North Chesterfield, Virginia


Aaron Jai McGirt, 20, of North Chesterfield, VA went to be with his Abuela on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. He was born on January 29, 2004 in The Bronx, New York to Ade Lateef and Myra Luz McGirt. Aaron was preceded in death by his big brother, Justin Ade McGirt and his beloved grandmother, Carmen Guzman.

When Aaron turned 4 months we got the most terrible news a parent can ever receive Aaron was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 1 the most severe. When Aaron was first diagnosed the doctors told us that Aaron would not live past 2 years old which he over came those odds. Aaron had many goals one which was to be the next mayor of Richmond City. The goals he did meet, were graduating high school, going to the Yankee’s stadium, and most importantly living to be 20 years old. Aaron had recently moved out and moved into a house with some roommates. He was a warrior, a fighter, a jokester, and a big movie person. Aaron was really passionate about politics and was soon to start a job in the Richmond City Counsel while also starting at VCU to earn his political science degree. You will forever be Mom and Dad’s Hero and Warrior.
