My life changed forever on June 27, 2020: I received a phone call that my son had been shot. Of course I thought he would be OK, but as I was on my way to him, I got the call that he didn’t make it. The pain and hurt that went through my entire body was one I don’t wish on anyone.
Jamarcus leaves behind a four-year-old daughter and family and friends that love and miss him daily. To help me with my grief and to leave a legacy in honor of Jamarcus, I started the Live Like JU Foundation, which gives back to the community and is getting involved with gun violence awareness.
