My name is Jayda Smith, and Jalan Alston saved both me and Sierra’s lives from the rip current off the Jersey shore. He selflessly and almost instinctively jumped into the current after me, pushed me out and got me to shore. He then tried to get back to the shore with Sierra’s help, but to no prevail. He understood what was happening, grabbed her wrist and shook his head, then with a push sent her to the shore with me using his last bit of strength he had. It’s because of him that I am here, sharing his story to the world. He has such a beautiful soul and spirit, heart and mind. He gave me a second chance, and I will be using it to make his life, his legacy rememberable, starting here. The proceeds raised will 100% go to his family to help create a beautiful funeral for him. His mom is the added beneficiary to ensure you that all money raised goes right to them. Jalan will forever be in our hearts and our minds; we promise to make him proud. Rest easy, Jalan Alston.
