Reese Deveraux Grant-Cobb

July 20, 2000 ~ July 2, 2018 (age 17)


Reese Grant Cobb 17 of Denver Colorado 

When Reese was 4 year's old, he encountered for the first time someone who did not want to be his friend. His mother attempted to explain that not everyone he would meet in life would become his friend. Reese fervently exclaimed, "MOM SHE IS MY FRIEND, SHE JUST DOESN'T KNOW IT YET!

Reese attended elementary school at Polaris at Ebert where he was quick to make friends and clung to the notion that everyone is his friend. This is a trait that followed him throughout his life.

Reese was accepted to the Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) Middle School in where he would continue his education with the DSST Family by attending DSST Stapleton High School.  Reese attended all four years at DSST and was a graduate of the class of 2018. Reese was scheduled to attend the University of Northern Colorado where he planned to major in Bio-Medical Engineering. Reese was blessed with a kind heart and generous spirit. His smile and presence could light up any room. He had a genuine love for people and always looked beyond hate, racism and bigotry. He loved music and could create a play list or dedication in an instant. Reese always volunteered his time to help others. Reese was an integral part of the mo'betta green farmers market for which his mother is the founder and President. Reese was also known for being an empathetic listener and a compassionate problem solver. Reese was taken from this earth too soon.
