A memorial service is planned for Thursday, June 13, with the venue to be announced soon. Explaining the family’s decision regarding her final resting place, Jahmby’s father said, “The memorial service will be on Thursday, and more details will be announced before the funeral on Friday at Lang’ata Cemetery. She will be buried there because her grandmother is buried there, and the family wanted her to be buried close to her.”

He also highlighted Jahmby’s commitment to her community, expressing her wish for her projects to continue posthumously. “She said if her projects could continue, she would be happy. That was her reason for running for the parliamentary seat of Dagoreti North.”
