Alexander Eley Green


Sunrise: December 12, 1999

Sunset: December 29, 2020

Our Beloved Alexander Eley Green was born on December 12, 1999 in Portsmouth Virginia to a devoted mother Jatika Johnson and loving father, Aaron Green. Alex grew up in a loving home with his mother where every curiosity and talent was nurtured. An artist herself, Jatika nurtured his love of music and artistic expression. A 2019 graduate of Kecoughtan High School, Alex’s bond with his mother was incomparable. When you saw Jatika, you saw him. One memorable moment for Alex was when he got to see Belize with his mother on a vacation to remember.

Alex loved family and that included his sister Cassidy and brother Hasan. He also looked forward to spending time with his mother’s large extended family. Though he was her baby, Jatika’s eight aunts and uncles and thirty plus cousins all treated Alex like their child. He looked forward to the cookouts, family trips, and time in the country when the family was all together.

Alex’s mother describes him as the best person to talk to. He was full of love and never showed judgement or bias towards anyone. He made friends easily and always gave those he called friends or family the truth.

Through all he accomplished in his life, Alex’s greatest triumph was his son Keyhohri. Though his time on earth with his son was cut short, Keyhohri will know without a doubt that his father adored him and will always be his very special guardian angel.

Alex is survived by his son (Keyhohri Green) mother (Jatika Johnson), father (Aaron Green), sister (Cassidy), brother (Hasan), and uncles (Michal Johnson and Mark Johnson). He also leaves behind his maternal grandmother (Joan Paulette Johnson Jackson) Maternal Grandfather (Eley Johnson) and maternal step-grandfather (Sydney Lee Jackson). He also leaves his paternal grandmother(Regina Green) and grandfather (Larry Green). In addition, he is survived by a host of great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, and friends.

Though Alex spent only a short time on earth he laughed, he lived, and he was fiercely loved by his family and friends. Now he is in the loving arms of the one who loves him most, Jesus Christ.

    Bestest,
    I cannot believe your baby and heart and soul has been taken away. I was just thinking to myself I just spoke with Alex the day after Christmas. I know one thing you can and will always remember his smile, the good times we had and his love and affection for his mom. I am going to miss my buddy the fun we had all of us eating out, going to the black museum, hollow scream, horseback riding, the cruise Alex truly enjoyed life and I know he is in heaven watching over you and his son making beats for the Lord!
    My prayers and love go out to you and your family.
    I will miss and love Alex may he RIP. Love you my sista!

    Im still in shock that he was taken so soon. He will always be my twin. It’s hard knowing I won’t be able to call him and rant about whatever is going on in my life. But I find comfort in knowing that God has a plan and this is part of his plan. I love you very much Jatika, you and Alex hold a special place in my heart.

    Jatika and Family,

    My condolences to you all. You’re in my thoughts and continuous prayers. I personally will always remember the trip to the African American museum in D.C. Alex had us laughing the entire time. I was in awe of his love and passion for music and knew that he would definitely excel in it. I also admired the mother and son bond between the two of you. Although I only saw Alex a couple times he definitely left a lasting impression on me. May God continue to keep you all through this difficult time.
