Celebrating Black History - Jayson Abraham
February 21, 2023
1. Who are you, and where are you from?
My name is Jayson E. Abraham, and I am the son of a decorated military officer and a state employee. My mother, Colonel Patricia A Simmons-Abraham, was the first black female commander of the 1189th battalion out of Charleston, SC. My father, John, worked in several roles for the SC Department of Transportation for many years.
