Co-worker speaks out about a friend murdered in a domestic violence incident

TUCSON - It was two weeks ago today, that police say 22-year-old Jasmine Wollack was shot and killed by her boyfriend.

The story struck a nerve with many, in and out of the Tucson community.

A co-worker of Wollack’s spoke with News 4 Tucson about her friend and how she had no idea what Wollack was going through.

Tucson police say 27-year-old Taris Ford-Dillard first shot his girlfriend, and then turned the gun on himself. Court records show that Ford-Dillard was indicted on several counts of domestic violence, including assault with a deadly weapon and kidnapping.

Before she lost her life, Wollack worked as an assistant to physical therapist, Pati Stein.

“She had such a talent, she had the best smile and she would make all of her patients feel better and happier,” Stein said.

According to co-workers, Wollack, whom they called ‘Jazzy’, was a beautiful person, inside and out.

“Jazzy was very quiet and very private,” Stein said.

This is why her coworkers believed Wollack didn’t share with them the living hell she was going through.

“If we had a time machine we would all go back and save her. “

Stein said they've had a difficult time coming to grips with the tragic situation.  So they are supporting each other and trying to brighten the rooms they walk into, just as their friend did.

Stein said she never asked Wollack how she was feeling on a day-to-day basis and that is one of her biggest regrets. She wants others to know to please ask friends, co-workers, and family if they are okay because simply asking can save a life.
