Jennifer Markovsky, was a native of Hawaii and a 1997 graduate of Waianae High School.  The 36 year old mother of two was at the clinic supporting a friend when the shooter attacked.

“She was the most lovable person,” Ah-King said from his home in Hawaii. “So kind-hearted, just always there when I needed her.”

According to Julie Miller, Miller’s brother Paul and Jennifer have been living in Colorado for the last ten years, ever since Paul was reassigned to Colorado Springs.

Jennifer was a stay at home mom, devoted to her children and her family.

“She’s just a really sweet woman that would do anything for everyone,” Miller said.

“He’s struggling dealing with the children and everything its hard to let them know that their mother is gone,” Miller said of her brother.

Understandably, Jennifer’s husband, family, and friends are trying to take care of two young children whose mother was taken from them far too soon. Jennifer’s father wrote his daughter a heartfelt message on Facebook.

“Life was too short my beloved daughter,” he wrote. “I was waiting to see you soon.”

Sadly Garret Swasey and Ke’Arre Stewart’s families are also grieving and heartbroken during a time and season that should be filled with all the joy and anticipation that Christmas brings.

Kearre+Stewart

Ke’Arre Stewart is an Army veteran and father of two. In 2004 he graduated from La Vega High School in Texas and joined the Army. He was stationed at Fort Hood and served one tour in Iraq.  According to his aunt, Tronda Stewart, K’Arre was a dj, entrepreneur and a devoted father.

“He was always trying to make things better for him and his family,” she said.

Stewart’s wife told KKTV that he “leaves behind his children, whose lives will never be the same.” She also said that all his family wants is “justice,” the station reported.

Amburh Butler has been a good friend of Ke’Arre’s since they were 11 years old. As she found out from high school friends via texts and Facebook what had happened on Friday, she knew that the family would need help and supportfinancial and otherwise.

“He was a stand-up guy,” she said. “If you were hungry, he fed you. If you were cold and needed a ride, he was just there. He was a good friend and an amazing listener.”

“He was caring, giving, funny and just a damn good person,” she wrote. “We will never know why God chose him that dreadful day in Colorado, but he makes no mistakes.”

Ke’Arre was, like Jennifer, at the clinic supporting a friend. He happened to be outside making a phone call when he was shot. However, Ke’Arre saved many lives on Friday because he managed to stay on his feet long enough to run inside order those in the clinic to call 911, get down behind shelter or hide in the rooms.

“He was caring, giving, funny and just a damn good person,” she wrote. “We will never know why God chose him that dreadful day in Colorado, but he makes no mistakes.”

A mother and two fathers. Jennifer Markovsky, Ke’Arre Stewart, Garrett Swasey. Lives cut short because they were at a place helping friends or working to keep a community safe. Tragically they leave behind children, wives, husbands, families and friends to mourn lives cut short by a madman whose motives are still unknown.

All of us at Victory Girls continue to pray for those wounded as they strive to recover. We pray for Jennifer, Ke’Arre, and Garrett’s families as they go through time time of grief and mourning. We pray especially for the children left behind that they loved so much.

    I’m probably going to anger some folks here, but here goes:
    Unless they were supporting someone going into the abattoir of PP for some purpose other than abortion, I have limited sympathy for the two non-LEOs killed.

    Yes, no one should be shot and killed for simply being “in the wrong place at the wrong time”. But I won’t get excited over how “loving” or “supportive” they were, when they were “supporting” a friend who is apparently going to have an elective abortion. They were “supporting” someone who was going to kill their unborn child, if that’s the case. That doesn’t get me all woozy for their supposed compassion and love.

    Again, I don’t support shooting them. I think this guy should receive the full measure of the law for his actions. But please don’t tell me how great they were.
