Family of Kenyan man who collapsed and died in Oklahoma needs help
Jackson Ndagu (39 yrs) died on March 13th 2013, after he collapsed in a grocery store in Oklahoma City. He was
shopping with his two children , 5 yr old daughter and 1 year old son. Paramedics were called and responded, took
him to the heart hospital where he was declared dead after his heart failed.
Jackson’s wife, Elizabeth Otido, was not with them when the tragedy happened. But their 5 year old daughter knew
her mother’s phone number which she gave to ALDI’s store manager who immediately called Elizabeth to go pick
up the children from the store. It was an untimely death and the young mother and now a widow (28yrs) is expected
to continue with her life without her husband.
Jackson is originally from Kenya, Africa. The late Jackson and his wife came to Oklahoma to further their studies.
Elizabeth is a student at Oklahoma City Community College, scheduled to graduate in May.
Meanwhile, there is an urgent huge financial burden on Elizabeth as Jackson’s body has to be shipped to Kenya for
the funeral so that the rest of the family members can be able to participate. Some of the anticipated costs involve
