This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Jay Kennedy 18 years old , born on June 25, 2000 and passed away on July 17, 2018. We will remember him forever.

  Jay was the precious son of Billie Kennedy & Jason Kennedy. He was born and raised in Paris/Puryear, TN. He left behind two little brothers Jaden Ragsdale & Ian Kennedy. He was a life long member of Puryear Babtist Church, where he was baptized and committed his life to the Lord. 

  Jay started to school at Rhea Elementary & city schools until 6th grade when he transferred to Harrelson & started playing football & basketball. He excelled with his height & weight. He finished thru 8th grade where he then moved on to Grove as a freshman. He had made the freshman football team for Henry County. He then made varsity team  for Sophmore thru his Senior year. He made good grades naturally. Upon his Senior year, the grades & his athletic abilities joined forces & he recieved a 4yr football scholarship to Bethel University in McKenzie, TN. Jays dreams came true!!

This day one year ago you were getting ready to go to your Senior Prom. Bursting with excitement. We finally talked you into going. I think you were glad you went. I know your friends sure are. The memories you all made that night will carry them now the rest of their life. They all carry you along in their heart. They will always remember you just as we will. You were so handsome & your smile still shines brightly in my mind on the darkest of nights. I love you Jaybird❤
