On Saturday, family and friends gathered for a balloon release and celebration of life 3 months after a deadly car crash in Taylors.
With the support of her family and close friends, Jacqueline Brown says she found the strength to put together the party on what would have been her oldest son’s birthday.
“Today we are celebrating my oldest son Ja’maire ‘big money’ Halley’s 9th birthday in Heaven,” Brown told 7News.
Since December, Brown has been coping with the tragedy of losing her 4 babies in a deadly single car crash.
“I don’t wish this pain on no mother. Ever.” Brown said.
According to Highway Patrol investigators on December 7, 2018, around 12:28 a.m. Arnez Jamison, Brown’s boyfriend, was driving on Mountain Creek Road in Taylors.
Troopers say Jamison ran off the right side of the road and hit several trees.
Brown’s 3 oldest died in the crash – 9-year-old Ja’maire Halley, 6-year-old Robbianna Evans, 4-year-old and Arnez Jamison.
The Greenville Coroner says Brown’s youngest, 2-year-old Ar’mani Jamison, died several days later in the hospital.
“I miss everything about them,” Brown said. “Everything.”
Brown tells 7News she has to keep going, that’s why Saturday was about celebrating her babies despite the pain she feels in her heart.
She says she knew her kids were at the party in spirit.
“4 of his balloons just flew out of the car and flew straight up. So I knew that was them, I know they are here. They are with me, they are all around,” she said.
Brown ended the celebration with a balloon release.
“I love my kids to death, I do. I love them more than myself,” Brown said.
A judge recently denied Jamison’s request for bond.
