Jacy Marley Kadison-Marshall was born June 21, 1981 in Denver, Colorado to Phyllis Ayn Kadison and Westwood Keith Marshall. He was welcomed home by his older sister Rashanda Selene.
Jacy had an inner beauty and a sparkling smile. He was a gentle, caring soul who radiated sweetness and love. That precious quality of making you feel good, feel special, touched everyone’s hearts and endeared him to all who knew him. As Maya Angelou said “… people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Jacy loved cooking, white water rafting, baseball, crafting poetic messages, and the Broncos. His sense of humor and love of laughter were infectious. He made you smile from your heart.
Like his father, Jacy nourished people’s souls through his awesome talent of nourishing people’s bodies. Jacy proudly worked in some of Denver’s finest restaurants. Like his mother, he possessed the special gifts of kindness, generosity, loyalty, and an open heart that brought him the love and devotion of many friends and coworkers.
He will be missed by his sister Rashanda Selene and nephew Mekhi Chase; aunts Karen, Grace, Phillipa, and Sofia; uncles Victor and Rudy; cousins Alana, Rachel, Max, Shaska, Dejon, and numerous other cousins; girlfriend Olivia; and dear childhood friend Sofia, along with an extraordinary amount of friends. He will also be missed by his siblings Nicole, Maithland, and Kenya. He is preceded by his beloved uncle Bruce and brother Anthony.
He will forever be in our hearts.
