In memory of Jojo Mclemore

It is with heavy a heart that I’m writing this today. As everybody now knows, our beloved Jojo Mclemore took his seat in heaven yesterday, 12/15/17. Jojo was a 31 year old, father of four, husband, son, brother, and friend. He fought his battle for a long time, it was tough and it was hard to watch, but as always, Jojo kept on fighting. He has successfully left behind memories with every single one us. Everything we all will remember about him will be laughter, kindness, and love. That’s who he was. Jojo always gave everything he had to provide for his wife, Brenda, and his children. I believe the next step in this physical world is to honor him properly and give him a final resting place that exudes everlasting peace. The last thing someone wants to worry about after they’ve lost their soulmate is how they are going to pay for a funeral and every day expenses, but yet, that’s where Brenda is. I’m asking you today on behalf of Brenda, Jocelyn, Jalyza, Joseph, & Jazmyn Mclemore to look inside of your hearts, think of all the memories you have with Jojo and if you’re able to contribute anything towards the cost of his funeral, please know that it’s appreciated beyond measure. It’s understandable that it’s Christmas time and contributing might be hard but there is no amount too small. Should you not be able to contribute, please keep the Mclemores in your thoughts and prayers. Jojo was the epitome of a stand up guy. He made friends every single place he went. He loved his family fiercely. He will always always always be remembered exactly that way.

Thank you all for your contributions, thoughts, & prayers.
