Hello all,

We come here to ask for support for our brother Djemayley.

 On Wednesday August 3rd, we received word that Djemayley suffered from several seizures in his house. He was quickly rushed to Stamford hospital where he was put into a medically induced coma until the doctors could figured out why the seizures persisted and caused his troubled breathing.

Djemayley was a healthy 16 year old boy who came to church every Sunday and had no medical history of any sort, so our family was shook to our core. People have had seizures but in his case the doctors could not find a reason for what was going on. They had no answers for the abrupt illness that overtook his body. 

After hours of waiting for results from a CAT Scan, doctors told us the test came back inconclusive. From here they had to fly our brother to Yale New Haven Hospital to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

There, they ran tests and found everything inconclusive so why is our brother still in this coma? Why were the doctors telling us they can’t wake him yet?

After intensive prayers and after God made his way the doctors took him out of the coma and he was awake! He was talking, walking, and doing things he could do before the event. Visits to his bedside ended in laughter and joy. “They put me to sleep” he said with a grin. We joked around with him and offered to bring in his PlayStation so he could, “get back on the sticks” and play with his closest friends. We, along with the medical staff, were joyous and hopeful. *Unfortunately on the morning of August 6th, 2022, we lost the battle. Our earth stopped and our hearts shattered. He was 16, he was healthy, we could not understand. His heart stopped with no explanation and no warning. He didn’t have nearly enough time to experience life. *

He was hardworking, funny, intelligent, and a kind. He had just started training for his first job. He was on the roads of Stamford with his newly obtained permit. Djemay was preparing to enter his junior year of high school, a year full of decisions and exploration. He was too young, just starting out and checking off the milestones of his teen years.

 We are coming here to ask for financial help with our brothers medical bills and funeral expenses.

We are not prepared to say goodbye to this God ordained young man. The Jeremiah of our generation but God knows why. God has a reason for everything.

Djemayley is lived through his parents Serge and Iverna Vernet and his younger brother. He was loved by aunts, uncles, cousins, and his church congregation. He was the sweetest boy. Djemayley will forever be in our hearts, he will forever be in his parents hearts, and he will forever be in his little brother Schmael’s heart.

 We thank you for your support and ask that you send prayers to the Vernet Family.

You are forever in our hearts Djemay❤️
