On Thursday, the girl’s mother, Melissa Willey, announced some sad news. The family made a decision to take her off the life support as Jaelynn’s brain was dead and “no life left in her.”

My daughter was hurt by a boy who shot her in the head and took everything from our lives. It will be different forever.

Jaelynn was the second oldest of nine children. She helped her mother take care of the younger siblings. The girl was doing very well at school. She was a member of the school’s swim team. Her friends describe Jaelynn as an amazing young lady.

She’s the most thoughtful caring person in this world. She has a heart full of love that can’t be met by anyone else. Her beautiful smile lights up any room she walks into.

As it was reported earlier, Jaelynn was involved in a romantic relationship with the shooter. When their relationship ended, Rollins decided to take a revenge with an act of violence. Rollins was severely injured and was later declared dead.

At the moment, Jaelynn is still on life support, but she will not make it. The doctors will take her off life support this evening.
