A memorial service for beloved and respected community philanthropist and social crusader Jaylene Moseley will be conducted Saturday, June 8 at 3 p.m. on the grounds of the Rose Bowl.

Moseley died on May 25 from cancer, one day before her 70th birthday.

The memorial is scheduled to be led by Daniel Torres, new Interim Director of the Flintridge Center, the nonprofit Moseley helped to found.

Moseley was the longtime President of Flintridge Center when she passed away.

A program is planned for Saturday with about 10 speakers who are family members and who represent the community in different ways, according to a Flintridge Center representative.

A number of civic leaders and community members whose lives were positively impacted by Moseley plan to attend including State Senator Anthony Portantino, Assemblymember Chris Holden and Pasadena Police Chief John Perez, all of whom are expected to speak.

For three decades, Moseley was a fixture of public life in Pasadena and Altadena. Her work mixed the worlds of business and nonprofit community activism in ways that each supported and strengthened the other in a constructive synergy.

She founded the J. L. Moseley Co., which developed and managed commercial real estate in Northwest Pasadena and Altadena, and was a founding member of Flintridge Center, which offers hope and opportunities to high-risk, high-need circumstances local residents.

“Her life’s work and her business investments exemplified her values and her commitment to Northwest Pasadena and Altadena in a manner that few people if any match,” Portantino remembers.

He also her sincerity and dedication.

“She also did her good works with the overwhelming goal of making a positive change with no interest in the limelight or accolade,” he said.

“Jaylene was a shining symbol of selfless dedication,” echoed Holden.

“Jaylene had the ability to light up a room with her smile and charisma.  The vision and heart she carried for our community lives on within the many lives she impacted through the years.”

“She was a treasure to our community,” Holden said, “and will never be forgotten.”
The Flintridge Center announcement said the memorial service will be located in the West Locker Room, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena, and run from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The closest parking is in Rose Bowl parking lot near Gate F. Check in and sign in will be at Gate A.  Signs will direct attendees to the Celebration of Life.

In lieu of flowers or cards, the Moseley family asks that individuals consider a donation in Moseley’s memory to support the work of Flintridge Center. Click here for more.
