Spokesman Bruce Carter said Mr. Jefferson was not ill at the time of his death. He died of a broken heart.

It’s just sad because of grief. I don’t know what else to say. Less than a month ago, he was working at El Centro, mentoring kids twice a week.

He just couldn’t get back from what happened with his daughter.

I’d like to think that Atatiana Jefferson and her daddy are now reunited in heaven.

My sincerest condolences to the Jefferson family!
