The mother of Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns has died due to complications from COVID-19.
Jacqueline Cruz-Towns had been fighting the virus for more than a month.
The Towns family issued a statement describing her as “an incredible source of strength” and “a fiery, caring, and extremely loving person who touched everyone she met.”
Now it looks like Jacqueline Towns will receive a tribute in her native New Jersey as well. A local newspaper, the Courier News and Home News Tribute, is taking out a full page tribute for Towns as she was laid to rest by her family.
