Jo'Markius Fuller

Age 18

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Never to wear grandma’s scarves again

His loved ones called him “JoJo.” He had “tons of energy, a positive attitude, and impeccable manners.” Teachers remembered him as helpful and sweet. They said he worked in school, even when it was a struggle.

He had a close relationship with his family. His grandmother would knit scarves, and he would wear them to school often. His mom supported him always. She describes him as having a “beautiful and pure heart.”

Jo'Markius Fuller, 18, was shot on East Hills Drive on June 30, 2018, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
