The Keith Jones Athletic Memorial Foundation was founded in 2015 to honor the fond memories of “KJ” by supporting the athletic student and teams in Eastern Wake County. Born June 27, 2001 to the proud parents of Keith and D. Marie Jones, (members of Victory Tabernacle Church), Keith was a good child with a loving heart. Keith was known to have a gentle and courageous heart who could challenge opponents twice his physical size. Keith was involved in many sports, including karate, T-Ball, basketball, and football in the Eastern Wake communities.
Keith’s life ended on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 while he waited in the front yard of his Wendell home for the school bus to arrive. He was struck and killed by a hit and run driver. His parents struggle everyday to live without their son. However, with the KJAMF, KJ’s life will not be forgotten.
As we strengthen the mission and work of the Foundation, we are personally reaching out to invite you to join us during the First Annual KJAMF Black and White Gala. Your support and attendance are greatly appreciated and will help support the mission to support other students who are financially challenged to participate in team athletics.
