Mother of Three And Beloved Texas Cheerleading Coach Murdered, Boyfriend Arrested

Lewis and her mother ran an academy for cheerleaders and dancers.

A 24-year-old Jasper, Texas, woman, Rosalin “RoRo” Lewis, was found after allegedly being beaten to death in her apartment on Nov. 18. According to KJAS, her alleged killer, boyfriend William Christian Thomas, is being held at the Jasper County Jail, having been arrested on a murder charge. Thomas’s bond has been set for $1 million, and Police Chief Gerald Hall told KJAS that Thomas confessed to killing Lewis but refrained from giving any other details while they build a case against him.

Lewis and her mother, Schwanda Scott, ran an academy for cheerleaders and dancers, Stunning Stars Cheer and Dance Academy, located in Jasper. The Academy produced several pupils who performed at events in the area and traveled to compete in other competitions. The Academy was scheduled to perform at the Christmas in the Park event in Jasper, but that performance was canceled following Lewis’s murder. 

According to the GoFundMe set up by Scott, all the girls that Lewis trained eventually became a cheerleader for Jasper High School.

Lewis also tragically leaves behind three children, Kaelum, Aria, and Alakai. The family says that the money will go to funeral services and savings for Lewis’s three children. So far, the family has collected $2,880 toward an initial goal of $25,000. The post reads in part, “Any amount donated will go towards unexpected funeral expenses and savings for her children. The family thank you in advance and we truly appreciate the love you have for RoRo.” Funeral services for Lewis will be held on Nov. 25.
