Jahiem Holliday

Age 6

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Future dreams to become a teacher

At Park Elementary School, he was a brown-eyed cutie who kept his classmates laughing and had big dreams to be a teacher. People were impressed by how bright he was.

His family was big on spending quality time together and supported him at a young age when it came to his dreams. He had the dance moves of a super star and big personality to match.

On Nov. 2, 2018 Jahiem Holiday, 6, was shot while playing with his siblings and neighborhood friends on Madison Avenue, just north of Memorial Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A 13-year-old was arrested in the shooting.
