In memory of Quamel Jarelle Anderson Meezy's Way

My son’s name is Quamel J. Anderson. He was born on January 13, 1991. He was 28 years old when he was killed by gun violence a few blocks from his home in the Bronx.

April 3, 2019, forever changed my life. My son was a new father to a baby girl named Miracle Anderson, who was only two years old when he was killed. The person who killed him was someone who he had considered a friend. His friend spent many days and nights at his house with his then fiancé and her kids.

The man who killed him was caught three weeks after his murder and has been in jail for over four years. We’ve been going to court for that long as well, praying for justice. On June 22, after many unfortunate delays, my family experienced yet another letdown. After we completed our impact statements, on what was supposed to be the last day, the defense attorney made such a grave mistake that the judge dismissed him from the case. This caused the case to be started all over again. That day hurt me and my family and friends immensely.

We’re still fighting for Justice 4 Quamel!
