Jaden “J-Dogg” Donovan James Bowman, 14, of Waterloo, Indiana passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 19, 2023. He was born on January 7, 2009, in Auburn, Indiana to Marissa A. Fairchild and Anthony J. Bowman.
Jaden attended Dekalb Middle School. Jaden enjoyed cool exotic cars, video games, technology, riding BMX bikes and showing off the new tricks he learned. Jaden was a boujee little man, dressed to impress. He loved his dog Athena, Playing Forza, his cell phone and his shoe collection. Jaden, with his beautiful smile and contagious laugh, was also a ladies’ man and really smooth with the girls. Above all, Jaden was very sweet, often goofy, adventurous, loving, and was very protective of his friends, family (especially his little sisters) and loved ones. Those who knew Jaden, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. We love and miss you so much my son XOXO.
