Jahria Dena Cox was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the fourth of six children, on August 4, 1994, to Merlon and Valencia Cox. Her family later migrated to Lexington, Kentucky where Jahria graduated high school with honors. Jahria graduated Cum Laude with a Chemical Engineering Degree from Tuskegee University in 2016 and was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated. Jahria began her engineering career at Proctor and Gamble in Cincinnati, OH and later was employed by ExxonMobil. Jahria met and later married her college sweetheart Damien Frederick.
Jahria possessed a heart of gold and cared about others tremendously. She was very thoughtful and wanted to dedicate her life to helping others. She loved reading and listening to books and also binge-watching TV and movie series. She also loved sweet smelling candles, comfortable blankets, and water bottles that held massive amounts of water. She was loved by all that she came in contact with. She left an impact on people that she didn’t even realize. Jahria was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, and sister. She was truly an angel on Earth.
Jahria departed her earthly home on Monday, September 13, 2021, at Christus Southeast Texas-St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont, TX.
