Jovan Lamont Injema Khan
September 18, 2006 ~ October 30, 2023 (age 17) 17 Years Old
Jovan Lamont Injema Khan was born to his mother, Emerald Khan, on September 18, 2006, in Washington, D.C.
Jovan began his early education in the local Montessori School network continuing his lower school education at First Baptist Dallas. Jovan transitioned to upper school in the STEM Charter School system at Harmony Science Academy. He later matriculated to Harmony School of Innovation. He was loved by his teachers and classmates from the beginning to the end of his educational journey. Jovan was set for college readiness where his interests were focused on majoring in Biosciences with a focus on either Bioengineering or Biochemistry. His love for science existed as a young child. With a solid village of family and mentorship surrounding him, he had become a great young scientist.
Jovan proved that he was a high achiever over the years. He started golfing at 8; 3-D printing at 10; and exploring his path to coding in the multiverse and using programs such as Python at 11. He earned his 3rd Degree at the black belt level at 13; sat as an official city council member at 15; and piloted a plane at 16. At 17, Jovan was looking forward to his upcoming college immersive experience at Huston Tillotson, a Texas HBCU near Austin. With great anticipation, he looked forward to graduating in the class of 2024 at Harmony School of Innovation.
Jovan’s will be fondly remembered for his inquisitive and joyful personality. His impact will be lasting on all of God's creatures that he encountered through this life.
Jovan’s legacy of integrity and having a kind and strong character will continue through the village of his mother, Emerald Khan; his grandparents, Ericilda & Keith Coleman and Injema & Tammy Khan; his great-grandparents; his many aunts, uncles, cousins, mentors, teachers, friends, and extended family; and his vast network of people who have interacted with him.
May Jovan’s legacy live on forever.
