Los Angeles High School opened a new Varisty Sports Weight Room in the name of my son, Jamiel Shaw, II (Jas). The facility will be dedicated in his memory on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 3:00pm. Los Angeles High School is located at 4650 W. Olympic Blvd, L.A, CA 90019.
Michael Garvey, President of The Dumbell Man Fitness Equipment (TDM), donated the equipment for the new 900 square foot facility which features a variety of machines and weight training stations.
Ron Haddad, TDM Vice President of Development stated, "We are honored to be involved and have the support of the Shaw family, coaches and school administrators."
As many of you already know, my beloved son was murdered March 2, 2008, while his mother was serving in Iraq. Following the dedication of the Weight Room, we will have a candelight vigil at 21st and 5th Avenue. The candelight vigil will be held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, where Jas was murdered.
All are welcomed to join us. For more information call 323.806.9918.
My family and I thank everyone who supported us and continue to support us during this difficult time!
