A few readers have sent this over, including our good friend Bailey here in Santa Fe. Bailey first met Jermell when he was a 16-year-old kid working at @blackstonebikes, a community and youth-focused non-profit bike shop in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. As an adult, he’s continued to work within the bicycle industry, most recently working for Divvy, Chicago’s bike-share program. He also lent a helping hand here in New Mexico in the start-up of @silverstallionbicyclecoffee in Gallup.
On November 30th, Jermell was shot 3 times while taking groceries from his car to his mother’s apartment. After time in the hospital, he has staggering bills. I know this time of year is tight for everyone, but if you’re able to, kick some extra dollars his way at Jermell’s GoFundMe.
