Jaiden Alexander Marshall was born on May 9, 2001. He is the son of Amber and Jeremy Marshall, and has a younger sister named Chloe. He has attended Temple for four years, and participates in bowling. His favorite part of high school is the friends he has made.
Jaiden doesn’t currently attend a church. His favorite Bible verse is Titus 1:7-14 which says, “Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. One of Crete’s own prophets has said it: “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.” This saying is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith and will pay no attention to Jewish myths or to the merely human commands of those who reject the truth.” If he could spend the day with any celebrity or famous person, Jaiden says it would be Samuel L. Jackson, because he “is an amazing actor and I would like to ask him how he does so well in almost every role he is put in.”
Jaiden plans to go to college and enter the workforce after high school. His dream is to open a business of his own. Jaiden’s advice to underclassmen it to “get your work done by any means necessary without cheating.” He also says that the part about Temple that has affected his life the most is the friendships and relationships he has formed.
Congratulations, Jaiden! We’re so excited to see what God had planned for your life!
