Zamari McCoy Memorial Fund
Organized by: Friends of Joyce McCoy
Zamari McCoy, the only son of Ms. Joyce McCoy (12yr Army National Guard Veteran) died and went to heaven on March 22, 2014. They lived together in Paterson New Jersey. Zamari may have been an only child but he had many “brothers” and “sisters” in Queens NY where Zamari grew up and touched the lives of everyone who knew him. During the last year Zamari faced several medical issues which kept him from working leaving them both to live off Ms.McCoys Social Security Retirement. PLEASE consider helping this mother bury her child.
Zamari attend Evangel Christian School where he played Baseball and Monsignor McClancy Memorial High School where he played Basketball. Zamari attended Evangel Church. Long Island City NY. In 1989 Zamari survived a horrible bus accident where several of Evangels Children were injured. Zamari sustained the most severe of injuries and worked hard to make a full recovery proving his power and determination to heal. His recovery inspired many.
Zamari loved sports and was an accomplished baseball and basketball player. In 2006, Zamari was featured in a NY Daily News story about playing street basketball in Queens.
Zamari and his mother Joyce also loved their church family at Evangel. He was an active member of the Royal Rangers, Youth and many other church programs. He was known by everyone as a great friend with a big heart and a huge smile. You just felt happier being around him and his laughter!
His passing leaves many of his friends with a hurt heart, wondering why and asking how they can help… Zamari loved his mother and left her behind. No parent should ever have to bury their own. We owe it to Zamari, to help his mother with financial support to help her in this hard time. Her health is also failing and the least we can do is send her some financial support to help her during heartbreaking time. Zamari would have wanted this from us.
If you valued your time with Zamari, if you knew him, if you knew about him and if you considered him a friend – I challenge you help our Ms. McCoy.
Ms. McCoy served her country as a Soldier in the Army National Guard for 12 years. As a single mother, she worked hard to raise Zamari right. I think we can all agree she did an outstanding job. If you’re a parent please help her out. Her first order of business 3 days after her son died was to go to her local welfare office to see what type of help she could get to bury Zamari. She needs our help.
