Jennifer Jean Isaac was born on March 5, 1952, in Washington, D. C. to Samuel and Mabel Isaac. She was raised by her entrepreneurial parents who owned a thriving shoe shop, dry cleaners, and taxicab service in North West Washington, D.C. Jennifer attended Cardozo High School where she met her first and only boyfriend, Gary Mock. She was a cheerleader and he was a star football player. They became inseparable and married soon after they graduated from Cardozo in 1970. To that union was born three sons, Gary, II, Jovan and Christopher. With all three children in tow, the young couple began a life of adventure. They enjoyed traveling as often as possible— going to beaches, skiing, parasailing, hiking, flying, and riding motorcycles. Before entering the business world, Jennifer completed her studies at the Washington School for Secretaries. She had an illustrious thirty-six year career at the Federal Communications Commission before retiring in 2013. As their children got older, Jennifer and Gary continued their life of adventure, traveling all over the globe enjoying the various cultures and international cuisine. Jennifer loved Jesus with all her heart and let her witness be evident by the conversation of her life. That conversation was always full of joy, laughter, and giving. Whether it was sharing an encouraging word, a home cooked meal, or hosting a last minute baby shower, Jennifer loved to give. She was a kind, strong, pure-hearted woman who gave sacrificially, but never sought credit or praise. She had a special relationship with each and every person she touched. After fifty-one and-a-half years of marriage, Jennifer departed this life with her husband by her side on January 15, 2022. In her last moments, her husband encouraged her to take the Lord’s hand and walk with Him to heaven. Her family, her church, her friends, neighbors, and even strangers, who crossed her path, agree that life will never be the same without Jennifer and she will be deeply missed. She is preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Mabel Isaac and her sister, Brenda. She is survived by her husband Gary, their sons, Gary, II, Jovan, and Christopher, one daughter-in-law, Shahnaaz, four grandchildren, Martel, Christian, Joshua, and Jessy, her brother Sam, nieces, Mashonda, Jennifer, Erica, Ashley, and Erin, nephews, Jehru, Robert, Ryan, and Jarrett and Sisters-in-law, Delilah, Avis, and Beverly and many other friends and extended family members who loved Jennifer dearly.
