Jennifer Young (his wife) wrote the following about her husband’s passing on Facebook:
“For all the outpouring of love from family, friends, and fans – I’m totally blown away. Jerome was not only my husband, he was my best friend and I’m completely gutted.
He loved a lot of you very much, and you’ll never know how much I appreciate the love. I can’t really respond too much right now because I’m completely broken. I’m trying to help kids through this but I don’t even know what I’m doing.
But for those of yall ordering books today and seriously asking if they’re autographed, please request a refund and as my daughter so eloquently put it, go stick your face in a lawnmower.”
A GoFundMe page was set up to help with New Jack’s funeral expenses. $18,477 were raised from 388 donations. The goal was $50,000.
