Mario "Chichi" Cruz

March 4, 1985 ~ October 24, 2021 (age 36)


Mario “Chichi” Cruz, 36, of Jersey City, NJ entered into eternal rest on Sunday, October 24, 2021.  Chichi above all loved to spend his time with his family. Chichi was the king of R & B music, and he was a die-hard Eagles and Mets fan.  He was a gamer who enjoyed bowling and basketball.  He also enjoyed grilling BBQ for his loved one.  His smile and laugh was infectious to everyone who met him.  People would gravitate towards him because of his lovable personality.


Chichi is the loving son of Yvonne and Mario Sr.; devoted father to Myles, Myah, Mason, and soon to be Mariana; beloved husband to be to Analiz; cherished sibling to the “Mario Brothers;” and is survived by many loving other friends and family.
