October 28, 1986 ~ December 9, 2019 (age 33)

Obituary

Jehrad L. Jackson entered into this life  with his twin sister on October 28, 1986 with a very short life expectancy.  However, God saw fit to continue his life until his mission was accomplished and departed this earthly life at the age of 33, on  December 9, 2019, at I U Health University Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana.

 

At an early age he accepted Christ as his Savior and baptized at Jerusalem Baptist Church by the late Rev. Dr. Samuel Walker.   

He attended Northside High School and enjoyed watching sports and spending time with his family.  Jehrad was an outgoing and loving young man and with love of his family he managed to beat all odds the doctors placed on him at birth. He was one who could come into a room and change the whole atmosphere.   
 

Although he had some health limitations he still had a desire to be around people. He was formerly employed by Scott's Grocery, Fresh Thyme Market and Sodexo Corporation.

Jehrad was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emma J. King, Albert B. King and Sherman Jacobs Sr.


He leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Shirlene Jackson; father, Albert B. Jackson; son, Jehrad L. Jackson Jr.; brother, Andron Jackson; twin sister, Sha-Ron Jackson; grandmother, Bernice Jacobs; nieces, Jaylene Fuqua and Adrianna Rhines; nephew, Kamari Jackson along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
