Jada Shadron-Drake was born April 23, 2000, in Albuquerque. Jada had such a generous heart and free-loving spirit and loved being around family and friends. Jada passed away March 22, 2022, to unfortunate circumstances.
She is proceeded in death by her father, Fred A. Drake, of Albuquerque; uncle, Jason A. Shadron, of Los Lunas; grandparents, Fred Drake, of Farmington, and Charlene Bryant, of Los Lunas.

The Shadron and Drake family kindly and appreciates all the prayers, time, donations and most of all love for Jada. She will be missed dearly by those who knew her briefly and especially by those who loved her as her time was brief on this Earth, as was her favorite lead singer from the band, Sublime. “It’s hard to keep my soul on the ground.”
