By all indication, Morgan State University engineering graduate Jalil George was busy living his dreams and serving his community. Sadly, the budding entrepreneur’s life was cut short. Last week, WBAL-TV reported that students, staff and alumni of Baltimore’s leading historically Black college and university (HBCU) held a vigil to remember George and other victims of gun violence.
Described as an “up-and-coming real estate investor,” George was reportedly killed December 7 in a shooting, one of four separate killings in 24 hours in the same community, local reports said.
According to one television network, George graduated from Morgan State in 2020 and went on to start up a real estate company. News reports say he purchased his first house to fix up and sell five months ago. Photos on his public Facebook account provide glimpses into the story of a rising star. Although the Instagram account is private, @limitlessxrealestate is described as a company focused on house flipping, rehabbing, and wholesale deals.
George was reportedly visiting his property when he was shot.
