In Memory of Jayvan Ivy

Our hearts are broken today. Jayvan Ivy, a KIPP alumni, passed away last night due to health complications. It seems impossible to find the words to express our grief. Our support and love are with Jayvan's family during this incredibly difficult time. 

​Jayvan, you will forever be remembered for your kind heart, your sweet smile, and your relentless determination. We will never forget the day you finished all of your power standards at the end of your 7th grade year at KIPP. Your whole face was smiling and you high-fived every person in sight. Jayvan was an incredible son and the very best big brother. He will be missed beyond measure. ​​

Please consider making a donation to support Jayvan's mom, Carrie, as she takes care of these unexpected and extensive medical and funeral costs.

In times of need, we turn to our team and family for help.  Today we ask that you support the Ivy family and honor Jayvan's memory.
