My best friend, and only Sister, died of Covid-19 related issues at Einstein on April 7, 2020.

Patricia Harriet Jackson was a lifelong resident of the Bronx; she attended PS 31, and Clarke Junior High School in the So. Bronx, and then completed her education at Walton High School, City College, Hostos and Lehman College.

Ms. Pat, or “Momma Condom,” worked as a HIV/AIDS Educator at Montefiore Adolescent AIDS Program up until her retirement in 2018.

She leaves to mourn her son, Damian, his wife Rachel, and grandchildren, her devoted brother Charles, the “Village”, as well as a host of friends, families and “adopted” children across the Bronx, and New York City.
