Sierra Jamison, 30, was discovered dead at around 7:30 PM in her garage in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the 7800 block of South Indiana Avenue on Monday.
“I know how many sacrifices I’ve done for my family, my son, because he’s been through a lot,” Jamison said at the time of the report. “My son had open-heart surgery. He has a disability, so he means a lot to me, and I’m not fixing to let this young man – with a knife at that – take anything I work hard for away from me.”
“We are honoring her legacy. We are honoring her life. But today, we have a victory, because this person has been caught,” she said. “He is currently in custody, so yes, we can celebrate with a little bit of peace.”
She further added that the suspect was a friend of Jamison.
“This is someone she was comfortable around,” Sadina, said. “This is someone she trusted so she had no reason to fear.”
On Wednesday, Jamison’s family held a vigil and balloon release at the West Garfield Park neighborhood to celebrate her life.
