The worst pain I've ever felt': Mom grieves after four kids ages 2 to 8 die in alleged DUI crash

A South Carolina mother is grieving after the death of her four children in an alleged DUI crash.


Jackie Brown was looking forward to a merry Christmas with her four children -- Jamire Halley, 8, Robbiana Evans, 6, Arnez Yaron Jamison Jr., 4, and Ar'mani Jamison, 2. Now, the 29-year-old mom is preparing for their funeral.

Brown was at home on Thursday, December 6 when Jamison Sr. took her kids with him on a visit to one of his other children in town. By the early hours of Friday morning, Brown was worried; even more so because Jamison Sr. did not respond to any of her calls or texts. She was on her way to look for them when she got a call from the hospital. Her two-year-old, Ar'mani, was there.


Brown said she thought it would just be bumps and bruises, but when she got to Greenville Memorial Hospital, she saw her toddler on life support and learned the rest of the terrible news: Jamison Sr. was driving the children back early Friday morning when his van veered off the highway and crashed into several trees. Her three older children died on the spot. By Sunday, Ar'mani was also taken off life support and pronounced dead.

The devastated mom had been through a lot with her kids. They had just moved into a modest trailer after living for a while in her car, and it appeared things were finally looking up for them. Brown said it still felt like she was in a nightmare.


“I’m just incomplete now without them,” she said. “They were my everything -- my heart, my blood, my breath, my motivation. They helped me get through everything I needed to get through.”

She added amidst tears:

“Now that they’re gone, it’s like I’m gone. I love them so much and it’s never gonna be the same. My children were my everything; all that I had. Now I have nothing at all.”

Brown also shared a photo of her four children along with the heart-rending words: “Rest Well mommies angels. The worst pain I’ve ever felt.”


Crystal Griffith, one of Brown’s co-workers who set up a GoFundMe account for the children’s funeral, told Greenville News, "These children were this lady's life."

According to South Carolina Highway Patrol, Jamison Sr. has been charged with felony driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license and child endangerment. Some of his previous charges also include a hit-and-run with property damage and a felony for domestic violence.

In a recent Facebook post, Brown announced that the funeral service for her children would hold on December 19.


Our thoughts and prayers are with Brown and her family during this great tragedy.
