A Florida woman proudly recalled on Facebook how she went from being homeless to “making six figures” just hours before she was shot to death early Thursday.
Makeva Jenkins was fatally shot at her home in upscale Lake Worth after writing on social media that “I’m in awe of how far I’ve come.”
Jenkins, who was 33, wrote in the post late Wednesday night that “we overcame being homeless in 2013 and 2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures.”
“No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business,” she wrote. “I’m saying this to say, anyone can do it. It takes determination and consistency.”

That was Jenkins’ last post on her Facebook page.
A masked suspect had knocked on her door just after 2 a.m. Thursday, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Jenkins was shot following an altercation, and the suspect fled in the family’s car.
Jenkins, the mother of three children, according to the Palm Beach Post, later died from her wounds.
“Regretfully, the news reports are true,” a friend or family member posted on her Facebook page on Thursday. “The family of Makeva Jenkins asks that their privacy be respected at this most trying time.”

Stunned family and neighbors stand outside Jenkins’ home Thursday.

A relative told the Palm Beach Post that “everybody loved her.”

However, other relatives fear ‘that public pride,’ may have led to her being shot to death barely two hours after that post.
Jenkins managed a business consulting company, The Prime Enterprise Group, which creates business plans and marketing strategies for entrepreneurs and small businesses, according to its Facebook page.
Her business, a relative remarked, revolved around helping others succeed.
