JeQuan M. Strozier
Basketball court dedicated to former player
A local youth empowerment organization was getting ready to build a community center close to his home in Northwestern Atlanta where he could play basketball in a safe environment. The basketball court he dreamed of is now being dedicated in his name.
JeQuan M. Strozier, 16, was shot on May 20, 2018 while walking to his mother’s house. He had enough energy to walk home and tell his mother what happened. Although 911 was called, he was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.
