Please Help the Dawson Family

Hello Everyone,

Early in the afternoon on Sunday, October 6th, our family member Jennifer Dawson was involved in a fatal car accident which resulted in the death of her daughter Shaneeka Pittman, 28, along with her two granddaughters A'iana Dodson, 5 and Trinidi Dawson, 4. Jennifer survived the accident, but sustained major injuries and is currently recovering in the hospital.

Jennifer currently holds the title of Correction Officer, certified LPN, certified Pastry Chef, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend and is truly one of God's angels. The world is a better place because of Jennifer "“ both because of the time she gave to her country while serving in the United States Army and because of her generous spirit that gives freely with no expectation of anything in return. Her two children, Shaneeka and Brian Jr., along with her granddaughters A'iana and Trinidi are and were "the light of her life" and the reasons for her passion and drive. Jennifer treasured the time she spent with her family and spent her days off sharing her love of baking with her granddaughters, teaching them the importance of family as only a grandmother can. And now, she faces a reality that no parent or grandparent should ever have to face "“ burying not only her daughter, but also her two granddaughters whose lives were cut tragically short by this accident. We have included some pictures we would like to share
with you of the precious memories of Jennifer and her loved ones.

On behalf of Jennifer Dawson, we have created The Dawson Family Fund to help her offset the expenses of burying her beloved daughter and two granddaughters as well as help to cover any medical expenses she may incur as she faces the challenges of her own recovery.

We are asking each and every one of you to find the same generous spirit that Jennifer gave the world on a daily basis in your hearts and donate to The Dawson Family Fund. If you are not able to donate, we please ask that you continue to keep our family in your prayers and pray that God provides Jennifer with peace that surpasses all understanding.

We truly appreciate all of the efforts that have been initiated on behalf of Jennifer. Thank you for all of your support!
