Video Tribute to Lu's Father, Gregory Hamza Jaco

This is a video tribute to Gregory Hamza Jaco. The clip from Youtube actually shows some of the memorial service that was held in his honor. From this video you can see how many lives he touched that will have a major effect on them forever. After watching this, it made me think about what would people would have to say about me when I'm gone from this earth...

Lu is shown in the video, he has a white headband (probably not the proper term) tied around his head. This video was NOT done by me, but by archanjo88 on Youtube. This is what was said by archanjo88...

This is a tribute to my first sensei, Master Hamza Gregory Jaco, April 5, 1992-February 26, 2007. I met Jaco when I was 15 years old in the Winter of 1968. We were Explorer Scouts together. Jaco has always been a major influence in my life. He was an example to live up to, a man who challenged you and himself to be better people in spite of whatever flaws we might have. He was well respected in the community. A warrior, master drummer, comic, philospher,and humanitarian. Not having seen him in years I went looking for him while I was doing research on The Search for Count Dante. I interviewed him in early August of 2006. He died last Monday, February 26, 2007. He was buried in the Islamic tradition on Tuesday, February 27. His memorial was held in Chicago at Bethel Church on Friday, March 2.




Just Beautiful.

(There is also a video of the burial, that is located in the videos of archanjo88 on Youtube, but I chose not to post that one on here. You can go see it for yourself. It shows Lu and other people helping at the burial)

Dude...

I was in tears... Especially after watching the burial...

I was just imagining how I would be feeling if my father passed... I still have both of my parents (Allahu Akbar)...

The video was beautiful... May peace and blessings be upon the entire Jaco family...
