In 2005 she met the love of her life, Jamar Willis Blackmon. They were married on July 8, 2006. Desiree’ chose a career as a Homemaker, because she took GREAT pride in taking care of her family and building a RIGHTOUS home. She LOVED it! When she decided to leave the workforce, she had a clear plan and vision that was 1000% implemented and most importantly FULFILLED.  She was an extremely compassionate, loving, caring, and selfless human being. She always went the extra mile to ensure everyone and anyone she encountered felt loved and special. She lived life to the absolute fullest through simple pleasures such as spending special time with her husband and children, watching Razorback games, and graciously entertaining family and friends in her home.
