Our Story

“Peace Beyond the Pain” was founded in 2019 by Jennifer Maraston

in Dallas, Texas as the result of the senseless MURDER of her eldest

son Jaquan Wyatt. Jaquan was visiting California with friends to

celebrate his 21st birthday on May 18, 2019.  Unfortunately, Jaquan

was murdered the very next day May 19, 2019 which in fact was the

same day he had plans to celebrate his birthday with his family. 

Sadly,  that never happened. 

 

Jennifer soon found out the trauma that is placed on the ENTIRE FAMILY

once the funeral services are over and everyone else returns to normal daily life.  

Like Jaquan & Jennifer, children and their parents are victims of murder every day. In 2018 there were 16,214 murders in the Unites States (Statista*) including 1,322 murders in Texas. In 2019, the Dallas Police Department confirmed 210 homicides for the city alone. These numbers are shared to bring light to not just the numbers but the families that are affected by crime and violence constantly and consistently.

Peace Beyond The Pain is on a pursuit to inspire and support the families that have been victimized by senseless HOMICIDE.
