As a memorial grows to pay tribute to a 24-year-old mother and aspiring rapper killed in a crash in Westchester, friends are attempting to raise funds for her child.

Emajee Jones, of Yonkers, died following the crash on Saturday, April 27, when the car she was driving hit a concrete barrier on Trinity Street, police said.

Passengers, including Jones' 3-year-old daughter, another child and a friend were not hurt.

At the crash site, candles in the form of an E have been placed to honor Jones as " loving, caring, full of excitement, and a colorful personality," they said on a GoFundMe post.

"To know her was to love her, to love her you had to take all she came with we would never meet a person like her again she leaves behind a beautiful bright loving child who only knew how amazing her mother really was, losing her really hurt so many hearts," wrote her friend Christian Dee, who organized the fundraiser. 

A Whole Foods employee, Jones was known for rapping about her life and what she has been through, Dee asked all to remember Jones in their prayers.
