Javon Darnell Blackwell Sr. Aug. 28, 1976 - Dec. 30, 2018

Javon Darnell Blackwell Sr. (also known as JB), was born Aug. 28, 1976, to Rebecca Blackwell and Leo Harris in Chicago, Illinois.

He attended Alexander Dumas Elementary School and Hyde Park Career Academy in Chicago, Illinois.

In the year 2000, he moved to Marion, where he met and married his first wife and mother of the Kings (Javon Jr. and Jayzon), Diana Scott.

In 2016, he met and married his current wife, Arianna Wise, with daughter Azaryia Wise, whom he loved very much.

JB is loved by many. He was always joking around, making you feel loved. He definitely loved his family, especially his Kings; they were his heart and soul. JB was an inspiration to everyone he encountered. To know him was to love him. He will truly be missed by plenty.

He leaves to cherish his memories, his mother Rebecca Jones (Leroy S. Sr.); his wife and daughter Arianna and Azaryia Wise; sisters Sherreese Blackwell (Jerry S.), Toccara Jackson (Don J.); brother Maurice Jones Jr. (Domique J.); Diana Scott, Durand Hamilton Jr., TeMarrie’ Jones, four nephews, three nieces, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends.

There will be no funeral, per JB’s request. Arrangements were handled by Gholar & Gholar Funeral Services.
