Life Reflections:


Jonathan Ivory Sullivan (White) was born on July 20, 1986 to parents Perdencie White and Ivory “Stanley” Sullivan, at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida.


Anyone who knew him, knew of his passion for music. Jonathan’s love for music began early in childhood and started just with him singing around the house. Eventually he would go on to perform in a host of local productions and musicals. For many years he performed in shows such as the “Chocolate Nutcracker” and was a recurring cast member in the Busch Gardens hit show, “Katonga.” Jonathan would share his love for music with anyone and everyone he knew. His voice has serenated and inspired countless people. In addition, his musical abilities were not limited to singing and performing, but also included writing and teaching others the art of music and song.  All in all, Jonathan was well known for his amazing voice, warm heart, big smile and most of all, his love for Whitney Houston!


Jonathan answered his heavenly call on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, in Clearwater, Florida, at home, where his loving heart ceased. He leaves to cherish his memories his mother, Perdencie White; father, Ivory “Stanley” Sullivan; maternal grandmother, Rosetta Merricks; paternal grandmother, Yvonne Hedgeman; brothers, Jerry White, Jernerio White, Charez Sullivan, Keenan Sullivan, Jacarius Sullivan, Jamal Sullivan; sister, Octavia Sullivan; paternal aunts, Kim (Trevor) Lashington, Sherry Hilton, Sylvia Sullivan, Sonya Herring; paternal uncles, Tony (Lattye) Sullivan, Robert (Fran) Hedgeman, Garry Sullivan, Rodney Sullivan, Tarcus Hedgeman, Tezron Hedgeman; maternal aunts, Beatrice (Julius) Garrett, Rose (Alvin) Goodloe, Lisa Beckford; maternal uncles, George (Renee) Beckford, Curtis (Wanda) White; maternal cousins, Nathaniel James, Jr., Dorian White, Natacha White, Melissa Goodloe, Jade Goodloe, Jalen Goodloe, Briana Osgood, Tommy Osgood, Dominique White, Tramaine Beckford, George Beckford, Jr., and a host of other family members, relatives, and friends.
