Obituary for Kenneth Aaron Jackson

Kenneth Aaron Jackson (K-Rock) was born September 1, 1961 to the late Christine Mims Jackson. He departed our lives on May 1, 2019 at St. Michael's Hospital in Newark. Kenny always kept a smile on his face & made sure you knew his name and his presence were noticed from his whistle. Kenny was the #1 Temptations fan. Let's not forget he had all the steps down packed. If you knew Kenny you knew his love for music.

"Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we shall dance."

Kenny attended the Newark/ East Orange school system. He worked for General Hose, Baltusrol Golf Course, Virginia Union University and various other jobs. Kenny loved church and he attended St. John's Church (Newark) every Sunday.

Kenny’s spirit will live on through his family & friends and every memory shall always have you cracking a smile. His strength will live beyond us & teach us "behind every smile there may be pain." Kenny gave and carried so much love for his loved ones and taught his kids, "The mind is a terrible thing to waste." He was motivational and inspirational in his own unique way. He will forever be missed.

"I used to think that I cannot go on & life was an awful song. I think about it every night and day, spread my wings and fly away."

Kenny leaves to treasure his memories: 4 children, Duquan Jackson (Quan), Kenneth A. Jackson Jr. (Nucum), Al-Tariq Jackson (Riq) and Kennecia Jackson (Niki); 1 stepson, Quadir Mclean (Moochie); 3 grandchildren, Nasir Mclean (Nas), Tyler Green (Tiger Man) and Zaria Jackson (Baby Z); his estranged wife, Margaret Jackson; 4 siblings, Christopher Jackson (Chris), Jerry Jackson (Pete), Naima Abdullah (Denise) and Dennis Jackson (Terrell); along with a countless amount of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives.
