By now I'm sure most of you have seen the news coverage of Jamel Myles untimely death.
My name is Ashley and I am the wife of Jamel's father, Kenneth Myles. We also have a 4 yr old daughter who is Jamel's younger sister as well as other children between us both. . Jamel's mother has a go fund me for her portion of the expenses so this is being set up for the expenses for Jamel's fathers, Kenneth's side of the family. 

Jamel lit up a room every time someone walked in it. He had a goofy and spunky way about him., always being the silly one in the room. He had ways of making everyone around him laugh and smile. Jamel had so much life in him and this sad tragedy has left his family looking for answers and hearts shattered. 

The funds that are raised will help with any expenses within the fathers family, a proper Urn for his son , and to help plan a memorial for Jamel as well. Kenneth's side of the family very much wants a dedicated time to be able to come together to remember him. 

There is also a sucide walk in Sept 22 that we will be attending in memory of Jamel at Coors Field. If anyone would like more information or to join us in this please contact the family for more information.  

The Myles family wants to thank everyone for helping to spread the awareness of sucide and bullying!

Thank you everyone for all the prayers, love, and support! We participated in the suicide prevention walk and are hoping to be a part of it or volunteer next year and many other years to come as well. It’s been about 2 months now and we are now working on getting support groups and counseling for the family as a whole. Everyday brings on new emotions and challenges, but as a family we are learning to love better and do and say the things we should have been all along. Please continue to spread awareness for suicide for our Jamel. We want to keep his legacy alive. His birthday is coming up and we will be planning a small family memorial for Kenny’s side of the family for that week. Please keep our family in your prayers as the holidays approach. We appreciate and thank everyone ❤️

We wanted to extend our love to each and everyone of you. We have been very blessed to have love and support for our family through this. We have been able to bring Jamel's remains home and get a beautiful URN for him to rest in. Any remaining funds have gone partly to help fund the suicide walk on Sept 22 that we are doing here in Denver in memory of Jamel as well as putting together a small memorial service for Jamel that will be hosted on his birthday, December 13th. Kenny has decided he wants to do a flower release every year on his birthday to keep his memory alive. Kenny wants to make sure we are celebrating his life and the love and great memories of his son every year. Anything that we have left over through this will help keep up any household expenses since Kenny has taken off a few weeks to grieve. Please know that our entire family is forever grateful for all the outpouring of love and support. ❤️

We want to thank everyone who has donated and posted loving messages so far. Everything everyone is doing from donating to simply sharing Jamel's message is greatly appreciated. So far we were able to use some of the funds to help pay for the cremation and a beautiful Urn so Jamel can come him finally. Any other funds that are received will continue to help our family through the grieving process and to help with memorials and any other expenses that come along the way.
Again we are blessed to have the support we have and are eternally grateful for everything and everyone ❤️
