Obituary

Andrew Michael Jackson Jr. aka JUNIOR was born on July 16, 2019 in Saint Paul, Minnesota to Melissa Jordan and Andrew Jackson Sr.

Junior was a remarkable blessing and a teaching lesson in disguise that Melissa had no knowledge of until Junior graced her with his presence at 11:43 pm July 16, 2019 and Junior was taken from Melissa and rushed to the NICU after only holding her new baby for only 2 minutes. When the NICU doctor came back to her room and said,"Your son is really really really sick", so Melissa just broke not knowing what to do given she gave birth to 4 healthy babies. Junior had many challenges in life from the moment he inhaled air for the very first time. Even though Junior had a very serious and rare genetic medical condition, that didn't stop Junior from being a happy baby into an even happier toddler.

Junior was the life of the party and when he's not watching christian music videos or watching Cocomelon he just enjoyed snuggling, btw, Junior had the best snuggles. Junior had a very long, hard and strenuous fight for his life and Junior fought hard through all his highs and all his lows. Junior's fight was over and he needed to rest so he went to go be with his "twin" Sekaiah. Sekaiah was calling for him, so he joined his sister in heaven and now they will forever be together in flesh as well as in spirit.

Junior was survived by his mother Melissa Jordan, father Andrew Jackson Sr.; eight siblings, Keeshaun Powell, Devante Brown, Dekai Brown, Joanna Sanchez, Hezekaiah Parrish-Jackson, Caden Scott-Jackson; Carla Ballard, Eloise Sanche-Morgan, and Terry Morgan; two great-grandparents, Samella Davis and Charles McCoy; eight aunts, Brianna Hughes, Candice Lewis, Pam Purnip, Erica Ballard, Classi Kennedy, Shacara Kennedy, Nikisha Gaston, Antoinette Gaston; 2 uncles, Adrian Hughes and Christopher Jackson; seven great-aunts, Gladys Harut, Leola Morgan, Vivian Morgan,Elaina Davis, Dawn Cauley-Womack, Belinda Franson, Glenda Parks; one great-uncle, Calvin Womack; and a host of cousins.

Junior's body is no longer here with us on Earth, but in heaven, having the time of his eternal life with his "twin". His voice isn't silenced and his mother is starting a foundation in honor of Junior's name.
