Linston Jeffrey Jackson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Thomas Jefferson Hospital on April 21, 1971 to Geraldine Jackson Diggins and Linston Cox.
Linston was educated in the Philadelphia public school system and later obtained his GED.
Linston was known for his love of dogs and cars. He even once convinced his mother to house a dog for him of which she grew to love, so much so that she prepared rice and gravy for the dog every Monday on her day off.
Choc as he was affectionately known enjoyed family gatherings, especially where food was involved. He would often invite himself and could be found seated in front of the mac and cheese.
In recent years Linston and his brother became very close, serving as best man when he got married. It was Jamille who he called to his aid and stayed with him during his final hours.
Linston was adored and loved by many.
Those who remain to cherish his memory: his daughters, Leslie Khasheda and Brianna; granddaughter, Jaylie Madison; mother, Geraldine Diggins; father, Linston Cox; brother, Jamille (Robin); aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and special friend Andraya Jorden.
