Mike & JaChan's Legacy-Callon Girls

This page is being established in honor of the memory of Dr. JaChan Arnean Callon to help provide ongoing support to her husband Michael and her three beautiful daughters JaSole' (3), Jasmine and Janiya (9 months). 

Unfortunately on July 25, 2015 while celebrating her 16th wedding anniversary with her husband Michael at Martha's Vineyard, Dr. Callon suffered a massive heart attack and departed this earth on July 26, 2015.

Anyone who had any encounter with JaChan, loved her. Her kind, thoughtful spirit and jovial laugh could make anyone's day. Even though JaChan loved her family and friends dearly, her greatest gifts of all were her three adorable daughters and her husband Michael.

JaChan has truly left a legacy behind. Michael has been thrust into being a single father to 3 amazing little girls. Even though he is more than capable meeting the challenge of parenting 3 little DIVAS, he will need continuous support from generous family and friends like  you! Please help us to help Michael exceed this goal for the Callon Girls. No donation is too small. Thanks to each of you for your support of the Callon family.
