Obituary of Mackai "LiL MJ" Jackson
In loving memory of Mackai Bishop Jackson. He was born on Wednesday, September 24th 2003 at 7:39 pm at Mount Sinai Hospital, weighing 7 pounds and 10 ounces. Mackai was the youngest of three sons, Tyrell and Raheem Jackson.
He attended Regent Park, Duke of York, Lord Dufferin, Queen Alexander Public School, and Eastdale Collegiate Institute, as well as attending St. Bartholomew’s Children’s Centre and Kiwanis Boys & Girls Club (K-Club). Mackai played soccer with the Toronto Eagles soccer team for 3 years.
Mackai was the light of any party. He was always silly and playful with his cousins and close friends. His presence was always uplifting and he had the best, most comforting hugs. His smile, so big and bright, would melt anyone’s heart. He was very brave and energetic and always took pride in all that he put his mind towards doing. He was athletic and loved sports and had a love for animals, music and dancing.
Mackai was passionate, loving, a go-getter / business man. I remember the time Mackai raided his mother’s kitchen by taking all the snacks, juices and pop. He also made cupcakes that day and went to sell everything outside of Fresh Co. He carried his mother’s small table with a tablecloth to set up his items to sell. He labeled the prices of each item and presented it to the public for sale and stayed until everything on that table was sold. Mackai came home and told his mom that she needed to go buy him snacks for school the next day because the cupboards were empty. He indicated that his money was his and she needed to use her own money to purchase the items back. With that being said, he was very helpful, loyal to the core and had the strength of a warrior.
Mackai was also a Mamas boy. His love for his mother was like no other and he was Natasha’s right hand.
Mackai is also known to be a ladies' man.
Mackai will truly be missed and never forgotten as he sleeps in heavenly peace
