JaLisa LaShonna Rivers was born November 25, 1990 in Moreno Valley, CA to Julia Rivers, Clyde Brown, and "father in love" John G. Patton.
JaLisa was a sweet reserved young woman who loved everything about art especially drawing, she was a huge fan of WWE, and loved children. She always looked forward to attending her bi-annual family reunions because she knew she would create everlasting memories with her “Kinfolks”.
JaLisa started her educational journey in Moreno Valley, CA at Edgemont Elementary, she then relocated to Daingerfield, TX where she attended West Elementary, South Elementary, Daingerfield Jr High, and Daingerfield High School. She graduated class of 2008 then continued her education at Northeast Texas Community College where she earned her A.A. in Art. She then enrolled into The Art Institute of Dallas, soon after completing her 1st year JaLisa fell ill and had to return home due to her medical condition. JaLisa was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 4 and has battled the disease ever since. JaLisa's days were filled with good and bad nevertheless she always tried to put her best foot forward despite the constant pain she endured. From age 5 to 18 she attended Camp Sweeney which was a camp centered around children with type 1 diabetes, camp was an annual escape for JaLisa and she loved every moment of it. Camp taught her how to take care of herself and introduced her to some of her lifelong friends. The one person in this world JaLisa didn't play about was her mother who she adored so much they were 2 peas in a pod. JaLisa was blessed to have several parental figures in her life who cared deeply for her especially John G. Patton, Sherriff Jack Martin, Bob & Deb Scaff, Terell & Tolita Teddleton, and Glenn Sears. On November 16, 2019 JaLisa went to be with the Lord, she will be missed dearly.

JaLisa is survived by her parents Julia Rivers, Clyde Brown, John G. Patton; grandmother Dorothy Amelong; uncles James Jackson, Ronald Isaiah, Edward Hall, Terell Teddleton; aunts Mary Isaiah, Towdolyn Barkwell, Tonia Jones, Maurine Hall, Quine Hodge, Anna Moore, Jessie Walker, Juanita Rivers, Tolita Teddleton; & a host of cousins, family, & friends.

My cuz, we had a few secret plans for us to accomplish one day, you left me before we could do it..... even though you were my older cousin I was ya big cousin. We could spend any amount of time apart from each other but when we connect we go back to when we was kids... we fought like sisters till aunt Julie threatened to whoop us and even then we still would silent fight until one of us gave up which was always me😏 I let you win cause I wanted to play again.... I can still remember aunt Julie taking us to the wiggle as I called
It, to get us matching outfits to do our talent show in... I don’t care what anyone say we killed that show that year... little did we know we killed it cause we had to make my daddy laugh one more time before God called him back..... even though we was kids you was my rock during his whole homegoing you kept me strong, I cried in front of no one accept you free that we stuck together like glue.... you would hate it but I would hug you tight every time I seen you I didn’t care how much you fused at me I would hug you tighter until I felt
Like you knew I loved you then I would hug you again just to make sure..... I should of hugged you one more
Time.... I love you cuz, tell my daddy I said hi rest in aloha cuz
Forever your little big cuz leilei

Ja'lisa we use to stay right by each other in Daingerfield. We always played with each other. You were my best friend. I use to spend the night with you and we became very close. I'm so saddened by you leaving so early. Thank you for your friendship. Miss Julie, I'm sorry for your loss. My mom, Deborah, and I are extremely saddened. RIP sweet lady. You are forever in my heart.

I saw you walking away as we were leaving the Family Reunion JaLisa! I did a double take, little did I know that my eyes were recording the memory of your face. Little did I know this would be the last time I would see you on this side of Heaven. I think I hugged you tight, Lord knows I hope I held you tightly for a moment. Love never does Julia, I will Pray for you because only God can ease this great pain of the loss of your only child. God lent her to us for awhile. Rest in Peace JaLisa, God's got you know! Love you, Aunt Jessie

JaLisa was an amazing woman and a ideal friend. I met her at camp; her smile always brightened my day and lighten my spirits if it was rained on. I loved seeing her every year and seeing what adventures she went on. She was one of the most important person at camp for me, because she was my first person to lead on our "trust" walk. (bless her for trusting me so much) but this is a special honor and she let me be her leader through the tricky road with its ups and downs and silly turns, mimicking the life we live daily. I can still remember her jokes about what we were doing and how my heart swelled when we made it to the end. It is not as though we were in any real danger, but to walk this line like it we were and still making me laugh... I just cant put into words. JaLisa I love you and with tears I light my candle for you.

I taught Jalisa in grade school, and I am so sorry to hear about her passing. She was an awesome student, and my heart breaks for her dear mother, and family. Prayers to you all.
