Many friends and family members.

Jerome loved the color purple even as a man he didn’t care, and later adopted blue too. Jerome was a die-hard Tennessee Titans fan and enjoyed betting on his football team and always made it a point to pencil in a phone call to tell you all about his win and your loss, Jerome enjoyed fishing with his brother, loved music, he idolized 2Pac and in his younger years resembled his looks in many ways, Jerome insisted on having the best stereo system, the louder the better, he deeply cherished his relationship with his brother and his daughters. Jerome loved watching and playing Basketball in his younger years even if he never won, he’d tell you he was the best on the court at “dunkin” and was up for a challenge to prove his point every time. Jerome loved cars, lowriders and a good late-night spade game always partnering with his brother knowing they’d “clean up” on the table.

Jerome’s personality was quirky, sarcastic and humorous as well as playful at times, and that will be missed.

    My heart is hurting for our children, and Aaliyah. I’m struggling daily to not feel my soul ripped out for the kids from the aftermath of this event. I hope your looking down on us daily and have approved of all Taylor and I have accomplished for you. We have held our promise and know you are free of the pain you suffered daily. We will forever be by Aaliyah side and you will be as proud of her as you are now of our children. We love you and are devastated by this tragedy. We are scarred, yet blessed to have had laughs with you Friday and I appreciate the kind gesture of a soda on a whim, you graciously surprised me with! Please rest now and know We’ve got your baby girl and will guide, protect and love her as we always have, and as you wished.
    Preston, Taylor and Aaliyah I am forever here for you, I am very honored to have been here to guide you all through this horrific event you precious children have had to endure. I love you, Mom
