Throughout his career as a chef, his passion for food reflected in every dish that he created. Jairus was employed as a Sous/Saute’ Chef in a variety of fine dining restaurants throughout Philadelphia and Nashville. He enjoyed hours of watching ”Hell’s Kitchen” which he would bark out orders, giving them instructions on what to do.

His motto in life was, “Don’t cheat yourself, treat yourself.” Jairus is survived both parents, Janice Beasley (Nashville, TN), Gregory Doss (East St. Louis, IL), sister Janelle Beasley (Nashville, TN), Tramia Royston (East St. Louis, IL) and Ebony Doss (Atlanta, GA), his nearest and dearest cousins, Chris Hibbler (deceased) and Cortez Hibbler (East St. Louis, IL) and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
