Interment will follow in Whitehall Methodist Church Cemetery. 

Jaden was born February 26, 2004, in Starkville, Mississippi, to James Blair II and Candace Duran Trosper.

Jaden was a beautiful soul with a smile that would light up the world around her. She was an outgoing teenager that loved to hang out with her friends and family. She always loved creating things with arts and crafts. She loved playing the saxophone in the band. She always talked about having her own bakery one day.

Jaden’s mom, Candace, shares: “Jaden got sick in August 2018. We soon found out she had a brain tumor called DIPG. She never let it define her or take that spunk away. She was one of the strongest people I know. I will never forget her will and determination through it all. Until the very end she fought with everything she had, and she won her battle! She’s in the most beautiful and amazing place, free from all that DIPG took from her. I know she is happy and healed and with her Mamaw Patti whom she loved dearly.

Jaden was loved and supported by so many people all over the world. We send our thanks for loving and caring for our baby girl.

Fly high, baby girl. This is not goodbye but until I see you again.
