Delsea Faye Tucker was born on April 6, 1952 in Monroe, Louisiana. Raised by her loving mother Marguerita Tucker. The family moved to California when she was 5 years old.

She received her high school diploma from Edison High School; her Associate Degree from Delta College in General Education and Administration of Criminal Justice; then her Bachelor Degree in Public Relations Communication with a minor in Journalism. Delsea was an advocate in the community and took that gift seriously. It has been said “Delsea has never met a stranger.” She was instrumental in the election of the first Black King and Queen; first Black newspaper; Black Cheerleaders and organizing the first Sit-in Protests. After moving to Stockton, her Edison High School track coach noticed her Olympic running abilities. She set records in the 50 and 100 yard dash; as well as the 440 relay. She currently holds records that have not been broken in pushups and sit-ups. Delsea’s personal life was headed by her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and centered in lifelong learning. Trying to find balance and spiritual guidance. She attended Progressive Missionary Baptist Church under Pastor Maurice Harris, Sr. Pastor Glenn R Shields took her to the next level in her spiritual growth laboring favorably in the Narrow Way Witness Ministry and as a Prayer Room Counselor.

They knew when she came in the door they would be heard and treated fairly. She counseled many inmates and staff as a “life coach”. Delsea was thoughtful and supportive to all youth; giving advice on how to improve themselves.
