My heart is broken as I am writing this... I am just shattered to pieces to even have to ask for support of funds to help with the burial of my 6 month old grandson. All funding will go towards his funeral, memorial/ burial expenses and anything left over will go to counseling for the parents as they are heavily grieving as we all are. The family truly appreciates everyone’s support at this time.

6 Month old Jacari Long killed by babysitter’s pit bull 

Yesterday on March 5, 2019, My 6 month-old grandson was killed on Tuesday afternoon after being attacked by a dog that belonged to his babysitter.
Jacari Long, of Lexington, passed away from injuries sustained after a boxer/pit bull mix attacked him in his babysitter’s living room while the dog’s owner was outside in the driveway.
The babysitter told police that she had left the child in the living room of her home with her mother while she went out to the driveway to clean out the backseat of her car. While making room in the car for the child, she heard her mother scream from inside and found the dog attacking the child when she entered the room. At around 2:30 p.m., police were notified of the attack and called to the scene.
Jacari was taken to Novent Health hospital then  airlifted to a Trauma Center Hospital in Winston Salem but due to the extent of the injuries he was pronounced deceased.
Animal Control has taken the dog and the Police department is actively investigating this case.
Our family would appreciate any support given this go fund me at this time... this is such a devastating and sudden tragedy to our family. Any amount is not too small. 
We thank you and appreciate all the prayers  and support that is being given at this time.
Thank you,
From the Long and Brown Family

Good morning,
Our family would like to thank everyone that has continued to surround our family with prayers and love during this time. As for myself I have noticed that my grieving has turned into depression, with that being said I have rechanneled that energy into prayer, meditation and fighting harder for justice for Jacari.
Although Salisbury police is actively investigating this case with Jacari being left inside while the babysitter that was watching Jacari stepped outside to clean out her car with a roaming pitt bull inside... It is harder on the family during that time because they are without a child, grandchild and loved one forever while it seems the person that endangered that child goes on with life. I’ve decided to push for Jacari’s Law. Jacari’s law will enforce immediate charges of manslaughter if a babysitter or caretaker watching someone’s else’s child, leaves an infant or child under 18 alone and unattended resulting in a death by ANY pet not confined. This goes for resulting in serious injuries as well. I have launched a petition on change.org for Jacari’s Law last night in hopes to bring awareness and pass this law and by sending it to legislation and representatives. We just need signatures for those that support Jacari’s Law. Sign and share with your friends and continue to lift us up in prayer.

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support.

We want to thank everyone that has been praying and donating for Jacari Long’s Memorial. I honestly had no clue days ago how we would bury my 6 month old grandson and I wasn’t prepared for him to leave us this soon. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for giving as we are grieving Jacari’s loss. This still seems like a nightmare we can’t wake up from but I created this go fund me so we can lay Jacari’s body at peace. Although we are devastated planning his Memorial your donations have helped ease the burden of cost to lay him to rest. I’ve never felt a pain like this. Please pray for our family and send special prayers up for Jacari’s parents. We thank you so much. The go fund me for Jacari has ended and no further donations will be accepted. We will keep the campaign up for those that wish to post condolences and prayers as they have given comfort to us during this time and will be needed going forward.
Thank you for helping us with Jacari Long’s Memorial. We are forever grateful, May God bless you all.
