A conservative immigrant who moved to the United States to provide her 2 boys more opportunities, but who fights against the notions of urban male masculinity that her sons are subjected to in this community. She fights it with stern love that's strong and protective. Best not to cross this woman.
Jilisia is the mother of 4 children by 3 different fathers (none of whom help her), she lost her eldest son several months ago, who was stabbed at a night club. She's struggling to keep her wits about her, but she has a really strong spirit and leans heavily on her now-eldest child (Aryana) to help her parent/manage the house. And when Aryana mouths off disrespectfully, Jilisia's rage at the difficulties of her life spills into her home.
