It is with a heavy heart that we inform the public of the passing of our Patriarch Zedekiah Jennings, Sr., known to many as "Zeddie” or “Kiah”. Zeddie departed this life on Feb. 2, 2023 in Long Island, New York, surrounded by his family. Zeddie will always be remembered and cherished as a beloved husband, father, grandfather, father-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and an excellent friend.
