For years Ahwatukee Foothills sisters Ava and Ella Loew have watched their cousin perform in “The Nutcracker” ballet, but this year they’re making performing in the show a family affair.
Alexander Ryan Jones, 19, of Ahwatukee, passed away Nov. 21. He was born on Dec. 30, 1993 in Fayetteville, N.C. He moved to Ahwatukee in October of 2000. He attended Kyrene Cerritos, Estrella and Akimel schools, and was a 2012 graduate of Desert Vista High School where he played football. He was an active participant with Horizon Presbyterian Youth Group and participated in several mission trips. He was currently living and working in Dallas, Texas. He was getting ready to go to Iowa in February with AmeriCorps.
Eight years ago, my daughter Jasmine asked if she could audition for the Ahwatukee Foothills “Nutcracker” performance. She was new to the world of ballet and dance, but I relented, and she was thrilled to get parts as a Baby Mouse and a Mini Bon Bon. And the next thing I knew, her Saturday soccer games now had conflicts with “The Nutcracker” practice — called “rehearsals,” I was quickly corrected. I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.
