The condition of Jazmine Lee, 12, the Inverness Middle School student who was injured in a motorcycle accident Oct. 8 that killed her father, Thomas Lee Jr., is improving, according to Jazmine’s uncle, Jeff Lee.

She has been in a coma at Tampa General Hospital since the accident; however, she is starting to wake up and has been responding to people, Lee said.

“She’s progressing, but it’s still a long road to recovery. She’s going to have to relearn how to use her body,” he said.

He added that she hasn’t completely come out of the coma, but the family has high hopes that she will.

A memorial service for her father, Thomas Lee, has been put on hold until Jazmine can be a part of it.

At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, there will be a “Get Unleashed for Jazzy” fundraising dance and music show at Inverness Middle School cafeteria, sponsored by Dance Central Studio in Inverness, where Jazmine has danced since she was 5.
