Tina Jacox

Tina Louise Jacox affectionately known as Big Mama or Lady Tee of Brooklyn, New York went home to meet Jesus on September 11th 2021 at the age of 64. Tina was born one of six children to the late Joseph and Melvina Jacox of Brooklyn New York on December 6th, 1957. She studied at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn New York then went
on to work for the Board of Education where she started out as a cafeteria worker. Tina was ambitious and knew she wanted more for herself and her children so she enrolled in multiple community colleges where she obtained accredited certifications and landed positions such as teacher and ultimately case manager/guidance counselor in the span of her 30 plus year career. She spent most of her career working at elementary school PS 316 in Brooklyn, New York as well as Jackie Robinson Junior High School 375 in Brooklyn, New York. Tina was a proud member of the
local union DC 37.

Throughout Tina’s life she had two primary focuses, her two sons Dawan and Kamal, who she loved very much and affectionately called Dee and Fats and her G babies Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald, Dante, Sincere Kamal and Saint Kamal, David and Nasheem. Tina had a saying only steps are outside that truly was the beauty of Tina. Tina had a strong faith in God, through all her suffering she never questioned God until her dying day.

Tina joins in heaven her mother Melvina Jacox, her father Joseph Jacox, Sr., her older brother Joseph Jacox, her older brother Michael Jacox, her younger brother Jeffrey Jacox, Sr. Tina leaves to celebrate and cherish her
life, two younger brothers James Jacox and Scott Jacox, two grieving sons, Dawan and Kamal, who will truly miss their mother, eight grandchildren who loved her dearly, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews
