Son of murdered security guard: “Dad was a real hard-working fella”

Slain se­cu­ri­ty guard Jer­ry Stu­art was a man who lived for his chil­dren and al­though his fam­i­ly are not yet ready to for­give his killers, they know it is point­less to keep the hate.

Stu­art’s son, Jah­mare Nes­bit yes­ter­day re­mem­bered his dad as, “A re­al hard-work­ing fel­la.”

Speak­ing with re­porters at the Foren­sic Sci­ence Cen­tre, St James, Nes­bit said the fa­ther of two, “re­al­ly loved his chil­dren.”

Stu­art had been em­ployed with Al­lied Se­cu­ri­ty Lim­it­ed for the past 14 years.

He, along with col­league Jef­frey Pe­ters and fe­male guard Pe­o­la Bap­tiste, was am­bushed by five gun­men around 5 pm on Sep­tem­ber 19, dur­ing a rob­bery at the Pen­ny­wise Plaza in La Ro­main.

Stu­art and Pe­ters both died at the scene, while Bap­tiste re­mains hos­pi­tal­ized in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Nes­bit said the true ex­tent of his fa­ther’s loss had not yet set in for his grand­moth­er.

He said his fa­ther had dreamt of be­com­ing part of the law en­force­ment com­mu­ni­ty, and al­though it had not ma­te­ri­al­ized, he was com­mit­ted to his job.
