Melanie Woods: I was woken up yesterday with the news that you were gone. I didn’t want to believe it. We just spoke just before the New Year. You were starting a new job on the tenth. I went to our messages to see if you had sent me a message that I had missed or if indeed it was just a dream. I was angry, so angry I gave myself a headache. I still can’t talk about just how angry I am. You shouldn’t be gone but you are. Know you were loved, Jaffar Jackson. My heart is broken.

Nyox Kirundi :Just woke up to devastating news..we talked jana and you were okay Jaffar Jackson , we had big big plans!!

Peris Mumbi: May there be comfort in knowing that someone special will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Jaffar Jackson my friend and son. We will forever love you.
