He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas to the proud parents of Bryan Luwatis Price and Beverly Regine Johnson. Jar’Veez received his name months before he was born. The inside family joke a the time of his mother’s pregnancy was “the jar is about to open” so he was affectionally called “Jar”.
He slept peacefully making his grand entrance into eternity to the promised land on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, at his home. Jar’Veez professed his life to Christ at a very young age and was a faithful member of Saint James A.M.E. Church in Sparkman, Arkansas. He loved attending church and participating in church services.

After high school, he attended Southern Arkansas University Tech in East Camden, Arkansas. He was formerly employed by Georgia Pacific in Gurdon, Arkansas, and Lockheed Martin in East Camden, Arkansas.
He was a loving, caring, kind, and friendly person who always displayed his impeccable smile. He dearly loved his mother, sister, family, and friends. Jar was loved by many. Outgoing and always happy, he was never hard to please. Everyone knew when Jar’Veez was in the room it would be an amazing time.
