He tried for so long to help people see the vision. He touched my life by making a positive impact that will be felt for...

Jihad, was a good and intelligent brother. He was a classmate of mine's in the Executive Ph. D. Program at Jackson State University. Since August, 2011 we, along with our other cohort members, made the pilgrimage monthly to pursue the doctorate degree in Higher Education Administration.
Jihad was a scholar dedicated to making the world better. More importantly, he was my good friend!
My sincerest condolences to his family.
