JCEA Memorial for Desire Reid and Keyon Robinson

Jersey City awoke to tragedy Thursday morning after an 11-year-old girl and her infant brother died in an apartment fire in the city’s Bergen-Lafayette section.

Desire Reid, 11, and her 8-month-old brother, Keyon Robinson, died in the one-alarm blaze that broke out inside their home at 470 Martin Luther King Drive.

The educators of the Jersey City Education Association would like to support the family in their time of grieving and healing. All monies raised will be given to the family to defray funeral costs and help rebuild from this tragedy. 100% of donations will be given to the family through the JCEA Philanthropic Fund.
