Jennifer is the mother of TikTok star Dazhariaa, who committed suicide on 9th February 2021. With fans mourning the loss of Dee, here’s what her mom has to say about it.
The loss of anyone at the age of 18 is tragic but in the case of Dazhariaa, friends and family cannot get closure because the reasons for suicide are still unknown.
Here is what we know about her death including comments from her mom on Facebook.
Death of TikTok star Dazhariaa
There was nothing to suggest that Dee would be taking the drastic step of ending her life.
If you go to her Instagram account, she had posted stories on the 8th and titled them as her “Last post” in highlights for her 156k followers to see.
There were three stories of her lip-syncing, dancing without a care, and showing off her hair and makeup. She mentions that “I’m annoying y’all. This is my last post”.
This highlight ends with a 4th story posted on 9th February (the day she died) saying “I am ugly in real life. Don’t let the makeup fool you”.
These are her last lines to her fans on Instagram. Nothing was revealed until Joseph Santiago, her father, took to TikTok to reveal that she has passed away.
On February 10th, he posted a video montage of Dazhariaa’s pictures with the heartbreaking caption: “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter. Unfortunately, she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.”
Jennifer Shaffer’s reaction on Facebook
Following the death of her child, Jennifer posted on Facebook on 10th February, saying that she is heartbroken and waiting for Dee to say this was all a prank.
Likewise, the mother “wishes that she had died instead of her daughter”.
Jennifer is also selling Dazhariaa’s t-shirts as another way to raise money for the funeral and to honor her daughter’s life.
Jennifer is currently in a relationship with Willie Brock Jr. and on February 11th, she just announced that she is pregnant via Facebook.
