On the night of Saturday June 4th, 2016 tragedy struck and as a result of senseless gun violence we lost a beautiful life in Alexandra Jonette Dean. Alexandra had just graduated from Nova Southeastern University earning her Bachelors in Nursing and was studying intensely to take the state board exam to become licensed as a Registered Nurse. Alex was also a recent initiate into the Sigma Chi chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. She was very proud of this accomplishment and was looking forward to continuing to contribute to her organization's mission of service to humanity even after graduation. Those of you that know Alex closely may also know that she lost her grandfather exactly one week prior to her passing and was heartbroken that she was unable to travel to Jamaica sooner to be with him in his last days. The emotional burden that Alexandra's mother, who is a Registered Nurse is carrying with the loss of her own father and daughter within a week is more than most of us would dare to imagine. Any contribution regardless of size would be greatly appreciated, as it would help minimize the unexpected financial burden her mother and father are also facing with this loss. Thank you all in advance and God bless you and your gifts .
