If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind... Philippians 2: 1~2
We bow in humble submission to the will of God as this loving family has charged our staff to make known to all that their beloved: Mr. Haron Jessie of Jacksonville, Florida, answered the master's call and exchanged time for eternity on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
MR. HARON JESSIE was born to Frankie Mae Jessie Jackson on May 10, 1936, in Graves, Terrell County, Georgia. At an early age, he accepted Christ as his Savior at Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Graves, Georgia.
Haron attended the public schools of Terrell County, Georgia. He was a shrewd businessman, and his knowledge was vast. He believed in perfecting his craft and lived by the Scripture II Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” The work he loved the most was using his innate ability to repair heaters to keep families warm as well as delivering kerosene and diesel to residences via Jessie’s Fuel Oil.
Haron passed away on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. He was preceded in death by his son, Bobby Jessie; daughter-in-law, Rosa Lee Jessie; nine sisters, Janice Collier, Florence Hill, Shirley Banks, Ola Williams, Ira Benjamin, Lillie Brown, Annie Clara Jessie, Patricia Malone, and Annie Malone; six brothers, Levi Lyles, Robert Collier, Eddie Brown, Albert Benjamin, Walter Malone, and Joe Malone; two stepsisters, Geneva Bell and Irene Jackson; and two stepbrothers, Clint Jackson and Willie Fred Jackson.
Precious memories of Haron will forever remain with those who loved him: his wife, Ruby Jessie; children, Haron Jessie, Jr., Mary Lois Jessie, Leon (Vivian) Jessie, Kama Lee Jessie, Larry Jessie, Michael (Wanda) Bankhead, Robert Botford, and Sherman (Carla) Jessie; siblings, Mildred Smith, Dr. Marvin (Ruth) Brown, Larry Collier, Lillie Pearl Lumpkin, Dora Jackson, Otha Jackson, Bobbie (James) Hall, Beulah (Eugene) Williams, Diane (Nate) Flood, and Nellie Porter; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
