Jackson, Abdul Obituary

Abdul Ishmael Jackson departed this life on December 26, 2012 due to an illness. He lived a short but very memorable life.

Abdul, affectionately called “Mel”, was born in Washington D.C on October 16, 1981 to Deborah Laneata Jackson and Stanley Jackson.

He attended William Beanes Elementary School, Anne Beers Elementary School, Andrew Jackson Middle School, and Phelps Vocational High School.

Mel enjoyed listening to music, cleaning, cooking, photography, doing hair, fashion, spending time with friends and family, and making loved ones laugh. Some of his favorite sayings were “Get into it”, “Dort”, “Work” and “Yees!”

Although Mel didn’t have any children of his own, he loved and cared for his nieces, nephews, and little cousins as if they were his.

Mel was survived by his mother, Deborah Laneata Jackson, his father Stanley Jackson; his siblings Servon Gatewood, LaStanja Jackson, Karen Lucas-Patten, Lisa Lucas, Kareem Jackson (deceased), Akia Dupree, Jamal Dupree, and Angela Jackson; his aunts LaWannaha Townsend, Sylvia Williams; his uncles Ralph Lucas, Benjamin Lucas, Ronald Lucas, Leslie Demus Jr., Leon Jackson, and Elmore Jackson; his nieces Shannon Massey, Zachia Jones, Tiffany Wimbish, Tulisha King and Kayla Bridgett; his nephews Kevin Lucas, Kareem Muslim, Frank King, DeMarco King, and Kyree Muslim; his great nephews Tyree , Jayden, Amaree, Asante, Kevin Jr., and Nicholas; his great nieces London, and Myonna; and his close cousins Nakia, Kermit, Penny, Lynette, April, Rhonette, Renee and a host of other family, and friends.
