Jemel Roberson was a young man who was greatly loved by all who knew him.  He was the light of his mother Beatrice's life, and was a devoted loving son.  Jemel was a gifted basketball player and musician, and his love for God and his family were at the forefront of his life.   Sadly, Jemel's life was tragically and unexpectedly cut short this morning as he tried to save others from senseless violence.  Today, many remember him as a hero; one who put others before himself.

To honor Jemel's memory, a GoFundMe account has been started in hopes of collecting donations that will cover his burial expenses.  For those who can donate to help the Roberson family in this tremendously difficult time, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Update: Once again, thank you for your generosity! The money that has been raised has gone far beyond the original goal. This will greatly support his family’s needs during this tragic time.

Additionally, Ms Beatrice wants everyone to know that your outpouring of love and kind words have been such a comfort during this terribly tragic time. Thank you for your prayers, and for reminding us that we are all in this together.❤️

"Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future."--Nelson Mandela
