Jasse’ Chevon Elena Tucker-Dickens

Sunrise: November 16, 1980 – Sunset: March 13, 2022

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Romans 8:38-39

It is with profound sadness, but abiding faith in God that the Dickens, Tucker, Stryker, Cheek, and Harris Families announce the untimely passing of their Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Cousin, and beloved family member.

This very sad, but peaceful transition took place on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 7:23pm, at the Anne Arundel Medical Center, with her loved ones at her bedside.

Jasse’ Chevon Elena Tucker-Dickens was born unto the union of Aaron Jesse Tucker Jr, and Rose Elane Stryker on Sunday, November 16, 1980, in Cheverly, Maryland.

Jasse’ was a devoted and loving wife to her husband Clint, loving and nurturing mother to her two boys, Sir (7), and Princeton (2), dedicated daughter to her mother Rose, protective sister to Aaron, and a second mom to her siblings, Carima and Christian. She was a Rock and Glue to our families, and her void is deeply felt and will never be filled.

Jasse’ earned a master’s degree in Mass Media Communication from Bowie State University in 2005. She was employed for 20 years with the National Institutes of Health in several capacities, including, currently as an Ethics and Policy Manager. She became a proud member of the ladies of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in 2001. As an entrepreneur, she was the owner and operator of Melanin Magic Shea Butter company. She was also the creator of a motivational podcast called “Jasse’ in the Jeep”.

The late Jasse’ Chevon Elena Tucker-Dickens was predeceased by her father, Aaron J. Tucker Jr on March 31, 2020, Grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Aaron J. and Grace Jasse Tucker, Rev. Hilary Victor and Julia Harris-Stryker, Leroy Cheek Sr, and Mary Knight. Uncles, Fedelis Tucker, and Ronnie Stryker. Aunt, Vivian Tucker Broderick, and many other relatives and close friends.

She leaves to mourn her irreparable loss, her Husband, Clinton Dickens, Sons, Sir and Princeton, Mother, Attorney Rose Elane Stryker, Parents-in-law, Leroy and Michelle Cheek, Siblings, Aaron J. Tucker III (Delonda), Carima Cassell, Christian Cassell, Mark Tucker, and Tiana Cheek, Nephews and Nieces, Aaron J. IV, Maverick and McKenzie Tucker, Aunts Mei Ciatta Johnson, Juliet E.

Though short, her life was meaningful and impactful for all she touched. The world was a better place because she was in it.
