Overview of Jhonte' Peters

Jhonte’ Jamal Peters was a beloved son, brother, grandchild and father whose life was taken far too soon.

Jhonte’ Jamal Peters was born in Forsyth County, NC in May of 1980. He graduated from Parkland High School in Winston-Salem, NC. He moved to Omaha, NE to live with relatives only six years prior to his murder. He was a father to a daughter who was only six years old at the time of his murder and was living in North Carolina. Jhonte’ was known as the comedian in his family. He was always cracking jokes and spreading joy with his amazing sense of humor.

“What I can tell you about my son is that he was a loved and respected individual with a great sense of humor. He was a great comedian who would always keep our family going.” - Beretta Peters, Jhonte’s mother.

Jhonte’ did have a criminal record. He spent time in Nebraska Department of Correctional Services facilities once in 2010 when he was convicted of felony burglary and once in 2012, when he was convicted for being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon, a BB gun. At the time of his murder, he had completed his sentence and had reintegrated back into life as a law-abiding citizen.

Jhonte was shot in Omaha, NE in July of 2013.

Around midnight on July 22, 2013, Jhonte’ was shot in an alley between 18th Street and Willis Street in Omaha, NE by an unidentified gunman.

People who witnessed the shooting reported that the shooter fled in a car, but they were unable to come up with a solid description of the car.
