Jermadric "CoolJay" Williams was born on December 13, 1975, in Paris, Texas, to the parentage of Norma Jean Williams. He transitioned to eternity on August 8, 2019.
Jay was an athlete and graduate of Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas. A degree in Criminal Justice from Remington College and a barber license through the Texas State Board helped him thrive to become his own boss and start the world class business he so adored. After moving from salon to salon, he decided to settle down and open his very own salon & barbershop, Hair Games Barber and Beauty Salon, so his clients could feel comfortable in a fun and inviting setting and space. He then acquired a staff of like-minded individuals that helped turn the business into a huge success. After getting Hair Games off the ground, he decided he wanted to do more and went to work as a Fleet Service Clerk at American Airlines where he was for the past four years.
Jay was a beautiful spirit and a joy to be around. You could always find him with a smile on his face. He laughed and joked around with anyone he came into contact. In 2016, he and more than 100 of his closest friends and family journeyed to Las Vegas to see him unite in matrimony to his long time best friend, Precious Moore. He enjoyed being the number one DJ at parties, traveling, watching sports, and spending time with his beautiful daughters, family, and friends. He also LOVED LOVED LOVED the Dallas Cowboys. You could always count on him to cheer on his team no matter what, and he would let you have it if you had anything negative to say. He and Precious would host parties at the shop (which was considered 'Cowboy Country') for everyone to watch the game and cheer on his and America's favorite team. His silliness, willingness to give you the last dime in his pocket, and overall infectious nature will be truly missed.
Those left to cherish precious memories include his wife, Precious Williams; daughters, India Williams and Jada Williams; his mother, Norma Jean Williams; stepsons: Erik Johnson, Eric Jemison, and Deonte (Samantha) Green; grandmother, Francis Williams; grandfather, Nathaniel Williams; sisters, Lamensia Williams and Ashley (Coy) Smith; brother, Lavar (Janisha) Williams; aunts: Joyce Grimes, Vernettia Davis, and Rochelle Williams; uncles, Anthony Williams and Stacy Williams; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many dear friends.
