Affectionally known as "Co Co", Ricosia was born on January 17, 2000 to Jakytra Johnson and the late Rico Mack in Knoxville, Tennessee. Ricosia attended elementary school in Knoxville and later attended Metro Nashville Public Schools, where she graduated John Overton High School, Class of 2018. A true fashionista at heart, Ricosia influenced many through her style. She enjoyed the essence of beauty and often displayed her creativity, especially with hair. Ricosia will be greatly missed by her entire family, her friends, and all who knew and loved her. Although she experienced some struggle, Ricosia spent her last days reading her Bible in search of her Lord and Savior. Her work here is done. Therefore, we, as her family who are left to mourn her loss, are convinced that she will rest in peace.
