Mia Jaye Was Born In The ’80s
Mia Jaye was born on April 15, 1989, in Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. Her birth sign is Aries and she belongs to the African-American ethnic group. The entrepreneur is an American citizen by birth and heritage.
The identity of her parents are not known and there is also no information about what they do or did for a living. However, Mia credits her mom for being her biggest inspiration and has shared a picture of them together on her Instagram page.
Mia Jaye is the youngest of three children born to her parents with the other two being her currently unidentified older brothers. The podcast host spent most of her life in Michigan where she reportedly acquired basic formal education from an unnamed private school. She then went on to attend the University of Memphis from where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Real Estate Finance in 2012.
Mia Jaye Was Not Married To Young Dolph
In spite of the fact that Mia Jaye and the late Young Dolph were in a happy relationship, they were not married to each other. It was, however, something they were planning toward before the tragic death of the rapper.
After leaving the university, Mia Jaye started working with a boutique commercial real estate firm and sources close to the entrepreneur claim that she met Young Dolph for the first time when she was a staff of the company. But the exact timeline of this meeting is not known at the moment.
Information about when the couple became an item is also unavailable even though there has been speculations from various sources that they began dating officially in 2014. The relationship lasted until the late rapper’s rather brutal and untimely death at the hands of shooters, who have been arrested and charged for the crime, on November 17, 2021.
The Mother of Two Still Lives In Memphis, Tennessee
Prior to his death, Mia and her late boyfriend lived in Memphis, Tennessee as a family with the two children they had been blessed with. Their first child, a son they named Tré, was born in June 2014 and was around 7 years old at the time his father, Young Dolph, passed.
Almost three years after the birth of Tré, the family welcomed another child, this time, a daughter named Ari. She was born in on February 25th, 2017 and was around 4 years old when her father was murdered.
Family was everything to Young Dolph and even though he rarely posted them on his social media pages, he was seriously involved in their upbringing which is a commitment that Mia was eternally grateful for. Since his death, Mia Jaye has maintained full custody of the children and done her best to take care of them and give them the best that life has to offer.
The social activist still lives in Memphis, Tennessee with her two children and is doing her best to adjust to the new reality of living without the care, companionship, and partnership of a long-term partner whose value remains immeasurable in her opinion.
Mia Jaye Launched A Campaign Against Violent Crime
No one would get any points for speculating that Young Dolph’s senseless death took a toll on Mia Jaye. Speaking in an interview a few months after the late rapper’s murder, Mia Jaye made it clear that the people responsible had literally stolen her future and that she was still trying to balance things out by being strong for her children and for herself.
She stated that losing the late rapper has forced her to shoulder the responsibilities of raising their kids right and showing them the right path alone. She added that it was something that would have been far easier to achieve if Young Dolph were alive and also stated that it is a task that has now been made tougher with the rapper’s death.
Mia Jaye draws strength and encouragement from the “Black Men Deserve To Grow Old” campaign, a campaign she ironically launched after the death of her own brother who was killed by yet another shooter in May 2020 while he was working as a car salesman. She launched the campaign in a bid to curb gun violence or any other related violent crimes in the black community.
The campaign was also designed to provide support and encouragement for her little brother’s family and other similar black families who have experienced the pain of losing fathers, brothers, and husbands to violent crimes. She can now count herself among the beneficiaries of the project she initiated.
Mia Jaye Is An Entrepreneur And An Author
Even before she lost Young Dolph, Mia had gradually become a force to be reckoned with in the retail fashion business world. Recall that after graduating from the university, she worked with a boutique real estate firm for a little over 2 years before leaving to establish her own business in 2015.
The business mogul established her own fashion brand which is now known globally as MOM.E.O. This brand caters to the fashion idiosyncrasies of black culture. The entrepreneur also has her own podcast called Jaye’s Toolbox where she discusses everything from fashion to the issue of violence in black communities.
Mia has also added the title of author to her resumé after she self-published her first children’s book in December 2015. The book is titled No Way Tré You Can’t Have Your Way: Food Instead Of Junk Food Today.
She is also a blossoming Instagram influencer. Her IG handle @iammiajaye has over 363k followers. She posts engaging content like her fashion tips and some personal images of herself and family members including her ex-partner and the late rapper, Young Dolph, and her children as well.
Mia Jaye has achieved a very impressive measure of financial success as a result of her hard work and dedication to her craft. She has a net worth that is currently estimated to be around $2 million – $3 million
