A neighbor on a listserv wrote:

“Jewel’s generosity knew no bounds and she was constantly helping those around her with little thought of herself. Just hours before she was killed, she had cleaned up our whole block after working all night. I’ll never forget the baby shower she threw us on the sidewalk before Anoush was born. Many neighbors can speak to her kindness and compassion, and she will truly be missed.”

NBC Washington reported:

“Hall was a custodian on Capitol Hill for 30 years and was a fixture in her Northeast neighborhood. She was known to help the homeless, according to her daughter, Maxcine Lewis.”
