In a somber ceremony on Saturday (June 10), family and friends assembled at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church in Atlanta to honor the life of Jacky Oh, former member of MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out” and the beloved partner of comedian and entertainer DC Young Fly.

The celebration of life was announced via an Instagram post on Thursday (June 8). It began with a public viewing at 1 p.m. and was followed by a service at 2 p.m. Jacky Oh, whose birth name was Jacklyn Smith, tragically passed away at the tender age of 33.

Following the sudden loss of Oh, as first reported by Rap-Up, a wave of heartfelt tributes have flooded in from prominent figures, including close friends and associates, including B. Simone, Cardi B, Odell Beckham Jr., Jason Lee, and Nick Cannon.

DC Young Fly paid a heartfelt tribute to Jacky Oh during her memorial, lauding her “beautiful soul” and remembering her as a “super great mother.” His eulogy underlined his deep faith in God, crediting their unwavering belief as a guiding light during this challenging time.
