On March 2, 2018, Jasmine answered her calling from Heaven as our Lord and Savior sent his angels to Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina to receive her home . . . 

Jasmine Lynn Miller (Jazzy), was born on January 7, 1998 in Trenton, New Jersey to Craig Lamont Miller and Tabitha Lynn Anderson. She has been a North Carolina resident since 2008 presently residing in Mount Holly.

Jasmine’s legacy is one of Learning, Loving and Living. 

Learning: At her church of Macedonia Baptist in Mount Holly, NC where she’s been a member since June 2012 she lovingly served as an Usher, Sunday School teacher, Vacation Bible School teacher, Youth Missionary Ministry Treasurer, Kitchen Ministry member, Youth and Mass Choir member and lastly a Youth Praise Dance team member. At her college of choice, Western Carolina University (WCU) in Cullowhee, NC, where she was a Sophomore, her 1st priority was her academics, accomplishing a 4.0 GPA (summer 2016) and touting a cumulative GPA of 3.43 (completing 9 courses the Fall 2017 semester). Though she was battling Leukemia Cancer she managed to complete 50 credit hours as of the close of 2017 and was enrolled in 5 Spring classes (15 credit hours) and had enrolled for another 6 classes (18 credit hours) in the upcoming Fall Semester for a total of 33 more credit hours. Her passion for dance led her to major in Dance at her High School -Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte, NC (class of 2016). While simultaneously competing in Dance competitions with the Dance Expression Studio of Concord, NC, winning many trophies and also co-instructing.

Loving: It can be said that Jasmine never met anyone that she didn't express love for and that didn't love her too. She especially enjoyed finding small tokens of love to give out to ones. She gave a full level of love right from the onset of meeting anyone. Truly she treated everyone equally and had the ability to give everyone her full attention blocking out all other concerns. Her closest of friends and church members were all like a family member to her. Her smile lite up any room, melting your heart right away and was simply irresistible! Her loving was also seen in that she poured out love through tutoring Math and Reading, volunteering for Freshman Move in at WCU; American Red Cross Donor and a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to advance the awareness and hopeful cure of these diseases.

Living: Anyone that knew her knows that she cherished living and enjoying life, as such she has many achievements in that area as well, a James F. Wertz Oratorical Contest 1st Place County winner and advancement to the State level in 2014; WCU Evolution Modeling Troupe; WCU Intercultural Affairs Project Care mentee; WCU Inspirational Gospel choir; WCU Black Student Union; WCU Tunnel of Oppression and Stroll like an Alpha 1st place winner; Nominee for National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists Award of Excellence; Honors Society; National Society of Leadership; Success Society and Charlotte Post Top Seniors Honoree. 

She was preceded in death by her Grandparents, Johnnie Samuel Miller, Doris Miller, Charles (Soup) Spearman Butler, Jr and Mary C. Thomas as well as her Step-Dad, Major A. Anderson. Left to cherish her memories are: mother, Tabitha L. Anderson; father, Craig Lamont Miller of NJ, two brothers: Lamont D. Miller and Jeremy Q. Miller; a special friend, Donnavan Spencer; many natural aunts, uncles and cousins; as well as many adopted grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and a host of other family and friends. Lastly, but certainly not least the family pet, Juliet.

Jasmine highly valued her relationship with God as one of the MOST IMPORTANT components to her success in all other areas. In fact, she was known on WCU campus as a “Prayer Warrior” and in one of her last private moments with her mom she emphasized that the two most important aspects of life are “Salvation and Legacy”, both of which she was very comfortable that she had done her absolute best to attain in her 20 years of living. She also, expressed that “she didn’t want anyone to put their life on hold because of her”. Though she’s no longer in our physical midst she will always be with us in our hearts. Therefore, please honor her legacy by pursuing a life of Learning, Loving and Living according to God’s Will for your life with determination and commitment to succeed just as she’s done!
 


Celebration of life service will be Sunday; 2:30 p.m.; Macedonia Baptist Church-1951 Stanley Lucia Rd, Mt. Holly

    To the families and loved ones of Jasmine Miller, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure. During these difficult times and in the months to follow. My deepest condolences to all your loved ones.

    Our deepest sympathies in your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection. ~~~You also are cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible.
