Gannite Jamal McGregor Obituary

Mr. Gannite Jamal McGregor, affectionately known as “Jam”, began to shine on July 31, 1985, born to Gannite O. and Juliette McGregor in Talladega, Alabama. He entered into eternal rest on March 17, 2024.

Jamal confessed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and united with Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Sylacauga, AL where he actively served as drummer and choir member.

Jamal found his spiritual home under the leadership of Sunlight Missionary Baptist Church in Eastaboga, AL.

He received his education from B.B. Comer Memorial Elementary and graduated from B. B. Comer Memorial High School in 2002. He furthered his education and graduated from Central Alabama Community College.
