Jamie “Jersey Hooligan” Roberts

December 12, 1973 - February 26, 2018     Age: 44

Jamie “Jersey Hooligan” Roberts, 44, of St. Mary’s, GA passed away Monday, February 26, 2018 at the Warner Center for Caring.

Born in Union, New Jersey he was a son of the late Robert John and Loretta Campbell Roberts. He spent much of his early life in New Jersey before moving to the area in 2010.

Jamie worked for several years at Beyond Taboo Tattoos. He was, simply, a fantastic tattoo artist. His reputation as an artist reached far and wide. Some have estimated he tattooed several thousand people in the area. He was an uncommon “left handed” artist who was known for his light hand. He was his happiest when he was inking someone.

He loved the feeling of freedom when he rode his motorcycle.

His ability as an artist extended beyond his tattoos. His sketches with pen or pencil and paper were remarkable. Just as remarkable was his generous and kind heart. He was a loyal friend to many and fiercely protective of his family.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a brother, Glenn Kennedy.

His surviving family includes his sisters, Diana Schulman and Stephanie Roberts, both of St. Mary’s, GA, Cindy Blair of Morganville, NJ, Tracy Hoffman of Freehold,NJ and Kelly Roberts of Belmar, NJ; his step-children, Mattan Ervin, Drake Walton and Catelyn Wansley; several nieces and nephews and other extended family members as well as the love of his life, Becky Roberts.

“Jersey Hooligan”s family and friends will gather at a later time to remember and celebrate his life.

Remember, as he always said, “Don’t you know my last name is Roberts?”

    I am sorry to his family who lost. I had the fortune in life to meet Jamie and we became friends. It wasn’t until after we started working together that we figured out we were both from Jersey! We quickly made a tight brotherly bond as we realized we had more in common than most. I shared more with him because he had a way of making everyone comfortable and happy! I will miss you brother and will always be here for anyone your shoulder was available for. Take care my brother we will meet again!
