MINNEAPOLIS — Jacqueline Towns, mother of NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns, passed away Monday afternoon following a lengthy battle with coronavirus. Karl-Anthony, who plays power forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves, raised eyebrows on March 24th when he announced his mother was placed in a medically induced coma. Poor Jacqueline fought as long as she could. But that ‘rona is a b*tch! The basketball community is understandably shook. The team released a statement.

“The Towns family is heartbroken by the untimely passing of Jacqueline Towns due to complications as a result of COVID-19,” the statement reads. “Jackie, as she was affectionately known among family and friends, had been battling the virus for more than a month when she succumbed on April 13th.”

“Jackie was many things to many people,” the statement continues. “[She was] a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. The matriarch of the Towns family, she was an incredible source of strength; a fiery, caring and extremely loving person who touched everyone she met.

“Her passion was palpable and her energy will never be replaced.”

Karl-Anthony’s father, Karl Towns Sr., also contracted COVID-19.

But he made a full recovery.

    I wonder how they paid him to say his mother died. People that think this is fake is stupid


  25. My condolences to his family 🙏🙏

  26. Radoslav Takev Jr.

    Wow, I kind of saw it coming after hearing about the diagnosis tho

  27. This is why I won’t visit my mom or dad. Because this virus is dangerous. You can have it and not even know and give it to someone else who’s older and it can kill them. And even worst alot of people get it and get rid of it not even knowing they had it. It sucks. I want to visit my mom and dad so bad but I’d feel bad if I had it and they get sick. Sucks man!

  28. rip jackie

  29. Y’all should take it seriously….
    Wash you hands and don’t forget to Pray.🙏

    Share never-ending Love and Care♥️
