me via Twitter. We can meet them together, I’ll start,” the Melrose Place graduate tweeted in July 2016. “I fear for the safety of my younger sons. Harrison struggled with drugs and alcohol the same way I did when I was younger. He has a relapse and has been missing for 5 days.”

Against the background of his personal problems, Harrison was increasingly vocal about his attempts to change his life. “Life is a roller coaster. It’s all about transformation and how we grow as people to have the strength and willingness to make changes…. And remember, no matter what the past says about you or what you’ve done, there’s ALWAYS room for forgiveness if you’re willing to forgive YOURSELF,” the DJ wrote on Instagram in September 2021 along with a photo of an open road. “IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE, NOT to mention that if you’re struggling, trust me… I was there. But we get out of the situation by seeing the world through a different lens.”
In his last Instagram post on May 22, Harrison shared hope. “Focus. YOU stayed with YOU and your thoughts,” he captioned a picture in which he looks thoughtful in Los Angeles.
