Support New Jack's family in their time of need.
Yesterday the wrestling world lost one of its most extreme figures, New Jack. It was reported that the ECW original suffered a heart attack and had passed away at the age of 58. Now, a Go Fund Me has been set up to help with expenses and to realize his final venture.
I just talked to New Jacks wife Jennifer. There has been a Go Fund Me set up to help cover New Jacks final expenses.This is the the ONLY official Go Fund Me set up. Any help is appreciated. No donation is too small.— Brian Heffron aka The Blue Meanie (@BlueMeanieBWO) May 15, 2021
The description of the fundraiser reads as follows:
It is with great sadness that I am creating this account to help my friend, Jennifer Young, wife of ECW Legend- New Jack, better known to personal friends and family as Jerome Young. New Jack unfortunately and unexpectedly passed away on Friday, May 14th, leaving his family, friends and a world of fans devastated. Friends have created this Gofundme page because Jerome and Jennifer had been allocating money towards a future merchandising store for the New Jack brand. Due to the sudden nature of Jerome’s passing, she will be unable to finalize this venture, and will also need assistance with burial funds to lay him to rest, as well as to cover the cost of any unexpected emergency expenses. Additionally, New Jack, leaves behind family that relied on his financial support. We'd like to help ensure that this sudden life transition is a little smoother for them if at all possible. We thank each of you from the bottom of our hearts for any donation you provide, and for your love and support in this difficult time. Our goal is to provide comfort and peace to them during this difficult journey, and possibly provide needed funds to his younger children.
*Please be advised that this is the ONLY Gofundme or donation platform set up for New Jack and his family. Any others are fraudulent and not approved by his wife*
