About Jayma LeeAnn Ware

Daughter of proud parents, Gary and Marnita Ware, Jayma LeeAnn Ware was born December 19, 1989. Jayma passed away unexpectedly July 31, 2012. She was a beautiful young lady enrolled in BPCC’s Paramedic Program. During her high school years, Jayma fought an illness that left her unable to complete her graduation requirements. When she was well enough, she found her place in BPCC’s Middle College program (College Transition Program), earning straight As and completing her GED.

During her lifetime, Jayma was a great encourager and found much joy in helping others. BPCC was a light in her life, and she loved being a BPCC student.

Because of generous gifts from anonymous donors and her parents, Jayma LeeAnn Ware’s dream of having a career in the Paramedic profession will live on through BPCC students in pursuit of a Paramedic career.
