He attended West High School and afterwards served in the US Army about 5 years and then went to the National Guard- where he later retired as a SR. MSgt. He married Del Westbrook in 1970 and later divorced in 1980. Ike was a very caring and thoughtful person. He will surely be missed.

Also he leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. Last but not least a special Aunt Leola Jackson (99 years old) from Houston, Texas.

Ike is preceded in death by his parents Wash and Elnora Jennings, sisters; Darlene, Maple Lee, and Alice Elaine Jennings. Along with his brothers; Tommy, Melvin, and Ray Jennings.
