Hours after Jacob Blake was shot Sunday, he looked at his mother in a Milwaukee hospital room, cried and told her he was sorry.
“I don’t want to be a burden on anybody. I want my babies. Call my boss,” Julia Jackson recalls her son telling her. She comforted him and had to redirect the conversation, Jackson told CNN’s Don Lemon Tuesday night.
That’s just the kind of man Blake’s family says he is. He’s a father, a son, an uncle and a brother who’s focused on his loved ones, his sister says.
“His kids are his world. But not only that, his family is his world,” Zietha Blake says. “He’s upset because we’re hurt, we’re upset. He doesn’t even care about himself. He’s more so worried about us.”
