This is the story of our shared American dream gone wrong; our loving family was violently taken away from us on October 3rd. A criminal kidnapped and murdered our beautiful 8-month-old baby Aroohi, her mother Jasleen, her father Jasdeep (JB), and her uncle Amandeep (Aman). As immigrants to America, they worked tirelessly for 18 years to achieve safety, security, and community for themselves and their families. Aman and Jasdeep were the primary bread earners for the family, supported their elderly parents, and lived under one roof.
Who's left behind?
They are survived by Aroohi’s grandparents, Randhir Singh and Kirpal Kaur, Aman’s wife, Jaspreet Kaur (Jass) their children Ekam (6 years) and Seerat (9 years).
Randhir and Kirpal were overjoyed in recent years to see their family grow. They were proud of their sons Aman and Jasdeep and cherished playing with their granddaughter Aroohi. They recently traveled to India to plan a Lohri celebrating Aroohi’s arrival in the family and now miss her greatly. They are left with a void in their family that cannot be filled.
Jass is now a single mother taking care of two bright children who are left without their father and cannot fathom why their dad will not return.
Who were Aroohi, Jasleen, Jasdeep, and Aman?
Aroohi loved to run around the house in her walker and was a joyous child. She loved being held in her grandparent's, aunt's, and uncle’s arms; her eyes were always full of joy. She meant the world to her little cousins Ekam and Seerat.
Aroohi’s parents, Jasdeep and Jasleen, married three years ago in India and re-united two years ago in America after Jasleen’s immigration. They were barely starting to make memories together as a family with their baby.
In keeping with his name, Aman (meaning peace) was calm, positive, charitable, and always ready to help others. Aman was the rock of his family, a great dad who always made time to cuddle his son Ekam, read with his daughter Seerat, and treasure their many art projects and other accomplishments. Aman was loved and admired by his wife, Jass. Aman routinely donated food to the local food bank and found comfort in his faith, never missing Sunday service in the temple. He was a caring elder brother and a role model to his cousins.
What are we asking for?
We are grateful for the prayers, and tremendous support was shown to us by our community. While nothing can fill this void, your prayers and donations will support the upbringing and education of Ekam (6), and Seerat (9) and provide financial relief to Jass, Randhir, and Kirpal in these difficult times.
Our beautiful family:
