Jenavisa Dean Hardy, 38, of Camden, New Jersey, transitioned after a lengthy battle with cancer on Monday, November 2, 2020. Despite her illness, she was always a positive person who brought joy to others.
She was born March 1, 1982, in Willingboro, NJ to George VanNockay and Sylvia Vason (Bacon).
Jenavisa attended school in Camden County and graduated from Pennsauken High School. While battling cancer for three years, Jenavisa pursued and successfully completed her Undergraduate and Master Degrees in Family Therapy at Wilmington College. She used her degrees and worked to help others in Louisiana and throughout the Delaware Valley area. She also preached and touched people nationally and internationally with her healing words of inspiration via social media with #AmenwithJen. Jenavisa was a humanitarian and would give you the shirt off her back if needed.
She was a loving, compassionate person who loved to be silly, spend time with friends and hang out with family during game nights. You could also count on Jenavisa for a delicious pan of macaroni and cheese and southern fried chicken at a family potluck. She had the most beautiful smile that could light up your soul. When you think of her, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that she never stopped living to the fullest, no matter the circumstance. She lived this life without regrets and on this day she would only want us to celebrate the work that she has done and will continue to do in the Kingdom of God.
She loved her husband, Emmanuel Hardy and adored her three (3) children; Tamir Robertson Jr., Omar Williams, Jr. and Abbygail Hardy. They were her world. If you were lucky enough to be present when she gazed into her children’s faces, the pure joy radiating from her would blind you. Jenavisa wanted nothing more for them than to have a wonderful life.
Jenavisa leaves behind her husband, Emmanuel D Hardy; her parents, George H. VanNockay and Sylvia Vason (Orlando); her grandfather, Raymond Edmonds; her brothers, Eric VanNockay (Tammy), Jacobi J. Jones (Ashley), George VanNockay IV (Ruth); her sisters; Robin Sykes (Drummond) and Lisa VanNockay, her favorite Uncle Ricardo Bacon (Traline), a host of nieces, nephews and other friends, relatives and extended family.
