Woman Called Life: ‘Shining Light’ for Children of Syracuse Dies During Panic at Rochester Concert

Syracuse, New York. Her name meant life, and she tried to give the children a good life.

Aisha Haskins-Stevens, 35, from Syracuse, extended a helping hand to students at Blodgett High School. She called them her “babies” and offered her love. She was also the head coach for the Pop Warner cheerleading squad in Kirk Park.

She died on March 8 in a stampede at a rap concert in Rochester on March 5, police said. Authorities said the hype may have been caused by false reports of a shooting.

While Haskins-Stevens fought for her life, her mother stood next to her hospital bed and read all the get-well cards from her Blodgett children.

“I love you,” the card read. “I hope I see you soon.

Her sister Kia Washington and her mother Eloise Jean LeFlore spoke to Syracuse.com at LeFlore’s West Side Dining Room. The table was covered with postcards and flowers. A large portrait of Haskins-Stevens hung on the wall between her mother and sister.
