November 25, 1977 - May 8, 2021
For I consider that the suffering of this present time are not worth comparing with the Glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18 Dennis James Jakes affectionally known as D.J. was born on November 25, 1977 to Dennis James Anderson and Jeanette Jakes in Helena, Arkansas. Dennis attended Macondia M.B. Church in Oneida, Arkansas at Mt. Gilliam AME Church in Barton, Arkansas with his grandmothers Bettye Pearl and Doris Anderson an early age. Dennis "DJ" received his education in the Chicago Public School District. Dennis later moved to West Helena, Arkansas to be closer to his mom. He started attending Morning Star Baptist Church in Elaine, Arkansas under the leadership of Pastor Desi Sims. Dennis met and married his beautiful and loving wife Jamie Lee Jakes and to their union a precious baby boy was born Elijah Prince Jakes. Dennis "DJ" had a smile of gold and some big growing eyes with a feisty attitude to match it. Now we all knew DJ lived his life to the fullest. He would turn a party out and end one. Deep down inside he knew that the Lord was keeping him from day to day.
