My Grandmother is an Icon and an inspiration to many who lived in E. Robert Moore Houses and who frequented her famous gym, The Jerome Boxing Club! for many years, Jerome Boxing Club kept so many kids and adults off the streets and was a prop and backdrop for many shows and movies. My Grandmother exhibited class and tenacity whilst she also had a huge heart and was a huge philanthropic lady who gave back to many parts of the communities in the South Bronx. She was well known as an activist by Reps Serrano, Antonetty, Ruben Diaz Sr. and so many more Politicians, as well as celebrities/Well known Boxers/Boxing aficionados like Mike Tyson, Boxing Ring Announcers and Owners especially because she Hosted so many Boxing competitions including Amateur Boxing’s Golden Gloves. As the matriarch of our family she taught us many great life lessons and how to be a leader and out our beat feet forward when seeking to accomplish our goals as a family and mostly as individuals! She is sorely missed and may she SIEP until we meet again.
