Maurice "REESE" Jackson was the President of JR Construction. He started this buisiness in 2010 to help young black youth in the Chicago Englewood area learn a trade and develope a skill that they will use for the rest of their lives. Only five months after starting the buisiness Reese life was cut short by an heart attact. The family and the neighborhood was devastated by the new of Reese's passing. We decided to purchase a vacant lot in the neighborhood that was run down by gang members and street people. We wanted to pay tribute to Maurice "REESE" Jackson by having a park named in his memory. The owner sold the lot to us for $350 in back taxes in 2014. Now after two years of paying our propety taxes on the lot, the City of Chicago is saying that we now owe $16,000. in back property taxes on the lot dated back to 2007. We are keeping the gangs and the street people off the lot but we dont want to lose the Maurice "REESE" Jackson Memorial Park because it means so much to the black youth in the community. Our redemtion period to pay the $16,000. in back property taxes is December 14 ,2016. Your help in this regard will be so greatly appreciated.
