Photos posted on his Facebook page show that late Jerry was a member
of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
According to Jackson, after playing the guitar like never before, Jerry
laid down at the altar for the worship session. After the session,
everyone stood up except the deceased. They lifted him only
to find out that he was dead.
“He wasn’t sick. His mum said he has gone to be with the lord that
God has called him, that he died on the altar while worshipping God,
that the way he played yesterday (The Bass Guitar) he has never played
like that before that he Knelt down worshipping and later lay down
till after the worship everyone was up but he was still there before
they came to raise him up and found out he’s gone 2 rest with the Lord.
RIP bro Jay Ray Maya aka E-Major. 4ever in my mind.”
Another friend, Beckley Marokuty Miles, however, said that the
young man ‘slumped’ and died in church. He described late Jerry as
an upright Christian, who lived a life worthy of emulation.
“He slumped and died in church. Jerry was such an upright Christian who
lived a life worthy of emulation. I want to quickly remind us of the
scripture that says…we should not mourn like the people of the world
when a believer dies. Jerry has gone to be with the Lord,” he said.
