Memorial fund for Ozama Shaw

23322688_1504294801.8136_funddescriptionHello to all out there,

I just found out that my neighbors 15 year old son, Ozama Shaw, died on August 26th as the cause of a gunshot wound in the abdomen. The family, and community are grieving. His mother, Kadene and step father David, needs12'000$ to send him home to the rest of the family in Jamaica to be buried. Here is where you can help. Please please please let's help this family and make it just a little tiny bit easier for them by helping to send her son home.  No mother should have to bury her son, no matter the cause. 

I personally knew Ozama. My husband and I had many lengthy discussions about life with him! He enjoyed school and told me all about him getting on the football team. I remember, he was fresh from Jamaica in 2015, he greeted me with enthusiasm 'wa gwan'! I laughed and spoke back. That was my favorite memory of Ozama. He was an inquisitive young man, and we enjoyed our interactions with him.  

If you have any fond memories of Ozama, please feel free to share. The family needs our support.


The whole community thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.
