The man fatally shot in a Biscayne Bay high-rise condominium was a New Jersey-raised custom jewelry designer.
Miami police identified the man killed Friday at the Blue on the Bay condominium, 601 NE 36th St., as 34-year-old Marley Jackson.
Jackson’s mother, Pat Jackson, has had a custom jewelry store in Cape May, New Jersey, for 38 years. Marley Jackson was starting in the same business in Miami, where many athletes and entertainers love to get customized jewelry.
“He is taking the Miami jewelry scene by storm — aiming to be Miami’s #1 jewelry designer, he is making amazing pieces!” Pat Jackson enthused in a Facebook post on his birthday. “Love you son, we are so proud of you!”
