Jaden Knox is a 16 year-old, 10th grade student at Roberto Clemente Community Academy in Humboldt Park on the West side of Chicago. Jaden is working to finish High School with an A/B record, attend UCLA to study business, and eventually become a music producer helping to create music that inspires others.

Jaden is Captain of the competitive Roberto Clemente Drumline. He enjoys mentoring and tutoring 1st – 3rd grade students at By The Hand Club for Kids – a faith-based program serving inner city youth. Jaden also volunteers monthly by helping to serve hot and brown bag meals to Chicago’s homeless with City Point Community Church.

Jaden’s teacher has described him as “dependable” with strong “mental organization.” Jaden is “most pleasant to be around and ready to take on new challenges. He is coachable and loving and looks forward to achieving goals he sets. Jaden is a genuine blessing to any environment and it’s an absolute pleasure to get to experience life with him.”
