JaCobe Trevon Davis-Cherry

Sunrise: October 30, 1997

Sunset: July 16, 2022

JaCobe Trevon Davis-Cherry was born on October 30, 1997 in Portsmouth, Virginia. It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Cobe. JaCobe was a specialist stationed at Fort Stewart Army Base in Georgia. He was a 2016 graduate of I.C. Norcom High School in Portsmouth, Virginia.  He was studying to obtain his CDL and was also pursuing an associate degree in Biology from Tidewater Community College with plans to graduate in December 2022. JaCobe was constantly reinventing himself while continuing to search for new opportunities. He was vivacious and outgoing! We will always remember his infectious smile and gift of gab! We are so proud of the many accomplishments JaCobe achieved in his short time on Earth.

JaCobe was a talented musician. He had an intense passion for composing, singing, dancing, and performing. He enjoyed cooking and trying new recipes and often cooked full course meals. JaCobe frequently referred to himself as a grill master. He undoubtedly loved Mama’s oatmeal!

JaCobe will be missed everyday by his wife, DeJanelle Davis-Cherry and daughter, Raegan Davis-Cherry; his parents, Curtis Davis (Pamela) and Jerronda Cherry; brother, Kawon Davis and sisters, Akeiya Davis and Ny’Azia Faircloth; grandparents, Patricia Fetterly, and James and Mildred Davis; uncles; Rico Cherry, James Davis Jr. (Marcie), Roderick Davis (Teri), Derrick Davis (Holly); inlaws, Kresha Garland and Pierre Jordan; his bonus brothers, Michael Clarke, Ernest Grant Jr, and Hadji Macklin; as well as many extended family and friends. JaCobe was preceded in death by his grandfather, Carlton H. Cherry and bonus grandfather, Martin C. Fetterly.

For everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under Heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die…a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance… 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2;4.
