D'Janeira Mason, 12, of Van Buren Street died tragically on Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020, at her home. Born Sept. 5, 2008 in Kingston; she is the daughter of Aleshia Keener and the late Kevin Mason. A seventh grade student at J. Watson Bailey Middle School, D’Janeira was such a loving and bubbly girl, adored by so many people! There was never a day that went by that she wasn’t helping anywhere she could. She was known to always cheer up her siblings if they were having a bad day, and if she had something she was always offering to share it! Djae had a special softness about her and it made all children love her! She had recently took up babysitting for a close friend of the family and had dreams of being a teacher. Djae loved hanging out with her siblings and friends. She especially enjoyed her strawberry banana smoothies and eating Takis, but most of all making her tiktok videos... In addition to her mother, D'Janeria is survived by her step father, Christopher Mangrum and her siblings, Danaela Mason, Dalani Mason, Dasane Mason, Myla Mangrum, My’Leigh Mangrum, Ma’Jesti Mangrum, Markeya Trueluck, Asianae Infante, Nyasia Orr, Chade Mason, Yan Mason, Zaid Mason, Jason Wallace and Chai-Ann Wallace; her grandfather, Timothy Keener. Also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Pre-deceased by her loving father Kevin Kunta Mason. I, (Chadé Mason), am her older sister and created the gofundme to raise the funds for D’jae to have the best going away as possible. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of the community. We never expected the fundraiser to go this far due to the nature of the crime and the seriousness of it. We plan to use the extra funds for the rest of my siblings for Christmas, clothes and housing items because they left everything behind. Now we’re hoping a new beginning will help the rest of my younger siblings start moving on in their life. My two little brothers are staying with a family friend named Shannah Drake who has been a tremendous help in this terrible tragedy. She is a beneficiary of this fundraiser and together we will ensure that the funds are used to give my baby sister a beautiful send off and the for the remaining siblings and a better opportunity for their future. Thank you to all who have donated and/or shared! We couldn’t have done this with you!
