It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the news of Javunte Wheeler, bka SqueakPIVOT, and Derion Hood’s passing on Monday, August 16th, 2021.
Derion and Squeak were sons, friends, brothers, uncles, and most of all, men who loved and supported their friends, family and the community of Chicago. Those who were lucky to be in their presence will miss their warmth and radiant smiles. This is an immense loss for their family, Pivot Gang, the city of Chicago, and fans across the globe.
We are asking for the community to help fund funeral expenses. Any overages will be passed on to Squeak’s young children.
Derion and Squeak’s legacy will live through their loved ones, the city of Chicago, and beyond.
GoFundMe has asked us to provide transparency on the usage of funds. As a manager for Pivot Gang, my goal is to raise as much money as possible over the next week. The funds will be directly transferred to the Hood family to cover all funeral expenses and any residual funds will go directly to Squeak's children.
Thank you all for helping us reach out first goal and continuing to share and donate.
