  4. Hello I’m savannah Thomas, Jessie Thomas’s sister. I’m glad they were able to stay such close friends even after high school as we moved across town after our junior year at scioto.
    Having a solid friend now a days isn’t easy but they’ve made it happen. I just hate that we lost a good one but I’m glad they all got each other to lean on

  5. My sincerest condolences to Stephons mother, Rhonda and his beautiful Children, as well as the rest of his family and friends. My heart broke when I read about Stephon’s passing. I remember staying up with him and my children, cooking, baking, and making up dance routines until sometimes past 2:00 in the morning(boy, he loved to dance). Sometimes it would just be me and Stephon dancing because the other kids tapped out; he would have danced until the sun came up if I let him, but he’d hear his mamma’s car pull up and his butt would run up the stairs to get in his bed and pretend like he was asleep. He wanted to learn how to slow dance so he could dance with a girl at school, so we spent hours practicing. Back then, Stephon just liked everyone, he was always kind and happy and the little things in life brought him joy. Reading all of his friend’s posts, it appears he never changed( he still Loved to dance, was kind to all, and remained happy ) and I’m so thankful he enjoyed and relished the 34 years of life he lived! He was taken from this world too early, but God must have needed him for something amazing. Rest In Peace Stephon.

    and was truly kind to all.

    Oh so sad and shocking to hear this. Stephon was a classmate and close friend to my two sons, Corry King and Larry King Jr. when we lived in Dublin Ohio. My prayers are with his family at this very sad time.

  7. There are no words to console anyone on the loss of a child. I know he was also much more, a father and so much more to those who knew and loved him. The family is in my prayers. May God grant you peace at this difficult time.

  8. Rest In Peace my friend!!
