On Monday March 2, 38 year old Jennifer Lobato died in her jail cell in Jefferson County Jail in Golden, Colorado. Jennifer and her cell mate repeatedly begged guards and medical staff for medical care before she died.
Jennifer Lobato had been in custody for little more than 24 hours before she died in her jail cell, despite multiple requests for medical attention. Even after Jennifer had been seen on the floor of her cell uncontrollably vomiting by jail guards, jail medical staff denied her emergency medical care.
Jennifer Lobato left behind a family, including children. They are now saddled with the debt of the funeral expenses, and specifically buying a headstone for her. We need to mobilize to help Jennifer's family come up with the needed funds. Let's bless Jennifer's family the same way our communities have come together to bless others killed by indifferent law enforcement agencies in the Denver metro area.
