May 21, 1981 – October 8, 2011. Born to Bryan Amona and Cynthia Mooney, Jasmine was raised on the shores of Kawailoa and remained a life-long resident of Kailua, O’ahu. She is the granddaughter of William & Lydia Amona and Robert & Jewell Mooney and younger sister of Kaliko Amona McElheny. Jasmine’s most significant legacy is her daughter, Ka’ula, whom she loves more than anything and will always be watching over.

Jasmine graduated from Kailua High and later earned degrees from UH and Chaminade. She shared her Hawaiian heritage as an educator at Lanikai School, Halau Ku Mana, and most recently Kamehameha Schools. She will be remembered for her smile, infectious laugh, and loyal friendship.

Memorial: Saturday, October 22 at Kailua Beach Park Pavilions. Visitation at noon, services at 1 pm. A paddle-out with release of loose flowers and pa’ina will follow. Parking at Lanikai School. Condolences may be sent to P.O. Box 1073, Kailua, HI 96734.
