Tasjon Tyreek Osbourne passed away on 9/11/2019. Tasjon’s smile lit up a room, and his heart lit up an entire city. All who truly knew Tasjon knew of his ability to make you laugh at your lowest moment and his undeniable skills on the basketball court. Tasjon liked to dance, spend time with those closest to his heart, and was always willing to extend a hand to those in need. Tasjon was like a leaf in the wind; sometimes landing in places, he did not fit in. It seems early on Tasjon, like most young men, felt the need to fit in. There is despair among the young of our society that has derived from a misrepresentation of what it means to “fit in.”
Tasjon leaves to cherish his memory, his loving parents, Barry and Shereen Osbourne; brother, Earl Grant; sisters Tatiana and Taliyah Bailey; grandparents Basil and Carol Osbourne; great grandfather Fisher Osbourne; great grandmother, Bernice Bair Welcome; uncles, Billy, Fitzroy, Donavon, Marcus, and Samuel Osbourne, Winston McDonald; aunt Sasha Osbourne; great uncles, John and Roy Osbourne, Calton O’Conner, and Glenroy Welcome; great aunts, Marylin Campbell, Gloria Osbourne, Baisy Burrell, Shelly and Shaniel Welcome, Elizabeth Donaghy, Suzette Gardner; special cousin, Fatah; Godmother, Angela McEachin; Godbrother, Leondis Griffin Jr.; Godsisters, Shukryyaah McEachin Griffin, and Alisha Griffin; Godmother, Tyra Martin; special friends of the family Christian Santos, LaQuisa Richardson, and a host of other relatives, friends, and family who loved Tasjon dearly.
