Jania Z'sanae Marie Hester

March 13, 1993 — July 13, 2022

Creation! Our beautiful beloved Jania Z'sanae Marie Hester was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on March 13, 1993 to Keyua Latashu Marie Hester-Perry and Bernard Perry III.
Jania started her early years in Houston, Texas she was always a bubbly smiley little girl, at the age of 8 her and her family moved to Chicago were she attend to Field Elementary. She relocated to Bloomingdale, IL and attended DuJardin Elementary and Westfield middle school. Along with Lake Park and Glenbard South. Jania was an extraordinary student. Jania excepted God in her life at a early age at living Word Christian Center.
At the age of 19 after the birth of her first son Jania was diagnosed with LUPUS. Nia never let her LUPUS hold her back.She was very determined to give her boys the best life that she possibly could. She attended Mario Tricoci beauty school. As she grew as a makeup artist she’s began her own make up line and lashes called QueenZee Effect. Even though Jania’s Battle with lupus was that easy, She was a hard-working mother, loving fiancé dedicated sister and friend. To all that knew here was to love her.
Jania was an angel on earth in so many ways. She was always there to lend a helping hand even when she could barely lend a hand to herself. She was kind and always willing to help those less fortunate, or just to see someone she loves smile. One thing about Nia is she never let anyone or anything get to her. She knew who she was, and was determined to live her life to the fullest. She truly had a heart of gold.
It takes an amazingly strong woman to be Jania Hester. She stayed laid ( hair & makeup done)and worked so hard not to let her illness define her. Jania loved to sing and dance. She could make a joke out of anything. Jania loved seeing people smile and took pride in knowing that she could make it things happen. She always pushed the people in her life to do better and be the best versions of themselves. Just as she did. Nia never let her LUPUS stop her. Although she hated when people talked about her height, she knew it was what made her, her. She was genuine in everything she did rather it was for family or friends she was there!
Jania did so much on so little time. It was like she knew there could be a chance she may not make it through this. She will always be admired for her strength and determination. She was the best sister,daughter, friend and most importantly mother anyone could ask for. We are truly blessed to have spent 29 years with this beautiful LUPUS Princess Warrior!
