Jestin was born December 27, 2001 in Orlando, Florida to Jacob McMurphy Sr. and Amanda Wright. He had lived in the Florida Panhandle since October of 2020, coming from Northeast Georgia. Jestin was of the Christian faith and often had his Bible in hand everywhere he went. His love was felt by all who knew him and he showed that love to others by helping those in need whenever he was able. Jestin worked in the Construction industry locally and thoroughly loved his work. He will be remembered for his love of music and the good vibes he put out to those around him. His free time was often spent near a body of water, fishing or swimming, or spending time with his family. Jestins’ heroic spirit will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
