Chester Earl Wright was the second of three sons born to Lenoria Jackson Wright and Freddie Wright, II on November 24, 1982 at the University Medical Center in Jackson, MS. Chester’s early childhood years began in Fenwick, MS located in rural Adams County with his brothers and parents, enjoying life and all it had to offer a little boy living in the country. They often visited his cousins and maternal grandma Winnie in Jefferson County, MS who affectionately called him “Chess Cat”.
Education and Career
After relocating to Jefferson County, Chester started his school years at Jefferson County Elementary School. He was humble, well-liked, quite the jokester, and respected among his peers. He had a giving spirit, and would always put people first. Chester graduated from Jefferson County High School in 2001. After graduation, he ventured out and visited other places as he continued to bond with his cousins. Around 2005, he became employed as a Nuclear Security Officer at Grand Gulf Nuclear Station in Port Gibson, MS where he remained faithfully until his health failed. Chester loved working and making money. There were few to no times Earl was absent from work, even agreeing to fill in for others which dubbed him the name “Mr. Overtime”. The reward for working hard was shown in his love for electronics, but especially his love for cars, trucks, and rims.
His Family
Although Chester had no children of his own, he had many children that he loved unconditionally. He was known to his nieces, nephews, 2nd cousins, and the children of his close friends as Uncle Earl. To his 1st cousins he was affectionately known as the Baller, Looser, or #1 Stunna because he loved to shine in his cars, trucks, and rims. Although that was his passion, his greatest love was his family. When Earl’s health failed, his family and friends along with Jefferson County High School Class of 2001 and others prayed for him consistently throughout his journey. Earl was strong-willed and at sometimes not a person of many words, but his actions were always guided by his heart. Chester was showered with the love of his family and friends before departing this world on February 12, 2022 at the University Medical Center in Jackson, MS.
Chester was preceded in death by his father Freddie Lee Wright II; maternal grandparents Winnie Elizabeth Jackson and Earnest Bertrand; paternal grandparents Freddie Lee Wright and Walter Mae Watkins-Wright; great grandfather Alfred McGuire; and uncles Leroy Wright and Stonewall Hines, Jr.
He leaves to cherish his memories; a devoted and loving mother, Lenoria Wright; two brothers, Freddie (Tiffany) Wright III and Christopher (Jasmine) Wright of Fayette, MS; three nephews, Chauncy Wright, Christopher Wright Jr, and Christian Wright of Fayette, MS; three nieces, Jazzmine Wright, Christalynn Wright, and Jacqueline Wright of Fayette, MS; three aunts, Betty Stampley of Fayette, MS, Glenda Stampley of Nashville, TN, and Nancy Jackson of Lake Wylie, SC and one uncle, Percy Johnson of Fayette, MS; two godsisters, Cashoney Carter of Fayette, MS and Shakeria Littleton of Dallas, TX; one godbrother Jerion Jackson of Hattiesburg, MS; six close friends; Jennifer Moore, Michael Lee, Roderick Wise, Clayton Banks, and LaFendrick Day of Fayette, MS and Adrian Thomas of Natchez, MS; a host of cousins and friends; and a special friend of ten years Evelyn Jones and her son TayShaun Fells.
