Karima Jackson is dating Horatio Jones, a member of Organize Change Inc. They are frequently seen holding hands while walking for either official engagements or private moments.

The couple made headlines in 2016 after Jones got into a fight with Warren Vincentz, a board member at Newark Cemetery. Jackson was engaged in a movement to clean up Newark Cemetery in 2016. Her request was not financially supported, though, by the cemetery’s board of directors. As a supposed consequence, Jackson and Vincentz, whom she accused of acting inappropriately with her, got into a fight.

Both the police and Jackson’s boyfriend, Horatio, were informed of the occurrence. When Horatio arrived, he made an effort to photograph Vincent’s license plate, which sparked a physical altercation between the two. Eventually, Horatio punched Vincent in the face.

Jackson subsequently accused the cemetery’s board of financial mismanagement, legal infractions, and a lack of openness in its financial dealings in her complaint to the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
