Carmia Tang

In memory of Jeremy Alexander Tang

My name is Carmia Tang. My only child was born September 22, 1996. My only child was murdered September 3, 2017.

Jeremy loved football, water polo, dancing and cooking. He was a honor roll student at Miles College in Alabama. He received a $2500 scholarship from The United Negro College Fund. That was one of my proudest moments as a parent.

Jeremy was found with a gunshot wound to the chest in his vehicle. He died at Christ Hospital in Oaklawn, Illinois. The case has remained unsolved.

They took so much from me. I will never be a grandparent. I will never see my child get his college degree.

I wanted to share my story because so many people are affected.

I love you Jeremy.
