Jermaine Thomas was a family man who loved his relatives unconditionally before the early Saturday shooting that ended his life, his cousin said.

“This is really hard for us right now,” said Renisha Thomas of Fort Worth.

Jermaine Thomas, 38, was found fatally shot about 1:45 a.m. at a car wash in the Red Bird area, police said. He was a Mansfield native who had deep ties to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, his relatives said.

A Dallas police patrol sergeant was alerted to the scene after a passerby told the officer about an unresponsive person lying on the ground of Camp Wisdom Carwash at 7171 American Way, near Interstate 20 and South Westmoreland Road.

The sergeant found Jermaine Thomas unconscious with a gunshot wound on the floor of the self-service car wash. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Renisha Thomas said she had lived with her cousin for years. She said he was close to his relatives and would always watch over the younger children in the family.

“My cousin had a big heart,” Renisha Thomas said. “He was so funny. He loved his family no matter what was going on. We stayed laughing at just about anything.”

Jermaine Thomas was an alumnus of Eastern Hills High School in Fort Worth and a graduate of Dallas College Brookhaven Campus, his cousin said. She added he was known for being stylish — he loved to wear his shades and his favorite white Ralph Lauren Polo.

“You would never see him without his bad shades,” his cousin said.
