In Memory of Tyrek Roshad Jenkins

Tyrek Roshad Jenkins, a 2017 graduate of A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School,  was the victim of a random act of violence that took his life on November 29, 2017. Tyrek was a loving son, brother, grandson, cousin, and friend. His quiet and magnetic personality will be missed forever in our family and community. Recently, Tyrek added the role of doting father to his list of personal responsibilties. His son Brenden Jenkins is only five months old. The family has established this gofundme account to underwrite all of the necessary funeral expenses of Tyrek and set up a trust for the future of Baby Brenden. If your heart leads you to give, the family will be eternally grateful. Thank you!
