After being married for years, Jasmine and John Mensah separated when their kids, Joey Claypool and Chase Claypool were still young. The reason for their divorce is kept under wraps. Nevertheless, these two settled for co-parenting their kids and would turn up for their son’s every game.

Though John didn’t live under the same roof with his children and his ex-wife, they still had love and respect for each other. Jasmine raised her kids as a single mother most of the time due to which she had to work hard to make ends meet.

Jasmine married Palmer Carvery after her separation from John. She became the stepmother of Carvery’s kids, Jacob Carvery and Kallie.

Claypool’s Daughter Killed Herself In 2011

Before her marriage with John, Jasmine and her former flame, Clint Baga became parents to a girl, Ashely Claypool. The 17-year-old killed herself on October 20, 2011, and her mother was the first to know. Jasmine couldn’t comprehend the fact that her daughter was gone and broke down in front of her son, Chase. However, she didn’t let her grief come in the way of raising her sons.

Besides, the Miami Dolphins star was also close to his late half-sister. Chase once said: “The last time I saw her she yelled my name down the street, she asked me how things were going. She was really proud of me.” He also has a tattoo on his right arm that he inscribed in honor of his sister.

Jasmine’s Step-Son, Jacob Carvery Helped Her Son Chase to Become an NFL Player

Jasmine’s son, Joey Claypool, and her step-son, Jacob Carvery played football with their youngest sibling, Chase when he was in elementary school. The game even helped them get out of the tragic loss of their sister.

Chase played both football and basketball in high school and he was good at both. However, it was his step-brother Jacob who helped Chase stick with football rather than basketball. He would even post the clips of his brother’s game on Facebook. Moreover, Jacob contacted Division I football programs for Chase. These two still have a strong bond and as of now, Jacob is the manager of Chase.

Jasmine Was Against Chase Playing Football At First

Jasmine shuffled the papers away when her son, Chase wanted to register for football when he was seven. He returned with the same request the next year but she declined again. She thought he would be a great lawyer instead of a footballer. Ultimately, she let her son pursue his dreams.
