Jeron Lee Wright was born on October 10, 1999 to Yolanda Wright Longstreet(RIP) and Naron Lee Kitcheyan at Mt. Graham Hospital in Safford, AZ .Because Jeron was the youngest of 4 children, he was attached to his mom, loved her so much. He knew he was spoiled and did a good job in getting his older siblings in trouble. As they got into trouble he’d just smile as his mom carried him off to safety. Even as an infant he HAD to have 2 bottles when he went to bed.
He attended Bylas Head start then went on to Ft. Thomas Elementary School but had a rough time getting along with other students and would get sent home. Then by the tender age of 9, he was sent to a male group home for about 2-3 years in Mesa to get help along with many other juvenile boys. His mom would visit him monthly and she’d take him to buy whenever he wanted. As they began to leave Jeron would say “see you next month” and that was the hardest thing to do is leave him there.
Unfortunately a month after turning 12 in 2011 his mom passed due to a tragic car accident. He remained in Bylas and lived with his sister Andrea at grandma and grandpa’s house in RBC. Jeron went back to school at Ft. Thomas graduating from 8 th grade and on to high school up to 10th grade. He then we to the Bylas Alternative school but soon dropped out again.
Around the age of 16 he went to go live with his grandma Angie and again attempted to finish school but ended up dropping out once again. He went back to stay at RBC and for a bit then returned to his grandma Angie again and that was the beginning of the pandemic. He ensured she was taken care of, wore her mask and sanitized everything including groceries before taking them into the house. His past time then was playing his X-box.
Unfortunately in 2021 his grandmother Angie and Aunt Vanala “Kaye” was in a tragic car accident which took his grandma’s life and critically incurring his aunt. Jeron had to do for himself and would call his aunt even though she was hospitalized and get a step by step of doing thing including cooking. Family continuously encouraged him to do for himself and although he had a tough life, he always tried to make the best of it. He decided to go to re-hab and was there for about 8 months. His goal was to get his GED and then enlist in the US Army to follow his uncle Terold “Kane’s” footsteps.
Jeron is survived by his dad Naron Lee Kitcheyan, sister Andrea Wright, brother Jason Longstreet, uncles Danford Wright, Terold Wright, Kailyle Ray Moses and Sailyle Roy Moses and aunt Vanla Kaye
He’s preceded in death by his mom Yolanda Longstreet, grandmothers Angeline Moses, Linda Wright and grandfather Andy Wright.
