It's a sad day for the Caddo Parish community. The Sheriff's Office reports 9-year-old Jamarion Daughtery died yesterday after a battle with cancer.

Jamarion was the son of Caddo Deputy Jacqueline Daughtery. He suffered from Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

A wake Jamarion will be held from 6-8PM Friday, October 2, at the Greater Hope Baptist Church, located at 4355 Greenwood Road. His funeral is at 11AM Saturday, October 3, also at Greater Hope, with interment at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery, 6915 West 70th Street.

Jamarion was recently honored by Caddo deputies, who made him an honorary deputy and presented him with a certificate, patches and a ride-along in the Special Response Team's armored vehicle.
