Caddo Superintendent & students remember Southwood senior, Jaylin Sloan

SHREVEPORT, La - Jaylin Sloan's classmates say he will be best remembered for his smile and outgoing personality.  Sloan was a senior at Southwood High School.

Monday Shreveport police responded to a single car crash on Flournoy Lucas.  Sloan had been ejected from his vehicle after his car left the roadway.  He was transported to University Health with life threatening injuries before he died Wednesday. 

Sloan's friend, Trevonte McIntyre says they just went to homecoming together before this tragedy.

"Jaylin, that was like my brother.  We was real close.  We talked everyday about any and everything.  I mean, he would just bring your day up and he had a big smile and I really loved that boy, man.  He was my brother."

Superintendent of Caddo Schools, Dr. Lamar Goree released the following statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Jaylin’s family as well as Southwood and our extended Caddo family. Jaylin had a heart for his church and loved his family including his two brothers with all his heart. He had dreams of graduating from Southwood this year and pursuing a degree in criminal justice at Grambling State University in the hopes of becoming a police detective. Our hearts are heavy at the loss of Jaylin, a child who was deeply involved in his community and wanted to give back in service to others.”
