JENKINS, Michael Vincent, age 42, passed away on March 21, 2020. He was preceded in death in 2019 by his mother, Phyllis Anne Jenkins. He is survived by his son Jacob Jenkins of Beavercreek, OH, his father John D Jenkins, Miami Township, OH, his sister Michelle (Chad) Landis of Chicago, IL and two nieces Allison and Annemarie Landis, and many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins in the Dayton area and throughout the country. Mike enjoyed spending time with his son, reading, walking his dog, and watching sports especially Ohio State. Mike was an active partner at Shelter Church, Kettering Ohio for many years, where he was known for his early arrival for services on Sunday morning, assisting with the slides for services and his fellowship. He would come at a moment’s notice to assist the church with any need. The family is very grateful to his church for providing him a faith home, as well as the true kindness, love, and compassion, and friendship shown to Michael. Although we are not able to come together at this time, a Memorial Service will be held in the future. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations in his memory to Shelter Church of Dayton, OH 1441 E Dorothy Lane, Kettering, OH 45429 or donate online at https://shelterchurch.churchcenter.com/giving.

One of the last times me and Mike got to hang out we of course started out by meeting at Fricker’s for some wings then made our way over to the movie theatre. The movie we were seeing was “Joker” based off the insane villain from Batman. We were about halfway through the movie when Mike leans over and says “Man, and I thought we had problems.” If we weren’t the only ones in the theatre I am more than positive we would have been asked to leave for laughing so much. (like that time at Kroger but that’s another story.) He was my brother and one of my closest friends and I am going to miss him dearly.
