John Tarvin affectionately known as Jay or Coach was a mentor, coach, husband, friend, humanitarian, musician and the ultimate hype man!
Tarvin was senselessly taken from his wife(Tracey) children (Kam, Jaiyda, AJ & Hari) family, friends, & the children he coached/mentored all too soon!
Jay dedicated his life to making the lives of children in & out of the city of Hattiesburg better by the love he gave as coach of various sports. As a highly respected pillar of the Hattiesburg community, Tarvin will be missed.
We are all devastated by Jay’s loss and were not prepared for the huge financial burden it would leave. We want to help alleviate this burden and honor his memory.
I am currently asking for donations to help with financial burdens that may arise even after a funeral service.
Jay was met in Heaven by his baby boy Jakhi.
