Jamaul Tyler Atcitty, 26, died on April 6, 2022. He was born on July 26, 1995, to Jamie Dan-Hernandez and Paul Irvin Atcitty, Jr.
Jamaul enjoyed listening to many genres of music, making music, writing lyrics, and even taught himself to play the guitar. He liked going out on adventures with friends, having game nights, visiting the bar scene, going to Lagoon, and just having a good time as a group. He also enjoyed getting together with his family for barbecues, holidays, special occasions, or simply to hang out, with music, drinks, and laughter. He had an amazing personality, a big heart, a great sense of humor, a contagious laugh, and danced when the music “bumped”. He didn’t care who was watching, lived in the moment, and had a way of helping others feel comfortable & cared for. He truly had a big heart for others, especially for those closest to him. He also enjoyed going to concerts and watching Marvel movies.
