Joseph Abraham Hand, 25, of Jacksonville, FL, passed away suddenly on May 12, 2022.
Joseph was born July 16, 1996, to Rebecca and Robert Hand Jr. He attended Jefferson Davis Middle School and Temple Christian Academy. He worked as a Landscape Specialist with Landscape Consultants Inc.
Joseph’s greatest accomplishment was becoming a father and he loved his daughter, Alaina, more than anything.
Joseph had a heart of gold and was a fierce protector of his mom, sister, and the people he loved. A big kid at heart, “Uncle Jo-Jo” loved and was adored by his nephews. Joseph loved his Jordans, and his gear was red, black or none at all. His enormous sense of humor was infectious. He was quite the comedian and he never passed up an opportunity to make people laugh. With an unapologetic swag, Joseph lived his life to the fullest. He was blessed with God given musical talents and played both the drums and guitar. He was a thrill-seeker and absolutely loved an adrenaline rush. He left this earth full throttle, wide open, riding hard as he loved. You could often find him (if you could catch him) riding motorcycles or attending car meets. “Ace Jojo” loved a good turn up and could always be counted on to attend frequent safety meetings, with or without company.
Joseph was preceded in death by his father, Robert Hand Jr. and his paternal grandparents Robert and Annie Hand Sr.
He leaves to cherish his memory: his daughter, Alaina Janae Hand; his mother, Rebecca Cardona; his sister, Whitney Hand; his maternal grandparents, Charles, and Diane Carter; his nephews Colby, Silas, Walker, and Declan; his aunt, Kimberly Harrison; his uncles, Derrick Carter and Michael Hand; a host of cousins and an extended family of brothers and sisters from another mister that were his closest friends.
