Jaylin Michael Randall Lee Mosby was born January 28, 2006, in Columbia, South Carolina. He was the beloved son of Michael Lucas Mosby and Kayla Kentrell Wilson. On Sunday, July 31, 2022, Michael attended a Stop the Gun Violence Rally not knowing that the next day he would become a victim of the same such violence. At the end of the rally, Michael surrendered his Life to the Lord and on Monday, August 1, 2022, he was called home to be with the Lord.
“My Boy” as he was affectionately called, was educated in the public schools of Richland County where he attended Burnside Elementary, Crayton Middle and Dreher High School. He was a rising Junior and would have been in the 11th grade this Fall.
Like all teenage boys, Jaylin loved to play video games. He also enjoyed playing basketball, football and being around family and friends. Jay showed amazing loyalty to his family and friends. He was a nurturer who always looked out for and protected his siblings. Jay also had a playful side; he loved to smile, and he could pull a prank on you in a heartbeat! If you were ever in his presence, you knew you had better be on the lookout. He also had a strong sense of justice. As a young African American Male, he saw when situations were unfair, and he wanted the world to be a better place. He was also very persuasive and knew how to use his “charming smile” to sway any decision; and oh, how he thought of himself as “A Ladies Man”. “Heaven Look Out!”
Jaylin was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, John Henry Wilson Jr.; and his paternal grandmother, Lawanda Mosby.
Those who will forever cherish his fond and precious memories are his loving parents, Lucas and Kayla; six (6) loving brothers, Michael, Jordan, Bryson and Jaleir Mosby, Caleb Carter and Calvin Busby; five (5) loving sisters, Aylissa, Nevaeh, Kyliegh, Mahliyah Mosby and Nikyra Goodwin; loving and caring grandmother, Cassandra Wilson; caring grandfather, George Hall; loving great-grandmother, Ethel Mae Floyd; caring uncles, John Henry Wilson III, Troy L Wilson, Araenio Hall and Alkeem; loving aunts, Joan Myers, Brittany Wilson, Cynthia Wilson, Chantae Brooks, Kaijae, Alexus, Shaviclea, Trinette and Ebony; loving godfather, Elder Randall “Mack” (Lisa) Jackson; loving godmothers, Alicia Que, Sarah Burham; and his caring great-godmother, Ella Johnson; caring great-uncles, Raymond Jenkins, Charles Jenkins, Reginal Jenkins, Cedric Jenkins, Lavelle Mosby and Frank Allen; caring great-aunts, Vera Randolph, Phyllis Allen, Delma Jenkins, Rita Jenkins, Gloria Mosby, Patrena Mosby and Laverne Jones; a host of cousins and other loving relatives and dear friends, all of whom will dearly miss him.
