Obituary

Jakkar Green-Hosey, also known as (JaJa/Kari) was born May 15, 1990 to Gaylyn Green and Patricia Hosey in Aurora, IL.

He accepted Christ at an early age. He attended school at Joliet Central High School.

Jakkar departed to join God's heavenly host on Friday, November 13, 2020.

The Heavenly Father heard Jakkar saying, "I'm tired." The hand of mercy closed those tired eyes, peace took control, and relieved him of all pain and suffering. 

Jakkar had an extraordinary love for dancing and cracking jokes. He loved people dearly, especially both family and those he called friends. He was known for his kindness, willingness to forgive, unconditional love for everyone, and his giving spirit. 

He leaves behind his parents; Gaylyn Green and Patricia Hosey; grandmother, Frankie L. Hosey of Aurora, IL; a daughter, Janyla of Joliet, IL; nine siblings, five sisters, and four brothers, Shannon Hosey Lewis (Willie Lewis) of Aurora, IL,  Rakeem Green-Hosey (Christiana) of Fort Bragg, NC, Nakia Hosey of Joliet, IL, Ashanti Hosey of Kankakee, IL; Tyler Green-Hosey of Joliet, IL, Jasmine Fields-Hosey of Aurora, IL, Dimitri Green-Hosey of Joliet IL; Jaquan Green-Hosey of Aurora IL, and Aaliyah Hosey of Joliet, IL. He also leaves a host of aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins, relatives, and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emma Lee Green, Emma G. Green, Stoney Green, and Annie L. Wright, a sister, Santiana Hosey; his uncles, George Wright, and Peter Paul Fogel.

But I do not want you to be ignorant brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. I Thessalonians 4:13-14

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord.  For we walk by faith, not by sight.  We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
