John Benjamin Staley, III

March 12, 1991 ~ May 25, 2022 (age 31)


John Benjamin Staley, III (Jay Jay) was born on March 12, 1991 in Charleston, South Carolina. He attended Berkeley County Schools and obtained his high school diploma from Goose Creek High School.

John Jr. continued pursuing his career receiving an Associate Degree in Applied Science Criminal Justice. John loved working with the Law Enforcements and worked in this profession for 12 years. He had a contagious smile that would light up a room and brighten up anyone's day. Jay Jay had a passion to help everyone. He was a great big brother to his younger brother Jonathan who we call Donnie. There was not a day that went by where they did not talk and say, "I love you!" He played football and he loved to read text while talking to you; doing two tasks in one! He was a very sociable person. John Jr., received Christ at an early age while attending Light of the World Church under Pastor Charles Jackson and Fresh Anointing Ministries under Pastor Alvin Akins.

Jay Jay leaves to love and cherish his sweet memories: Parents: John B. and Karen H. Staley, Sr.; two brothers: Jonathan Staley and Devin Gilbert; Grandparents: Minnie Staley (late John Staley); William and Patricia Hymes, late Betty Profit; Uncles: Keith R. Staley, Sr. (Kammye), Brian Hymes, Earl Chisholm, Kawame Hymes (Moneguie), Daniel Staley (Taryn), Terry Profit, Jr. and Michael Profit; Aunts: Ramona Leufroy (Reginald), Paulette Reynolds (Al), Nikki Fields, Patrice Simmons (Robert), and Cleo Holmes (AL); and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.
