HURT to HEAL

OUR STORY

On February 27, 2019, Jacquelon Gaskin, and both of her children, Gianna and Giovanni, were murdered in an act of family annihilation committed by Jacquelon’s boyfriend of 13 years. Naturally, her family was devastated. As they adjusted to their new normal, they began to get educated on domestic abuse and services available to victims and survivors. Through these interactions, they learned the rate of instances of domestic abuse for women of color is 35% higher than white women, however women of color are the least likely to report abuse and/or seek community based services. This revelation brought about many questions. So, in their journey to heal, the next step was made clear: Our 3 Memorial Foundation, Incorporated was founded. The organization's chosen logo was designed to be reminiscent of the 3 crosses that were donated and placed in the front yard of Jacquelon's home where the murders were committed.

A message from our founder...

Danielle Leverett-Gallaspy

When we lost Jackie, Gigi, and Fluff so tragically and suddenly, naturally, I was devastated asked every question imaginable. Perhaps the most pressing was “Why?”, immediately followed by “Were there signs that we missed?” and “Could this have been avoided?”. As we have adjusted to our new normal, I’ve been plagued by those questions. If there is anything that anyone remembers about our beloved Jack-Jack, it’s that her biggest aspiration was to help women and children. She aspired to become a labor and delivery nurse, and had actually re-enrolled in school just weeks prior to her murder. While navigating the healing process, I’ve attended webinars, volunteered, networked with local DV organizations, and had countless conversations about the topic. Through these interactions, I’ve learned that many are being abused AND DON’T EVEN KNOW IT. I am grateful to God for the vision to use our tragedy to help others and welcome every opportunity to work to ensure that no other family will ever have to experience the hurt my family has experienced and continues to heal from.
