Jaden passed away suddenly after suffering an asthma attack. He was a lover of sports during his young life and was extremely passionate about basketball. He was a graduate of Cedar Shoals High School in Athens, GA. and was to attend Parkland College in the fall to one day become a psychiatrist. Jaden always made sure everyone who met him would remember his smile and laugh. He touched the lives of everyone who met him and encouraged them to follow their dreams. May he rest in Heaven and continue to shine down on us.
Jaden’s mother has requested that memorial donations be made in his name to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America aafa.org in tribute to Jaden.
