Family and friends of Maleka Jackson – the woman killed in last month’s boating accident in Exuma are looking to raise $175,000 within 14 days.

So far, nearly $145,000 has been raised courtesy of 2,343 people.

According to a GoFund Me page, the money’s to be used to care for her 12-year-old son and widow, Tiran.

Some $125,000 is to go towards immediate family and medical expenses and the remaining $50,000 for Tiran’s recovery and rehabilitation.

The Jacksons were celebrating their 15th anniversary in The Bahamas when the unthinkable happened.

The engine of their tour boat exploded, killing Maleka and injuring others, including a 22-year-old dancer, Stefanie Schaffer, who is now a double amputee, having lost both of her legs.

All of the injured have since been airlifted from The Bahamas to The United States. 

While a cease and desist order was placed on tour company, 4C’s Adventures pending the completion of an investigation, the company has reportedly resumed operations.
