JORY ALBERT AKAMI ROBERTSON
Jory was born on June 25, 1987 in Pasadena, California to Clyde “Shawn” Reson Robertson and Gina Lance Prudholm and was raised in the Inland Empire region of southern California; spending much of his childhood in Moreno Valley, California.
Jory is survived by his wife, Leah Grimmett, their 12-year-old daughter, Jorie Robertson, his mother, Gina Robertson, his three siblings, Isaiah Chavez, Eddie Robertson, and Onya Robertson, his four nephews, Immanuel Robertson-Stewart, Isaiah Chavez, Jr., Mycah Robertson-Stewart, and Noah Robertson, lots of uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.
Jory worked for The Oregon Health and Sciences University with the Environmental Services Department. Jory graduated from Moreno Valley High School, where he played Varsity basketball and football and loved to skateboard. He went to school for carpentry and worked as a Carpenter for years. He had various work experiences and he was so excited about his recent return to school in January 2022 to become a Polysomnographic Technician, continuing his education at Concord Community College.
When he wasn’t spending time with his family, Jory loved to play basketball, rap and write music, cut hair, read and was constantly looking for ways to evolve as a person. He loved to have a good time, he was always cracking jokes, and was always the life of any party.
Jory was such an amazing person inside and out. He was extremely intelligent and the things he put his mind to he excelled at. Basketball was his game; Lakers all day! Writing was his outlet and rapping was his way of expression. Jory was the life of the party; his presence brought laughter and joy. He was hard on the outside but so sweet, kind, loving, empathetic, and perceptive on the inside. Jory cared deeply about his loved ones, and would give anything to make sure his friends and family were okay. He was deeply loved by his wife, daughter, mother, siblings, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
We will all miss his presence. His passion. His smile. His impersonations. His prank calls. Him being the flyest one in the room. His voice. His silliness. His care. His love.
