A nonprofit in the Norwood neighborhood where Jashawn lived and died has started a fund to collect the $1,200 needed to purchase a headstone for the gravesite. Checks made out to Bronx Jewish Community Council with "Jashawn Parker" in the memo line can be sent to: Sally Dunford, Bronx Jewish Community Council, 3176 Bainbridge Ave., Bronx, NY 10467. The donations will be tax deductible.
