Twitter is rallying around social media star and Grammy Award winner Jay Versace after learning of his mother’s passing.
Jay’s mother, Nikesha “Dolly” Gunter, transitioned to her heavenly home on Wednesday, May 18, after battling ongoing medical issues.
Ms. Dolly is remembered “for her love for baking, throwing parties, and passion for music. She had a bright smile and charming personality that made her loved by many. She will be dearly missed until the day her family is reunited with her.”
A GoFundMe campaign was launched to aid Jay and his family as they face financial and housing challenges in the wake of Ms. Dolly’s passing.
Jay took to Twitter writing:
