The Black Greek community is currently mourning the loss of 18-year-old Jayquon Tillman of Kappa Alpha Psi.
Tillman was an Eastern Michigan University sophomore who was shot and killed early Saturday morning at a party near Kent University in Ohio.
A recent initiate of the Delta Nu chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and a member of other community and student groups including, the Kings of Color student organization at EMU and the Young Brother’s Leadership Council of the Washtenaw County chapter of My Brother’s Keeper, Javon was an active member of his community.
Friends and well-wishers showed up to pray and memorialize Tillman in front of the local Kappa house this weekend.
I'm happy we can get together to express our love for Jayquon Tillman here at the KAPPA house on Normal Street. We are our #BrothersKeeper.
