On January 4, 1989, Rakesh Kumar "Rocky" Jackson was born to Denise Jackson and the late Frankie Pilote in Gibson, LA. Rakesh was the only son born to Denise. Rakesh, was known by his family and friends as Rocky. He confessed his life to Christ at a young age. He was baptized at St. James Baptist Church. Rakesh received his formal education in Terrebonne Parish School System. Rakesh always tried to help everyone. He was a very giving person. He tried to help anyone in need. He wasn't a perfect person, he was human like each of us. He had flaws and imperfections, but he was a genuine person with a kind heart. He would speak to any and everyone, in his own words he would greet you with a "whoa nah".
