A memorial service for community members and her friends to celebrate the life and legacy of Jaylene Moseley will be held at the Rose Bowl on June 8 at 3 p.m., the Board of the Flintridge Center announced yesterday.

Moseley, a beloved and respected community philanthropist and social activist who was longtime President of nonprofit Flintridge Center, died on May 25 from cancer, one day before her 70th birthday.

Flintridge Center is asking community members who have “any photos of Jaylene you would like to share,  please send them to desirae@flintridge.org by Tuesday, June 4th.”

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.

Moseley 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.

“Jaylene was a shining symbol of selfless dedication,” remembers Pasadena area Assemblymember Chris Holdem who is a former Pasadena City Councilmember.

“We first met in 1985 working together on the Fair Oaks Avenue Project Area Committee-tasked with revising the revitalization efforts for northwest Pasadena.  Her sensitivity to the communities frustration from decades of government neglect, was sincere and passionate. She committed the next 34 years making the lives of everyone from students to former incarcerated feel valued,” Holden said.

The Flintridge Center’s Board said in a statement following Moseley’s death that “all of us have been touched in some way by Jaylene’s all-consuming dedication to making our community a place that is free from the cycles of violence and poverty, and it has been our honor and privilege to work beside her, and under her gentle leadership, in trying to make that dream a reality.”

“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.
