He was an avid NASCAR fan, especially the Dale Earnhardts. He also enjoyed camping and spending quality time with his family and circle of friends.

In addition to his mother, Mr. Jenkins is survived by his wife of almost 10 years, Laila Jack Jenkins; his daughter, Jocelyn Jade Jenkins; four brothers, Joseph Jenkins and his companion Crystal Wilson of Morgantown, Jason Johnson (Tammy) of Oblong, Ill., Gregory Johnson and his fiancée Amanda Walker of Barrackville, and Sean Johnson (Jackie) of Fairmont; his sister and brother-in-law, Kelly Sherbaugh (Joseph) of Jeannette, Pa.; and also several nieces and nephews.

His family would like to thank Road To Recovery, The Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, Amedysiss Hospice (especially Melinda and Lori).
