The Jones-Kennedy Foundation believes that no matter where you are mentally, physically, or spiritually, education will and should always be a necessity. Education should be accessible in more than one platform to anyone willing to learn. Education is continually changing, but will always be necessary. Everyone deserves an opportunity to learn in an experience that exemplifies a scholastic euphoria.
"The comprehension of education is our priority!"

My push is now, my calling is now. My cousin, my baby, my heart. I think about you every day. Not a day
goes by that I don’t think about you. You would’ve been in the grade I teach, 6 th this year!! Man, always
thought I would be your teacher, but other plans were made. Days without you in the world we live in
currently are……well it may not be a horrible thing you’re gone *sigh. I know you are out of misery,
worry, pain, and I promised myself if I had to cry every day, but you were free from everything
displeasing, I would be okay. They say crying cleanses the soul and you have made sure
that my soul stays pure, so thanks! Ha! I’m going to make you proud; I don’t have a choice, Uncle
Sammy is hanging in there, but cancer has him too, and puddin man I don’t know, sometimes I wonder if
I would make it mentally passed this one. I just came from seeing him today and it made me relive your
last days. Its been 1 year, 10 months, 7 days since I got the news that you transitioned and I’m just now
able to write about you without getting simply angry. You were nine…your destiny, your purpose, are all
mysteries now, and that’s the part nags my brain, what your intelligent self would be now.
Well, I promised myself that I would get these feelings on something one day so here’s to you my angel
now, my Puddin’. September 26, 2020 2:31 p.m.

To have a father like mine
To have a father like mine that exemplifies Superman is a feeling indescribable. To have a father like mine is to feel love even in the worse of situations. Having a father like mine is having 6 missed calls in 5 mins just because he wants to make sure you’re okay. Having a father like mine is being a great exemplar to so many other than your own. Your heart was gold in its purest form. Your words empowered so many to simply keep going. Every feeling, thought, and action you did was for a greater cause bigger than you. Life seems like the worse surreal without you here, nothing makes sense. But you’re free now, from all the worry, all the pain, all the heartache, it’s all free from you now. Soar high enough to lift me on my lowest days. Love you Pops! My Superman forever.
