Obituary

Jennifer Ingrid David (Jenny, Tuna) Baptiste, known to her grandchildren as “Aunty”, was born on June 29, 1956., in Tunapuma, Trinidad & Tobago.  She was the only daughter of Leonie (Yvonne) Baptiste, loving wife to Alfred (Fred’s) David, devoted mother to only child Karriem David, loving mother-in-law to Dianne David, and doting grandmother to Xavier, Keira, khloe,  Alexander, and Ethan David.   Plain spoken and true to herself.  Jenny was an avid crafter, the first to volunteer to make, bake, cook, decorate for any event.  She was a whiz with numbers, a lover of Sudoku, or any math game, who could work out the final price of an item after multiple discounts in seconds.  During travels on random road trips, she loved visiting the local casino and playing slot machines while leaving Fred’s in the car!  Another  passion she enjoyed was reading and she couldn’t get enough of a Romance Novel (Mills & Boons).  She was the family librarian of  the literary genre book trade. Aunty had a sense of adventure with countless family road trips, excitingly driving cross-country,  often taking the long scenic way, and held the co-pilot seat firm with her large North American soft cover atlas map books.  Instead of boarding the pilgrimage bus, she would load up the station wagon with all the family little ones and “ro-ta-na-na” to the party.  Her colorful career journeyed from major financial institutes to major medical insurance claims practices, and education.  She las found her employment happiness working with children where she fed thousands in the elementary school cafeteria.  Later, she returned to her natural passion of creating arts and crafts with hundreds of after school children.  Loved by her co-workers. she always brought about a stimulating  and positive atmosphere for all.  

Above all, Jenny was a woman who feared God, a robust women of faith.  A teacher in the Spiritual Baptist religion.  She was always ready to give a kind word or assist with any problem.  You could not really gossip with Jennifer because she would remind you of what type of Christian you are and would never accommodate any negative comments;  but will tell you to think positive with her saying, “leave it in God’s hands”.

Jennifer will be remembered for her love for children.  She was a mother to all her nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly:  Brutally honest but caring and attentive.  “Kids are not spoiled; they are overly loved”, she would say.  Her belief and reliance favored her as a mail-in charitable donator to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Nationwide Center of St. Jude Devotions.  

Significantly noted, Jennifer was a survivor of the 9/11 World Trade terrorist attack.  She selflessly took the hand of an elderly co-worker and descended twenty-six  flights of dark, wet, and smoke-filled staircases to safety.  Her Father God was not ready for her to ascend on that day.  Without a beat, she firmly required no commendation for her caring and courageous action.  

Jenny left this earth all too soon, on Friday, August 27th, 2021.  She leaves to mourn her brothers; Elias (Churkut) Simmons,  Terrance (Sharky) and Dave (Selby) Baptiste,  Aaron (Boujee) Cupid; ten nieces and nephews along with “many, many, many” family members and friends.

    Jenny you will truly be missed, I missed that very smile of yours and your guidance, that you always showed for our Babygirl! You was a beautiful soul inside and out and I can’t believe that you’re really gone, but I do know, that you will keep watch over us in the stars!!!

    Jen Jen I will miss our chat on things inspirational and when I call to hear your voice with so mama but God has his plans all laid out 😉 my condolences to the family in their time of grief 🤠

  • Raymond Johnson Posted September 11, 2021 2:16 am

    It was with great sadness that we had to accept the news of your passing. You were truly one of the few constants at an institution where so many others have come and gone. It’s so hard to realize that we won’t be seeing you or hearing your voice there anymore. We will miss the occasions when we would hear you sing so sweetly. I remember you once saying that you were a very rich woman. ‘I’m rich in Christ’ you went on to say! Please watch over us from above as you are most assuredly with the Lord now. Youthful once again, and in the pink of health! Residing with Him in a paradise far more beautiful than most of us can even imagine! Waiting for the day when we are once again all reunited with those we have loved and lost. To be together again. And for Eternity (as is God’s promise)! Ray and I will miss you and, sadly, must regret that we weren’t able to give you one last Big Hug.
    Woefully and with love,
    As Always,
    Ray Wells (aka Little Ray) and Ray Johnson (aka Big Ray)

    The memories we hold for our dearly beloved niece, from childhood, and cousin, I called “”AUNTY”. Will be eternally indelibly engraved in our memory.
    my sister Yvonne and my aunty that I call “GRANNY”. We want you to know that the good LORD has your back, as we claim this promise in Matthew 5;4 with you,
    “BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN FOR THEY SHALL BE COMMFORTED” .

  • Irma Cupid Posted September 11, 2021 6:17 am

    Aunty Yvonne, Alfred, and Kareem. We have suffered a great loss of our dearly beloved JENNIFER. Just to share a few thoughts and memories of Jennifer who played many roles in my life. Jennifer has been a mother, sister and cousin to me. As you know she is irreplaceable to you and me. Jennifer had a personality that was uniquely laudable. Jennifer was always wiling to help and she was good at problem solving when difficult situations arose; She had a great love for children. Jennifer enjoyed taking her: son, nephews, nieces and cousins on trips.; She will be great missed by me and my children. We will cherish our memories of her, may she rest in peace.

  • JACKY Posted September 11, 2021 7:09 am

    My Dearest Kareem and Your dad Alfred. Our family is mourning the loss of one of our favorite ,She was an ICON in her own way. The lord has chosen to take back his breath or spirit .We will lay her back in the dust tomorrow where she will rest and wait until that day when when Jesus comes.. . .Precious in the sight of God is the death of his saint .or his people PSALMS 116:15 . I know my Redeemer lives .
    So as CHRISTIANS we mourn we weep as Jesus did for his friend LAZARUS .One day death itself shall die. Until then we must claim the blessed hope we must live the life that wins and count so we can see our loved ones that died in CHRIST. She has no power to watch over any one because the living know they shall die but the dead does not know any thing. so let us all make our calling and our election sure.. so we all can experience the blessed hope.:

  • Steve ONeil Posted September 11, 2021 1:01 pm

    Jenny you will be missed terribly by me. From the earliest years we spent together at our grandma house, I remember your kind spirit and your radiant personality. You are the first person my wife met in the family, and she will always remember how welcoming kind and loving you were to her. You always spoke your mind, and you were real. Thanks for the thoughts and memories. We love you.

  • Rose Powell Posted September 11, 2021 1:37 pm

    Be forgotten.

  • Kimberly Cross Posted September 11, 2021 3:30 pm

    Aunty Yvonne, Kareem, and Uncle Alfred; sending my love and Virtual Hugs. Praying that the Lord gives you the strength to make it through today as we say goodbye to Aunty. That’s what we called her just “Aunty” she was my cousin but grew up with my Mom as a sister. I remember going on a few trips with her as a kid even the long drive to Canadá all in that great and resilient station wagon! No one could read a map like my Aunty, she was a human GPS. If you were lost anywhere in the world you knew exactly who to call! In recent times, she would always call to check on me and my husband when she didn’t hear from us for a while. Her voicemail messages always made me laugh and I knew I had to call back soon or I’d be in big trouble! I will miss those phone calls, the conversation, miss our laughter, but I’ll smile as I recall the loving memories. Aunty Jennifer we miss you so much we love you! May you rest peacefully in Jesus until that great day when we all will meet again in Glory!

  • Deborah Bower Posted September 11, 2021 5:03 pm

    My heart breaks every day that when I go to work I will not see you but I know the heavenly Lord will keep you at peace till we can meet again in heaven and that is the greatest hope that I have together my day knowing the Lord will let me see you again for we all get to heaven love and miss you and our prayers with your family

    On behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida, we send our deepest condolences to the David Family as we recently learned of her homegoing. Ms. David faithfully served our Boys & Girls Club members through our Wolf Lake Middle School afterschool program. Ms. David will be deeply missed. We are so grateful and celebrate the life that Ms. David lived and the enormous impact that she made on our Boys & Girls Club children. No words can truly express our gratitude and appreciation for this wonderful woman as we know so many have been significantly influenced by her life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. I pray that God would comfort you with His peace and know that we will see her again as we celebrate all that she has done and the positive mark that she has left on so many who knew her well. May God Bless the David Family.

    Sincerely,

    Kelvin Curry
    Director of Middle School Programs
    Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida
