Remembering Jakeil Reynolds

On the night of July 22, 2020, Jakeil Reynolds was tragically murdered after attending a party in Ladera Heights, Ca. Jakeil was a loving son, brother, friend, and coach to all who knew him. 

Jakeil has been thriving within the Los Angeles and Santa Monica community as a role model for all children he worked with, especially the youth.  He was the person your child would look up to and say "I want to be like coach Reynolds when I'm older".  Jakeil's infectious smile, charm, and wit never went unnoticed and you would always know when his positive energy entered the room.  His loving free spirit, laugh, life of the party attitude, and dance moves couldn't be unnoticed.  He was known for being adventurous in all activities, from excelling in football, snowboarding, surfing, and more. He was an all-around individual of likes of all sports and quickly adapted to anything that was presented to him. Jakeil will be missed by all those who were blessed to know him. 

Our family is completely heartbroken and devastated by the news of his untimely departure due to the senseless actions of others. Jakeil was just making his big strides in life with his newfound purpose and niche. We were all looking forward to seeing him continue down the positive path he's set out for himself. 

Losing a loved one is never easy especially in this manner. We are asking our friends and community to help raise funds for Jakeil's funeral expenses in laying him to rest. We appreciate any donation amount in helping our family. 

Thank you all and God Bless. 

With love, Family.
