Jayion Christian Harris-Jordan was born to Jalisa Jordan on February 1, 2006 shortly after he was embraced by father Tyrone Pointer and the entire Pointer Family. Jayion attended public schools in Kansas City Kansas and Overland Park, Kansas, before relocating to the Lawrence, Kansas School District. Jayion, along with mom and siblings moved to Lawrence in 2015. He completed the 7th grade at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School; and was promoted to the 8th grade.
Jayion was a talented reader with an impeccable memory: he aspired to be a writer, rapper, comedian, and professional ball player. He accelerated in sports as he played football and basketball. He also participated in plays and musicals at Lawrence Central Middle School, as well as other extracurricular activities.
He was active in the youth group at church and always enjoyed spending time with his Pastor and church family. Jayion accepted Christ at a young age and practiced his faith by extending an opportunity to invite neighbors and friends to his church. His faith was important to him, and he desired to learn more about God.
Jayion stayed active in the community as he was a member of the Boys and Girls Club in Lawrence. He enjoyed many activities there, such as swimming, basketball, and other life skills programs.
He was such a loving and kind intelligent young man who never met a stranger. He made it his business to get to know the world. He included everyone he could in his circle of love. Jayion was very playful and enjoyed expressing his sense of humor on a regular basis. He loved being the big brother to his five siblings and enjoyed his status quo of being the leader. He cherished a special relationship with his dad; and Jayion shared an unbreakable bond with his mom. Jayion embedded a lasting impression on his aunts, uncles, cousins, and his Nonnie, Memaw, Papa and so many other loved ones.
