Jaylen Gregory McEachin

Sunrise: May 26, 1998

Sunset: August 24, 2019

During the early hours of Saturday, August 24, 2019, God called our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend home. Jaylen Gregory McEachin, also known by Jay and Pooch was born on May 26, 1998 at Jackson Memorial
Hospital in Miami, Florida to parents Jack McEachin and Daniella Bryant.

Jaylen was a 2016 graduate of Granby High School in Norfolk, Virginia. He was newly enrolled in school for welding, but his real love was music and fashion. He had a keen eye for clothes designing and a passion for creating his own style. He enjoyed
spending time with family and friends, and those remembered for his kind and playful spirit and his contagious and infectious smile.

Jaylen was preceded in death by his grandmother, Julia McEachin, his great-grandmother, Melvina Butcher, and his aunt, Mildred McEachin-Norman. He leaves behind his parents, Jack McEachin and Daniella Bryant, big brother, Courtney Coleman,
grandparents; Gisela Garnett, Jackie Clark, Audrey Clark, great- grandfather, Carlos Garnett, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends.

Although Jaylen’s journey on this earth has ended, we will continue to celebrate his legacy of love, family, and integrity. He will be missed greatly.

    Jaylen was such a great person. He was funny, charming , talented and very caring. I wish that he was able to walk along earth longer. At least he was able to leave his memories and music so he could live forever. I pray for peace to his loving family through this hard time. You all are in my prayers, may God grant our hearts with peace . He will forever live in our hearts.

    Jaylen was an energy that was positive for every environment he blessed. I have 5 brothers and yes he is one of them . always respected and just was well rounded thanks to moms . he looks just like her. I love his passion to be like his brother since I’ve met him. I youst to joke and say ‘lil Courtney don’t make me call your brother boy’ because that’s who he admired. Not only he was better than us but he took andvange seeing our down falls and made a way to acell by growing and really becoming a man . u and my brother greig were a team . my home has been lost since trying to heal our hearts. I’m happy he is anywheree but this sick world. I still talk to u once a day aloud . love you bro and i will see u one day so you can be that’s agravating lol loving most humble human my brother had a chace to grow with. Will see you my boy at 1 and don’t be late for the party we have for u after
