Jenkins was born on Nov. 25, 1991, at Sidney, the son of Greg and Marcy (Dickenson) Jenkins.
He attended schools in Sidney and was a sophomore at Sidney High School where he was a member of the basketball team, which he not only enjoyed but also had a gift for the sport, according to family members. He also spent a lot of time at the community center where lifting weights became a passion as well as hanging out with friends.
Jenkins had many favorite pastimes ranging from football to movies. He especially enjoyed the Michigan blue and gold, said family members.
He enjoyed the outdoors and going on many trips with his dad hunting and camping, and going four-wheeling with his mom and sister.
Jenkin’s style was truly always his own, from his dress, laugh, sense of humor and expressions of love, affection, dreams and lifestyle as well as who he was and who he could have been, the family said.
