Danial Elias Jaddou Obituary

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and anyone who lives and believes in me will never die.” John 11:25-27

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved father, loving Husband, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Deacon, and Teacher, Danial Elias Jaddou.
Danial Elias Jaddou was the son of the late Deacon Elias Jaddou, and Mosha Kas Shamoun. He is survived by wife Almas Jarbo and 10 children: Nabil (Christine), Mary (Salman), Manhal (Suzanne), Amal (Louay), Mashal (Walaa), Namir (Dr. Rita), Dr. Nahil (Sandi), Wafaa (Imad), Yas (Samantha), and Athir. He was a loving Grandfather to 25 Grandchildren and Great-Grandfather to 4 Great-Grandchildren.

Danial was a beloved Brother to 2 Brothers & 3 Sisters. The late Sliwa Jaddou, the late Ablahid Jaddou, the late Hannea Atisha, Warina Allos and the late Wadi Yousif

Danial Elias Jaddou was born in Telkeppe, Iraq on August 18, 1927 to Elias and Mousha Jaddou.
Danial was born into a holy family. His father, Elias Jaddou, was a prominent deacon and his mother Mousha also came from a religious family. Danial was raised with all the founding principles of our Catholic faith. Those principles and values have remained alive in the actions and teachings of his family for nearly a century.
In October 1942 at the age of 15, Danial was accepted into the Institute of Education for teachers in Baghdad called Dar Al-Mualameen in Rustemea, which included room and board. He was proficient in the subject teaching of Math and English. For many years, he tutored Algebra to his classmates on Thursdays and Fridays. He graduated from Dar Al-Mualameen in Rustemea in 1947 to become a full-fledged teacher.

He was engaged for two months and was married on February 14, 1954 in St. Peter and Paul Church in Telkeppe. For the last 66 years, Danial and Almas celebrated their anniversary on St. Valentine’s day.

Danial Jaddou has been a devout Catholic since the beginning. He was appointed by the beloved Yousif Omi and Yousif Attisha to form and be the director of the Holy Rosary Group, which consisted of 600 members. In 1951 he became a member of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Group and was chosen to be a treasurer. Until today, he was a member. His teacher, Sister Immanuel, taught him the importance of daily prayer, especially before meals. In kindergarten his best friend was the beloved Patriarch Mar Immanuel Dally. Danial encouraged all his students to go to church and pray often. Even until his last days, he prayed multiple times a day and attended Sunday mass.

Danial very much enjoyed the outdoors and appreciated the nature around him. He enjoyed sports and ventured outside, believing it to be good for his mind, body, and soul. He was also a free thinker and had an open mind toward other perspectives. During his early adulthood, he read many different books about politics, religion, and natural science.

He had an open heart and broad social network. He socialized with the clergy, academic community, and with many different folks who were not in the same social class or held values and philosophies that differed from his own. That broad and open social network enabled him to expand his perspective and ideological thinking.

Danial was a great role model, mentor, and spiritual leader in the Chaldean community. He gave endless time to his closest companions, and was open to any sort of conversation, regardless of the subject matter.
Danial’s morals and values of faith, family, respect, determination, strength, and attentiveness—what he embodied throughout his entire life—were instilled within his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Most people will remember Danial as a natural storyteller whose wisdom and charisma were unparalleled. Those stories touched the lives of countless people, and will carry on in the hearts of his family and friends forever.
