Jennifer Kisumba Bradley

April 16, 1965 — November 17, 2023


Jennifer Kisumba Bradley, a gracious and beloved woman of Christian faith whose warm presence touched the lives of many, preciously passed away on November 17, 2023, in Norwalk, California, USA. She was born on April 16, 1965, in the vibrant city of Kampala, Uganda.

Jennifer led a remarkable life filled with love, compassion, and dedication to her family and friends. Her passing leaves a void that will forever be felt by those who had the privilege of knowing her.

Born to loving parents, the Late Professor David & the Late Mrs Catherine Kisumba, Jennifer brought joy into their lives from the moment she entered this world. She was raised with her siblings the Late David, Andrew and the Late Martin Kisumba. Together they formed a unique bond that lasted throughout their lives.

Throughout her life journey, Jennifer embraced every opportunity that came her way with an unwavering spirit and endless determination. She valued education greatly and dedicated herself to studying diligently. Jennifer's thirst for knowledge led her to excel academically. She eventually graduated with honours from the University of Bradford in 1989 with a Bachelor of Pharmacy Degree. Her commitment to education and desire for independence inspired those around her and left an indelible impact on future generations.

Faith, family and friends meant everything to Jennifer. As a devoted sister, cousin, auntie, great auntie and friend, she shared countless precious memories with her loved ones, some of whom stood beside her through thick and thin. She was a woman of great faith right up to the moment she graduated to glory. Her love for her Saviour Jesus Christ was evident in the way she lived, devoting herself to over fifteen years of membership at her local  church and always keen to grow in her faith and understanding of Biblical truths under the teaching of a number of Christian pastors and ministers of the gospel who impacted her greatly.

Jennifer's greatest accomplishment was undoubtedly being a devoted confidante and supporter of her immediate family who have all passed on except her only surviving brother Andrew, his wife Sarah and the Kisumba girls, her extended family including adopted mothers, aunties, cousins, nieces, great nephews, adopted family, household family, work family, dear friends, all over the world and too many to mention by name, and special bonds like the one she shared with her closest friend in life. Her unwavering love, humour, wisdom and faith knew no bounds as she nurtured them through life's highs and lows. Jennifer instilled within them values of kindness, compassion, and respect for others – lessons they will carry forward as a testament to their incredible connection.

Aside from these ties, Jennifer had a remarkable capacity to build strong connections with patients friends and acquaintances in the work place. Her warm heart, infectious spirit and festive singing all year round brightened the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know her. Jennifer's genuine care and concern for others was unwavering, and she always went above and beyond to lend a helping hand or offer a listening ear.

In addition to her immediate family, Jennifer cared deeply and practically for her late mother's sister, Alice Walusimbi, with whom she shared countless weekly phone calls especially since her grandmother, Jajja Naume, Alice's mother, passed away in March 2022 aged 106 years old. Jennifer's commitment remained unbreakable regardless of distance or time, proving the depth of her dedication to honour her loved ones.

Jennifer Kisumba Bradley will forever be remembered as a shining light in the lives of those who had the pleasure of knowing her. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine love for others touched every person she encountered. She was a beacon of strength during difficult times and a constant source of support to those who needed it most.

As we remember Jennifer, let us not mourn her passing but instead celebrate the beautiful life she led. Though she may be physically absent from our lives, her memory will forever live on in our hearts and in Christ one day we will see her again when reunited in God's glorious presence.

One thing to bear in mind that Jennifer said she learned, was that if we focus on the pain of parting from our loved ones, we can miss the divine purpose God has in transition. So as we remember and celebrate her, let’s not miss God’s plan to work all this out for our good.

So Jennifer Kisumba Bradley, as you rest in eternal peace, we don’t say goodbye, but goodnight and we'll see you in the morning!
