Obituary for Jeffrey Lockett

Jeffrey Lockett was born February 3, 1964 in Newark, New Jersey to Mrs. Grace A. Johnson and a loving family. He was the second child of her three children and her only boy. Jeff was an adorable infant and a rambunctious toddler. He lost his left arm as an adolescent; however that did not take away the love of life that he had. His family fondly remembers the loving, countless times that he would use that left stump to give them all “noogies”.

Jeffrey, also known as “Jazz”, graduated from Southside High School in Newark. During this time Jeff’s love for music grew. He then became a DJ, which is how the name Jazz was acquired. Everyone who knew him, knew that he LOVED music. He even produced a few mix-tapes in the early 90s. Anyone who encountered Jazz would tell you he was a gentle soul and wanted nothing more than just to be ok in this world. His laugh was infectious...if you were having a bad day his laugh alone would surely brighten it and make you forget, even if it was just for a moment.

Jeffrey was preceded in death by his aunts (other Moms), Doris Lockett and Catherine Jenkins, and his mother, Grace A. Johnson. He leaves to cherish his memory: his daughters, Ernestine and Marie Lockett; sisters, Mary Johnson and Geneva Lockett; nieces, Veronica Irvin and Michelle Milfort; and nephew, Raymond Lockett; as well as a host of other family and friends.
