About Jaylen's Wish
November 2015, Make-A-Wish granted Jaylen's wish to watch an Arsenal football match in England. Jaylen, who aspired to be a world class soccer player, was thrilled that he and his Dad were going to see their favourite team play
On game day, Jaylen was taken to the Emirates stadium in a stretch Hummer, he was given a personalized program, attended the players breakfast, watched his team play and even met some of the players, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshire. It was a day filled with surprises he would never forget.
Not only did Jaylen attend an Arsenal game but he was also treated to personalized tours throughout London.
Having his wish come true brightened the last few months of his life. Jaylen passed away May 2016 with a thankful heart. Jaylen always had a strong desire to help others so through Play for Jay, we are helping make wishes come true in Jaylen's memory.
