My son’s name is Malcolm Jamar Stuckey. Malcolm was born February 24, 1995. Malcolm was the baby of the family. He loved basketball, he started playing at age 5. Malcolm attended Southwood Middle School, Crete-Monee Middle School and Crete-Monee High School in Chicago. He played basketball at all three schools. He graduated high school in May 2013. Malcolm attended Joliet Junior College and South Suburban College.

Malcolm was a handsome, funny and loving young man who loved to tell jokes and as his friends would say play the dozens. He loved playing cards and video games. Malcolm was a wonderful son and brother. I was so proud of him. Malcolm worked at the Museum of Science and Industry. He loved his family and friends.

Malcolm was shot and killed on May 29, 2014 at 5722 S. Lasalle. He was 19. It’s the day changed my life forever. Two shooters have been charged with first degree murder. We are awaiting a trial date.

I would like the public to understand how gun violence affects families, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends. Everyone listen. It’s the worse, most horrific pain I’ve ever had to deal with in my life. It’s a pain that never goes away. I miss my son so much and it’s nothing I can do about it. No mother should ever have to bury their child. The pain is unbearable at times. I had to try and find a new me and learn how to live without my son.

No one will ever understand this pain unless you are living it. I don’t want anyone else to ever have to deal with this pain. I wish those parents who have all their children with them would love and cherish what God has blessed them with and have a little compassion for those of us who are dealing with this pain. We didn’t ask for this. Nor do we want it. But we have no other choice. When I mention my baby’s name, you’ll see a tear flow every now and then. Understand I miss him more than I can ever explain and I’m trying my best to do my best.
