Jahvon is also a prominent member of the illustrious “Jelly Fam”. The Jelly Fam is comprised of a group of prospects within the Tri-state area that have transcended the culture of basketball. Their movement has spread on a national stage and with members playing at the collegiate level they look to gain more notoriety and inspire the youth. The members in Jelly Fam: Ja’Quaye James (Teaneck HS), Isaiah Washington (UofMinn), Sid Wilson (UConn), Jordan Walker (Seton Hall), Leondre Washington (Robert Morris U), Jahvon Quinerly (Hudson Catholic) Pedro Marquez (Erie CC), and Melicia Reid (Ole Miss). The Jelly Fam movement has created a reputable brand, and will be focal point of NYC hoops for years to come.
"Overtime" got an exclusive interview with Jahvon as he update them with the history of the “Jelly Fam’ movement and potential goals of their "hoop fraternity". He never expected the movement to be acknowledged on a national scale and still doesn’t believe the impact it has on a community. He gives away tips on how to join their hoop fraternity as they look to expand with new members in the near future. Jahvon is currently ranked in ESPN's Top 10 guards, and sits at #26 overall. He will continue to paved the way for Hackensack as he hope to play in the NBA one day. Here is a message to the hoops community “ Work on your game and jelly at your own risk”
