Jerome Henry Cosey, lovingly known as "Weebie", was born on February 19, 1978, and entered eternal rest on January 9, 2020, at the age of 41. Weebie was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. He leaves to cherish his memories his only son Ja'Ron Cosey, and Ja'Ron's mother Catherine Joseph; Mother Janice C. Matthews and Step-father Michael Matthews; Grandmother Georgia Carey; Brothers, Milton Adams, Jr., Henry Jr., Wayne, and Delward Reddick; Sister Antoinette Reddick; Aunt Lois Cosey; Uncles, James Cosey, Sr. and Donald Carey (Iris); Great Aunts, Marcel Nelson, Elaine Victor (Terry), Geraldine Dixon (Frank), Doris Cambre (James) and Lisa Cosey; Step-children, Courtney Joseph, Kendrick, and Kendrell Penn; Cousins, Jeremiah Cennett, Paulicia Nelloms, James III, Julius, Delvin, Dominique, Isaiah, and Ryeisha Cosey; and his devoted companion Leslie Diaz. He was preceded in death by his father Henry Reddick; grandfather Calvin Carey; Aunt Jacqueline Barnes; and Cousin Tokyo Palmer. Weebie is also cherished by a host of brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Weebie attended McDonogh #31 Elementary, Peters Middle and John F. Kennedy High where he was one of the best tenor drum players to come through the legendary band! At that time, Weebie was also known for being a "Street Fighter" and one of the most amazing dancers in the city, with moves that seemed to defy gravity and always got the party started! Weebie started his career in the music industry in 1997 as a back-up dancer and went on to launch his career as Bounce rapper, "5th Ward Weebie" in 1999. 5th Ward Weebie was one of the pioneers of NOLA bounce music and is known as the King of Bounce! Weebie distinguished himself with his trademark "ah-ha" ad-libs and dark shades. Weebie explained his musical philosophy: "Don't be serious and overthink, just have fun," he said. "Let it be the funny truth!" Family, friends, and supporters are invited to attend a Celebration of Life Service on Sunday, January 19, 2020, at noon at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre, 1419 Basin Street, New Orleans, LA 70116. Visitation begins at 9:00 a.m. Private interment to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to the 5th Ward Weebie Memorial fund at Capital One Bank.
