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.
Members of the Black greek community from across the nation have taken to social media to show their support. Click through the slideshow below to see what they are saying.
Chapter brothers have created a GoFundMe account for Jayquon’s family to help with the burial and they have raised $8,000 of their $10,000 goal.
We ask that you keep Tillman’s family, friends and fraternity brothers in your thoughts. We also ask that you leave your condolences and memories of him in the comment section below so that his family can see how much he meant to all of us.
