Jacky Oh’s Father: The Unsung Hero of Her Life

The name of Jacky Oh’s mother is still unknown, but the late influencer did talk about her father’s side of the family.

In an interview with DJ Smallz Eyes, Jacky said that her father was her “best friend.”

“The fact that I grew up with him as a single father and didn’t have my mother around,” Jacky explained before adding that he was “being mom and dad, being both of those roles the best way he knew how to.” She also touched on “When he had girlfriends, he never let any of them act like my mom” before revealing how he always was “stepping up to the plate, being a great single father.”

Jacky Oh was brought up by her father’s family. She talked about how her father and his family are all black, while her mother’s family is all white. Jacky said this after a lot of people made assumptions about her race. She told Smallz Eyes that some commenters think Jacky is white.
