Temara Sarafina King

Hi, my name is Dynisha and I’m fundraising for a college fund for Alaysia King, daughter of Temara King, who was tragically taken from us on January 24, 2023.

Temara was a beloved Special Education teacher for Jersey City Public Schools. She spent the last decade enriching the lives of students at PS No. 5 school in Jersey City, NJ. She worked the after school program, summer school and even provided Developmental Intervention services to children under 3 years old, in the Early Intervention program. She was so passionate about her career and fervently pursued higher education. She recently obtained her certification to become a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant, and spoke so enthusiastically about her upcoming position. It is unfortunate that she was robbed of actualizing her dream.

Temara was full of life and brightened any room she entered with her smile. In her leisure, Temara shared her love for fitness and overall wellness. You could count on her to share a workout tip or simply post a positive message on her Instagram every morning. If you scanned her page, in just a glimpse you’d know that Temara was very family oriented. It is clear that she was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, granddaughter, cousin, niece, etc. but no role was more important to her than being the mother of Alaysia who she affectionately referred to as her “Mooche”/“Lay”. Alaysia was what Temara described as her greatest creation.
We know that losing Temara will impact Lay in ways that we can’t begin to process at the moment. However, we do know that she would want her to continue her legacy and life long commitment of pursuing her educational goals.

We would be so grateful for any donation that you contribute to securing a bright future for Lay, just as her mother would have wanted. Thank you so so much in advance for your kindness during such a difficult time.
