Jojo Urmaza Mamuric, age 56 passed away on Saturday March 20, 2021 at the JFK Medical Center in Edison NJ. Born and raised in the Philippines, JoJo has migrated to the U.S. and settled in New Jersey for over 20 years.
He was a hair stylist by profession and had worked for the Avalon Salon in Milburn where he loved most, enjoying the company of his co-workers.
