Lost to gun violence on April 17, 2016 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Jajuan was killed by crossfire between a crowd gathered at a park and two passing vehicles. He was sitting in his father's parked car at the time. Earlier in the day he had attended a celebrity basketball game in honor of his now-famous cousin Zaevion Dobson, who died in December while shielding friends from gunfire. Jajuan was a 6th grade student at Bearden Middle School. He loved basketball and played in the AAU League.
