Jason Emmanuel Brown

September 12, 1986 — June 24, 2023

Los Angeles

Jason Emmanuel Brown entered this world on September 12, 1986, to the loving parents Anita and James “Tutti” Brown. Known to family and friends as “Lil Tutti”, “Smooth” or “Chop,” he quickly made his presence known to establish a strong, loving, and confident personality. Jason was born in Compton, California at Dominguez Valley Hospital, and was the 2nd to the youngest child. Soon after his arrival home, his personality began to flourish. As he began to grow, he displayed signs of leadership, inquisitiveness, and mischievousness. Even as a busy body, he knew right from wrong. Jason accepted Christ at a young age and was baptized by his grandfather, the late Rev. L.C. Davis.


When Jason began elementary school, it was apparent that he was evolving into his own person, a very outgoing and athletic young man. He attended McNair Christian Academy in Compton, California, where he quickly developed many friendships. He played flag football and was very good at it. During this time, Jason inherited the love of riding motorcycles. He would ride with his dad “Tutti” who was the President of the Soul Brothers Motorcycle Club, Los Angeles Chapter. **Fun Fact: “Lil Tutti” had his first ride on a motorcycle with his dad when he was only two months old. Can you imagine??? His mom stated that all she could remember was being a nervous wreck!!


After elementary school, Jason was enrolled in Compton Unified School District and attended Roosevelt Middle School. During his middle school tenure, he discovered that basketball was his favorite sport. He was a proud member of the Roosevelt Lions Basketball Team. After middle school, Jason attended and graduated from Compton High School where he also was a member of the Compton High School Tarbabes Basketball Team.


Jason had many hobbies. He loved music and was musically inclined. He could produce, engineer and rap. Jason recorded several songs. His most memorable was “Half Baked” and it featured his dad, his sister Tahira and his brother Akil. In these times of social media, one could logon to Instagram at various times of the day and find Jason on Live listening to music (mostly oldies or Suga Free, IFYKYK) singing, rapping or just vibing.


Jason found happiness in riding dirt bikes and as he matured, he skillfully built them as well. Building and racing dirt bikes became one of his most fulfilling hobbies. He was well known in the minibike community as “Chop” and was a member of the Ridaz Only minibike club. He and his family recently relocated to Arizona. Distance would not stop him from traveling early Sunday mornings from Arizona to California or Sunday Funday. Jason and his crew could be found riding and racing in the industrial areas of Southern California. It was a joy to see him while he was in his element!


Jason’s love for minibikes did not over-shadow his love of motorcycles. Within the past several months he decided to follow in the footsteps of his father “Tutti” and began the journey to become a member of the Soul Brothers Motorcycle Club, Arizona Chapter. He was so excited about this new Chapter of his life. He spent many days and nights at the clubhouse. If you held a conversation with him for a few minutes he would educate you on the history of the club, his dad’s legacy, and his most recent on-the-ground experiences. He also made it clear that he was earning his colors and in honor of his dad, his club-name was Tutti, spelled “2UTTI”! HE WAS A PROUD SOUL BROTHER!


Jason was also an entrepreneur, as he came from a family of hard-working people and entrepreneurs. He was skillful at things that required the use of his hands i.e., repairing and constructing and additionally a great craftsman. He had the ability to turn a moment into a laugh. He had the gift of gab…. Hence the name “Mac Smooth.” He had a natural kind of heart and if he said he had your back, he stood on his word. Jason was a loyal friend who had the knack for helping and supporting others. Jason was the patriarch of his family and he led with dignity and earned respect. He was fearless! When it came to cars, minibikes and motorcycles, Jason loved the adrenalin rush! If you got into the car with him, you’d better buckle up because you were in for the ride of your life!


Out of all Jason’s loves, the most important was the love of family. Jason was a father of 2 talented sons Jamel Brown and Jaylen Curry. Jason met his significant other, Unique Simpson in 207 and they have been inseparable since their first encounter. They are the parents of a beautiful daughter Janai Brown and will soon be welcoming another precious daughter Jynasis Brown.


On June 24, 2023, Jason was doing one of the things which brought him so much joy. He was riding his Harley Davidson Road Glide and representing the Soul Brothers Motorcycle Club. Heaven’s gates opened and Jason passed the ultimate finish line transitioning from this life to the next. He was welcomed by his father James “Tutti” Brown, his mother Anita “Nita” brown and his brother Amir Brown.


Jason leaves his everlasting imprint upon the lives of his significant other, Unique Simpson, sons, Jamel Brown & Jaylen Curry, daughters Janai & Jynasis (unborn) Brown, brothers, Jermaine Treggs, Akil Brown and Alvis Pitts, sisters Jessica (Albert Therance), Tahira and Aleetha Brown, aunts, Lorna Herrington, Shirley Williams, Shelia Brown and Curtisa Seymore-Baker, cousins, Kendell, Geoffrey, Ebonee, and Essence, special friends Dino, Six, Lock, Smooth and Heavy, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended family and friends.
