He was born on June 21, 1999 in Brooklyn, New York. Dasean moved to St. Joseph, Missouri in 2014.
Dasean graduated from high school in April of 2017. He worked very hard and graduated ahead of schedule. His classmates all knew him as the class clown and no matter what you were going through he could always make you smile.
Dae Dae loved basketball and music. He had a dream of being a rapper someday. He enjoyed listening to anything by Tupac, Nas or Biggie Smalls for inspiration for his next rap song.

Dasean brought life and laughter to anyone’s day and we will miss him every day from this moment forward.
