CAESAR JR., Clarence Joseph (Joe/Joey) was born on August 5, 1952 in Dayton, Ohio to the late Clarence Joseph Caesar, Sr. (C.J.) and Annie Belle Holder Caesar. On Monday, December 16, 2019, at 5:45 p.m., Joe lost a valiant and brave battle against cancer. Joe received his early education from Highview Elementary, a Dayton Public K-8 school. It was also during Joe’s last year at Highview that he was baptized and confirmed at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church. He went on to graduate from Chaminade High School in 1970, and earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Fordham University in New York City and Xavier University in Cincinnati respectively. Joe taught in the Cincinnati Public School system (School for Creative and Performing Arts) from where he retired after 25 years if service. Joe was known for his generous, kind and loyal heart throughout his life. With the hope of helping to find a cure for cancer, Joe’s final act of kindness and generosity was to make an organ donation to further Cancer Research. He leaves to mourn his devoted Mother, Mrs. Annie B. Caesar, devoted sister and brother-in-law, Valerie A. Caesar Jackson (Frank) of Dayton, Ohio; devoted niece and nephew, Chelsea A. Jackson Roberts (Shane) of Atlanta GA; very special dedicated friends Zach Cox and Barbara Jenkins of Cincinnati, Ohio, Lorre, Joe’s sweet and loyal Boston Terrier and a host of loving family and friends. Funeral services will be held 11:00 a.m., FRIDAY, December 27, 2019 at THOMAS FUNERAL HOME, 4520 Salem Ave., with Father Benjamin Speare-Hardy II, officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to service. Interment: West Memory Gardens. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Cancer Research Center in Joe’s name: FUNDRAISE.CANCERRESEARCH.ORG In Memorium: Help Fight Cancer in Loving Memory of Joe. On-line condolences may also be sent to the family at

Mrs. Caesar, Valerie and Frank, I just learned of Joey's passing today. I am so very sorry for your loss and heartbroken for all of you. I would not have missed Joey's service for anything, if I had known. Please accept my deepest condolences. I have nothing but very fond memories of Joey, of all of you and of good old Cone Court. Do you still listen to Nancy Wilson, Laura Nyro and Credence Clearwater Revival Mrs. Caesar? I remember making homemade pizza in your kitchen, listening to music, singing songs and that barking little dog you had. Killer or Spike or something like that. I hope that all your great memories of Joey comfort you in this time of loss. You are all in my heart and in my thoughts. love, Mark Tuss.

Joey, as we knew him in high school, was a smart, friendly and likable guy. Very active in extracurricular activities too. Condolences to his family. May he Rest In Peace. John Sweeterman
