On the evening of December 30, 2018, we lost our teammate and brother Tyamonee Johnson to senseless gun violence. From the beginning, we had a very tight-knit friend group of 7 guys, on and off the field. Tyamonee, known by many of us as “T”, has been my teammate on the Wagner College football team since 2014. This past fall we played our final season together as graduate students, each pursuing our MBA.
Taken at 22, this loss has left us all shaken, and we want to pull our community together to support our lost brother and help his family during this tough time.
Tyamonee’s life will live on through his young daughter, Lauryn Cynaii Johnson, who was T’s pride and joy since her birth this past February. Her big smile and personality are just like her dad, and we want to support Tyamonee’s legacy through her. With your help, we are looking to support their family with donations towards Lauryn’s education fund.
On behalf of all of those Tyamonee has impacted and to support his young daughter, we ask that you please consider donating in his honor.
Tyamonee Johnson was taken too early but the impact he left on so many will forever be his legacy. It it our mission to keep that legacy alive.
Donations made will help ease any financial burden placed on the family and used towards an education fund for Lauryn, managed by both of Tyamonee's parents, Adrienne Johnson and Thierno Johnson.
Thank you for your support and generosity, and please continue to pray for T’s family during this most difficult time.
Your donation of any amount will help us build upon the legacy that Tyamonee started. In addition to your donation, we also ask that you please share his GoFundMe page.
