Precious Jean Holliday


Precious J. Holliday passed away at the tender age of 26, with her loving mother by her side.

Precious, affectionately known as “Presh”, was born in Columbus, Ohio. She was not only one of three children, she was also the eldest and served as her two younger brothers “Momma Too”.

Precious attended Linden McKinley S.T.E.M. Academy in Columbus, Ohio. During that time, she enjoyed participating in various activities including choir and the after-school program UBUNTU, volunteering throughout the community for three years. Upon successfully graduating, she then went to The University of Southern Indiana. After college, Precious began her career as a manager with Chipotle for two years. Then began her career as a team member with Amazon.

Precious had many hidden talents, that only a select few knew about. She loved to sing, especially in the car, where she shared epic moments of “car karaoke” with her mom. She had a knack for designing clothes and sewing, which she clearly got from her grandmother, “B.B.”. Precious was a self-taught makeup artist, that loved to experiment with colors and techniques. She also had a passion for the arts and drawing, which lead her to the Congressional Art Competition, where she had the pleasure of meeting Congresswoman Joyce Beatty.

Precious served as a member of Triedstone Missionary Baptist church, under the leadership of Bishop Jerome H. Ross Sr., where she ministered in the Mime Ministry. She enjoyed and LOVED spending time with her family. She often reflected on past holidays spent sitting at “The Cool Kids” table. Precious was the type of person who never met a stranger. This is just a small glimpse into who she truly was as a person. To know her was to love her! She will forever be GeronimoGoesLiveWitDat5950
