Mrs. Jennifer Earnestine Nash, also known as “Pratty”, was born in Comfort Hall, Jamaica on January 10, 1949 to the late John Miller and Ms. Viris Allen. Jennifer received her secondary school diploma in Cambridge, England and went on to get her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Fordham University in New York City. Shortly after graduating, Jennifer returned to Jamaica to work at Graphic Arts Limited before using her creativity and entrepreneurship skills to open a clothing store. A few years later, she moved back to New York to start her career in finance. In April 1981, she gave birth to her daughter - Janaia. Jennifer married Robert Nash Jr. in April 1987, in Orlando, Florida and together, with Janaia, they traveled to North Carolina to begin their lives. As a family, they joined First Missionary Baptist Church where she served as the President of the Usher Board and as a youth Sunday School Teacher. While in North Carolina, she worked for Onslow Women’s Health Center and opened another clothing business, Rojenaia. In 2006, Jennifer moved to Norfolk with her husband and became the long-time caretaker for her sisters-in-law before she was called home. Jennifer touched countless lives! She always gave of herself first and asked for nothing in return. Her fiery spirit and extraordinary drive motivated those around her to reach their full potential. She was a second mom to so many and her love was boundless. Her infectious laugh and vibrant smile warmed any room. Her spirit and legacy will live forever. Jennifer leaves to cherish her memory her husband, Robert Nash Jr. and daughter, Janaia Nash; her mother, Viris Allen; her Grandchildren, Benai DeShields, Benjamin DeShields III, and Kinglsey Reid; three sisters, one brother and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Tawana Burtt To Robert and family, My sincerest condolences are extended to you and your family. When I think of Jennifer these are my thoughts...She handled a thousand different things on a thousand different days in a thousand different ways. There was nothing that would or could keep her down. She did a lot for others and taught a lot to others. When she spoke of her daughter Janaia, it was a known fact that she loved her dearly and that she would move any mountain that got in her way to ensure her success. Each morsel of her success she shared with others because she was one proud mother. Jennifer Earnestine Miller Nash as she would say so loudly and so proudly....May your Jamaican spirit fly high..
