My name is Kathy Lee, mother of John Lee, who is a jailed Christian in Kosobo and suffering a lot.
Is the above confusing?
The jailed one coud be Kathy or John?
How do I write it better?

Sorry, mara-ce, but that doesn't work at all.
It's possible to read that as Kathy having more than one child, one of whom is John and the other who is jailed. It's even possible to read that and think that John is the one who has a son who is jailed.
My name is Kathy Lee and my son John Lee is a Christian who is suffering greatly in jail in Kosobo.
(Though what being a Christian has to do with it, I'm not sure, and although I had also assumed you meant Kosovo, maybe you did mean Kosobo.)

Oh - I thought it was an odd but real request.
My name is Kathy Lee, and my son is John Lee, a Christian suffering greatly in jail in Kosobo.
My name is Kathy Lee, and John Lee, a Christian suffering greatly in jail in Kosobo, is my son.
(Although as exercises go, it's an odd one! Suffering Christians in jail. Couldn't they do things like "who just opened an ice cream store" or "who just won the lottery"?)
