While attending Howard University in Washington, D.C. he broke his prosthetic leg. This forced him to come home, which was difficult as he was very close to graduating. During the process of getting a new prosthetic limb, Jr. Dixon was killed.
A senseless act of gun violence took his life while he waited for his brother. While the people responsible for his death were caught and subsequently sentenced to life in prison, the loss is still a great tragedy.
JR Dixon's mission in life was to use his resources, his knowledge, and his connections to "beat the odds." Ultimately, he wanted to provide for others, helping empower them and ensure they have what is necessary to overcome life's obstacles.
