ST.JOHNS, Fla. — Tristyn Bailey’s community wants to continue to shine a light on her memory as it prays for justice.
Cheer commissioner Tanya White, who worked with Tristyn for two years, says keeping her memory alive is the community’s main priority right now.
Action News Jax first told you earlier this month when the cheer community Tristyn belonged to began to sell shirts in her memory.
They’ve since sold hundreds of shirts with all proceeds going to the Bailey family.
“We had to pass it on to our bigger shirt company,” White explained.
Beyond helping the family, efforts like this also help keep Tristyn top of mind.
“We just want to keep her spirit alive and forever,” White emphasized.
Even as the girls in her cheer community continue to cope with their loss.
“They’re just moving along,” White explained, “but they do truly miss Tristyn and are heartbroken over all of it.”
White says she has found comfort knowing this case is in the state attorney’s hands now.
“He’s focused and on-top of things and very passionate and this is exactly what the Bailey family needs, the community needs,” she said.
While the support for the family grows, so will the prayers for justice.
“I know they’re very appreciative of the community support,” White said, “and we can just pray for justice and keep her memory alive.”
