Jayden Scott Shippe, 17, went home to be with his Heavenly Father on June 23, 2020. He was born on April 30, 2003 in Akron, Ohio to Shannon Shippe and William Jerome Lane. Jayden attended Firestone High School where he played football, basketball, ran track, and was a part of Educational Talent Search (ETS). Jayden was so full of life and was always laughing. He loved school, his friends, and going to the beach. Jayden was honored to be a part of the 2011 first class of I Promise Students and was a Lebron James Family Foundation 330 ambassador for three years where he was affectionately known as #23. He attended Christ Centered Church and his belief in God is what sustained him.
