Jermaine was born on February 22, 2000 in Edison, NJ. He was a 2018 graduate of Phillipsburg High School. After playing soccer, baseball and football, he discovered his true love was basketball. Known on the court for his ball handling skills, quickness and leadership, he was on the varsity basketball team his entire high school career playing the position of point guard. He went on to play on the team at Rosemont College, PA.
Jermaine had a smile that could light up a room, infectious laugh and magnetic charm. He had an ongoing love affair with cars and dreamt that one day he would drive his grandfather's '68 Chevelle drag car at the track. He was the fashion icon of his peers. Jermaine loved to watch sports, play video games, hang out with his friends, listen to music and work out. Known as a respectful, friendly, kind young man he was loved by many.
He is survived by his mother Wendy Emanuel, his father Jermaine R. Knight Sr., (wife Sana), his sister Mia Valmont, his brother Jamaad Knight, grandparents Migdalia Rivera, James Carter, Anna and Charles Knight, great grandmother Luisa Rivera, godmother Tara Epps, adored cousin Tatiana Epps and a long list of uncles, aunts, cousins and friends whom he loved.

I met Jermaine at his grand father, Mr Charles Knight retirement dinner. He took our pictures was quiet but sat smiling while listening to Mr Knight accolades. Even though that was the only time l met him, l felt l knew him as Mr Charles Knight spoke about him often at the Lyons VA Woodshop. My deepest condolences to his parents, siblings, grandparents and host of family and friends.

Although I did not know Jermaine, I am very saddened by the passing of this young man as he is the grandson of Charles and wife Anna. I was a co-worker of Charlie at the VA at Lyons for over 30 years. He sounds like a wonderful young man. It is always particularly sad to lose the most vibrant and youngest among us. May God grant some peace to you Charlie and Anna and to all the family and friends.
