In Memoriam: Kenlie Camille Jackson

By  | 
Our precious baby girl, Kenlie Camille Jackson went to be with Jesus after a 9 year battle with Synovial Sarcoma. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving parents and family on July 13, 2017. Kenlie was born on September 1, 2006. September is childhood Cancer awareness month. Kenlie was 10 years old. Kenlie had the most beautiful smile and infectious personality that touched everyone she encountered. She literally lit up the room when she entered. Kenlie had a way of being brutally honest with people, yet her kind demeanor and sense of humor made everyone fall in love with her. Though she dealt with cancer most of her life and endured many, many painful surgeries, procedures and treatments she never let it diminish her spunky spirit. Kenlie was not only an ambassador for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, she was also an inspiration to all who knew her and to those who followed her journey. She will be forever missed by her family and friends. Her parents would like to thank St. Jude Children's Research Hospital who not only treated Kenlie for the last 9 years, but also loved her. Special thanks also to Dr. Victor Santana, Dr. Mike Neal, Dr. Jeffrey Deyo and her St. Jude BFF, nurse Susan Strawn. They would also like to thank the countless doctors, nurses, techs, therapists and everyone else in both Memphis and Baton Rouge who have cared for Kenlie over the last 9 years. Finally, the Jackson's would like to thank all those who followed her journey and prayed for Kenlie. 
Kenlie is survived by her loving parents, Ken and Jennifer Eisworth Jackson; her brother, Cullen Jude Jackson; her grandparents, Jeanette Eisworth, George and Beryl Eisworth, Jimmy and Dell Jackson and Cookie Clark; her Aunts and Uncles, Christi and Chuck Langlois, Dana and Walter Rodgers, Jimmy Jackson and Kay, Rusty Eisworth and Randy Eisworth; her cousins Raegan, Ray, Josh, Shelby, Travis, Dustin, Wesley, Damon, Ellise, Reid, Maddox, Remy and Ethan.
