A mother has shared her inspirational success story on Facebook Wednesday night to instill hope in others.
“I’m in awe of how far I’ve come,” Makeva Jenkins wrote. “Fast forward to now: We overcame being homeless in 2013/2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures. No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business. I’m saying this to say, anyone can do it. It takes determination and consistency.”
A few hours after this alleged post, she was reportedly shot in her head Thursday morning in front of her family members which caused her death the same morning.
According to investigations, witnesses said a man who was seen wearing a mask knocked on the front door of her home near Lake Worth, Florida and walked inside.
The shooter allegedly allowed her three children to leave the room and head into the back yard, while several adults remained inside. Right after the kids left, there was an argument that led to Jenkins being shot.
The masked man stole the family’s vehicle and later ditched it. The motive of the shooter is still unknown, as is his intended target. The shooter also hasn’t been identified.
Jenkins was married and had two daughters, ages 1 and 13, and one 7-year-old son.
She managed a company called The Prime Enterprise Group, which is described on its Facebook page as a business consulting and coaching firm.
It is a nonprofit company that offers seminars and workshops for domestic violence survivors.
“I just can’t thank her enough for what she’s done,” Wauncya Everett said, a woman who Jenkins had helped, “I’m speechless. My heart is just so heavy. I just can’t believe it.”
An unidentified person later confirmed reports of Jenkins’ death on her Facebook page.
“Regretfully, the news reports are true,” the post read. “The family of Makeva Jenkins asks that their privacy be respected at this most trying time. All of your love, condolences, and well wishes are appreciated; however, please refrain from calling or texting concerning the events. Please keep the family in your prayers.”
