Jamal James. 1979-2005 Rest in Peace

I lost someone very special to me, and I just found out three months after the fact. I was actually trying to get back in touch with him, when I read an article that he was found dead in his Harlem apartment by friends and family. Jamal was last seen at a bar by himself on the fourth of July weekend.

Jamal was murdered alone and in his apartment. His murder is linked in connection with a string of 4 murders of gay black men around the Harlem area and within the same time frame. Currently the case involving Jamal is UNSOLVED.

Jamal was president of his alma mater Syracuse University in upstate New York in 2001. Having known him personally, I can tell you that he had a firecracker of a personality and was a born leader. After graduation he wanted to move to Los Angeles to explore the entertainment industry as he was a drama major and subsequently moved alternatively to the NYC area.

Thanks for your comment about Chad on my blog. Did not know him but for some reason his murder has struck a chord. Awful to find out about Jamal on your blog. Hate how these things keep happening.

Are you trollers serious?? Using a memorial to a man who was murdered as an advertising forum for your stupid weight loss products? ? Shame on you! Shame on your heartless, epically disrespectful actions.
I am asking you to remove your ads out of respect and the natural empathy that most humans possess when honoring the life of a human being who was very viciously taken from his friends and family.
And truly, you need to reevaluate your soul....or work on creating one.
