To whom this may concern,
My name is Scott Jenkins. The most important thing to me is my family. Life can be unfair and unexpected setbacks aren’t uncommon. However, sometimes a real stroke of bad luck can completely relegate you to rock bottom. My mother was killed in the 1995 Alfred P. Murray Bombing in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A mother who raised four kids with a husband that wasn’t successful at keeping a job or steady income, she did well. After my mother (Christi Y. Jenkins) was found my world was obliterated. As the youngest of three siblings, I was the outcast. Only my mother could understand me. As a security measure she left her family with a great life policy and should’ve set my family up for success. My Dad was the beneficiary of half and we were left with half split into four ways. I’m short, my Dad spent the majority of my funds at casinos around the State of Oklahoma. To make things worse or better I should say, he was banned from all casinos in Oklahoma. My siblings were setup and taken care of as far as vehicles, dental, wants and needs. I was promised and received only an apology. After High School, I went on to college and gained my B.A. then went even further to gain a Trade School Licensure all on my own. Nothing could stop me even after a serious car accident during my studies for my B.A., I walked and used the bus system to finish. Skipping to the present, I lost everything. My job was lost due to being incarcerated without being charged for a crime but for missing a payment in another county for a case that was closed in 2017. My now toxic ex girlfriend was dead set on ruining my life because I was leaving her and focusing on what’s most important to me. In short, she stole my car keys out of my car concealing this theft by asking for cigarettes before I left the apartments we shared. I didn’t notice at all. I found out when I was finished washing and vacuuming out my car at a car wash near our apartment. I called the police which amounted to nothing as she wouldn’t answer the door or any more of my phone calls after she told me she threw them in a field. Eight hours later I bypassed our apartment door locks and found her sleeping. I woke her up and asked for my keys, which turned into a loud verbal argument. I decided to walk away and call an emergency locksmith as I was walking back to my car. Seven police cars surrounded me and arrested me in false allegations of violence. After the police found her allegations to e in fact, false I was to be released. However, the was this warrant from another county about missing a payment. The officer apologized but had to book me in the count jail with a bond of $100. I spent 24 days in jail. Once released, I had nothing but my clothes and my wallet. My phone was stolen which directly resulted in my job being terminated. I later found that my ex girlfriend had taken my phone as the officers left it where I placed it near the vacuums at the car wash where my car was parked. And since she had my keys, she stole even more of my property and filed an EPO five days after I was still incarcerated. It took me a while to get somewhere to call my brother for a ride to get back into the city and call my employer. A stranger gave me a ride which still brings tears to my eyes. Finally, my brother let me use his phone so I could use the internet to lookup my managers phone number and call about what happened only to be told he terminated my position on hour before I called him. I did call in jail but no one answered. Went to find out about my car, the dealership got it out of impound and immediately resold it before I had a chance to recover it. This was a real stroke of bad luck. I get the neglect about the fines owed. But to lose everything was just mortifying. Living in Oklahoma makes commuting bus bus difficult depending on where you’re located. I’m at the mercy of an old high school friend that’s giving me time to gather myself. I appealed the termination which was approved. And was denied unemployment which was my plan to get back into another vehicle. This is where I’m asking for help as I work hard and the only thing that’s preventing me is a vehicle. I have no money and can’t get back to work without a vehicle. I need help and will get back to work to support my three kids and rebuild after leaving an incredibly toxic relationship. Thank you for reading, your time and consideration.
