Joyce, Jaeden Lee

Obituary

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Jaeden Joyce (JJ), age 20 our most beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed on October 16, 2020.

Those who knew Jaeden, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.

Jaeden will be missed everyday by his mother, Kayla; brothers, Zachery and Easton; grandparents, Steve and Donna, Karen and Tim as well his loving aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many great friends.

Jaeden grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota and later moved to Frisco, Texas. He attended Liberty High School and was working as an airplane mechanic until earlier this year.  Jaeden was working on joining the military to serve a bigger purpose to help others and give his brother, Easton his G.I bill for college.

His decision to take his own life – a life of so much accomplishment and promise – was completely unexpected and shocked everyone who knew him.

Since Jaeden’s death, many have written about how special he was and how fortunate they were to have known him. They recall how he served as a leader and always brought a smile to their face, even if they did not want to. Jaeden loved to go fishing, being outdoors, working on his car or motorcycle, help others in any capacity and be a handyman. Jaeden had a heart of gold and from a young age wanted to protect and provide for others.

They marvel at his encyclopedic knowledge of music and playing any kids of music without hesitation.

They reminisce about his ever-present smile and the warmth, depth and intelligence behind it.

Most of all, they recall the sheer pleasure of his company, how good he made them feel, how free they were to be themselves around him, and how much they will miss him.

Jaeden cared about people in the purest way. He loved them for who they were and because he wished the best for them, without guile and without asking anything in return.

As one of his close friends said of driving with Jaeden he would always say “But did you die” joking as they are riding in the car or on the motorcycle.  Jaeden was a truly delightful, generous, easy-going, fun-loving human being.”

Jaeden had so much goodness, so much capacity to bring happiness to others and such a bright future. The world is a lesser place without him.

Do not be afraid to reach out if you are struggling. We love you and want you here.

Services for Jaeden will be held on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Preston Trail Church, 8055 Independence Parkway, Frisco, Texas 75035.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
