In Loving Memory Of Jalon aka RICO

You may have known him as Jelan, Lon or Rico; his kids only knew him as Dad. On August 26th, hours after celebrating his daughter’s first birthday, Jelan Moreira was taken from us in a senseless act of violence. His family, friends and community have been deeply shaken by the loss of a great man, whose good heart touched everyone around him, and he will be truly missed.

He was a beloved son and brother and a loyal friend of many, but above all else, Jelan was a devoted father who was working hard to create a better life for his children; it is heartbreaking knowing that he will not be able to see them grow or watch them achieve the dreams he had for them. Everyone that knew him knows he’d want to make sure his kids never have a want for anything. These proceeds will be going towards taking care of his young son and daughter, Jalon and Kelsi, and for paying towards Jelan’s funeral expenses. Although it won’t help ease the pain or hurt of him not being here physically, any kind gesture can help in other ways. Thank you for anything given in advance. 
Drevaughn Sheppeard is the beneficiary and was a brother of Jalon.
