DonDrake Blackmoore - Killed front of 4yr old son

A parent’s worst nightmare is to lose a child. On Monday, Oct. 19 at approximately noon, the Blackmoore Family received devastating and heartbreaking news that has forever changed their lives – their loved-one; 26-year old, Mr. DonDrake “Dre” Blackmoore, along with his girlfriend and mother of his youngest child; 27-year old, Ms. Jakailah Jackson had been brutally murdered (shot to death just 4-days before DonDrake's 27th birthday) while driving on a busy street in Charlotte NC. Although their 4-year old son, was also in the car with them at the time of the shooting, the family is thankful and blessed that he was not physically injured during the incident.

The family has created this GoFundMe to cover the cost of Dre’s funeral expenses as well as help care for his two minor children (DonDrake, Jr, 7-years old and Carter, 4-years old). Both kids are under the love and care of their maternal grandmother (Talitha). Dre and Jakailah will both be funeralized the week of Oct 25th.

For make a donation, please follow the instructions on this GoFundMe page or cashapp Dre’s maternal grandmother (Mrs. Azalee Carothers Cloud at $AzaleeCloud).

In addition to being a wonderful and loving father to his two sons – DonDrake Jr., and Carter; Dre was also a genuinely loving and caring son and brother, who often helped his mother care for his brother (Javares) – who has Cerebral palsy. It was never uncommon to see him hanging out with his two sons, playing games, watching movies and spending quality father-son-time with them. To Dre, they were his world and he loved them with all his heart and soul. It is unfortunate that the family has had to share that the loving man/father/dad in their lives will no longer here with them.

We are thankful for the village within our family, friends, community, and around the world for the love and support being poured into our lives; and especially the lives of the children. Together, we will keep the memory of Dre and Jakailah alive.

Thank you in advance for all you do, especially your continued prayers of strength, comfort, and peace for the family, as well as your heartfelt donations. God bless you!
