Memorial for Jalen Worthen

Hello everyone, before I continue I would like everyone to get a chance to know a little more about the Jalen Worthen that we all came to know and love. Jalen was 24 years old and full of life. I don't think I ever saw him without a smile on his face. He was passionate, talented, and happy. His happiness and smile were contagious, so much so that you couldn't help but smile in his presence. I used to watch him make friends with everyone so easily, his personality would draw you in. His dream was to be a pilot and to travel the world. He always talked about taking trips to Africa for no other reason than “because he could”. There wasn’t a moment I saw him when he was looking a new bike or car to work on in his free time. His future was so bright and everyone that met him grew to love him.

It’s with a heavy heart that I say on January 6, 2018 our friend Jalen passed in a tragic car accident leaving us all in shock and disbelief. There will never be enough words to describe such a great loss to not only his family, but his friends, co-workers and everyone who had the honored enough to know Jalen.

This GoFundMe will go directly to Jalen’s family to help with funeral arrangements. I’m asking everyone to look in your hearts donate if you can no amount is too little. Please share this link and let everyone get to know who Jalen was and what he meant to people.
