Mourning Jamika Jo Vauncile Roberts

July 2, 1996 - February 18, 2024

It is with profound sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of Jamika Jo Vauncile Roberts on February 18, 2024, at the tender age of 27. Born in Tulsa, OK, on July 2, 1996, Jamika was a beacon of joy and warmth to all who were fortunate enough to know her.


Jamika was the cherished daughter of Deborah Kay Goodman and the late Dr. Nathaniel Goodman, Sr. Jamika is survived by her sister, Tori Goodman VanDyke (Jermaine); and brothers, Kiwanis Roberts (Andrea) and Nathaniel Jamal Goodman. She also leaves behind her grandfather, Dr. T.J. Roberts; aunts, Tommie Jean Roberts-Madison (William) and Dorcas Roberts; nieces, Ki’yana Roberts, Jasmine VanDyke, Kalencia Roberts; and nephews, Kiwanis “KJ” Roberts, Jr. and Kameron Roberts. Jamika's journey to eternity was preceded by her father; grandmother, Deloria V. Taylor-Roberts; and uncle, Marcus A. Roberts.


In addition to her immediate family, Jamika shared a special bond with her birth parents, Joseph Timothy Roberts, and Nita Conners, adding a unique layer to her rich and diverse family history.


At an early age Jamika accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized and was baptized at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where her family remains active. Her commitment to the church extended to various ministries, including the youth choir, Sunday School, and the Junior Usher Board.


Jamika attended Edison High School, where she embraced the pursuit of knowledge and athletics. After completing her education, she dedicated herself to a career in the health industry, serving as a compassionate Home Health Aide. Her commitment to providing care and giving to others touched the lives of many, leaving a lasting mark on the community.


Jamika had a deep love for basketball, competing on AAU, basketball camps and travel teams. Despite her small stature, her passion for the game was unmatched. Her love for sneakers, earning her the title of Sneakerhead, rivaled her love for sports. In addition to these passions, Jamika was an avid fan of hip hop and rap music. However, none of these interests compared to the love she had for her family, relishing moments spent at family gatherings and special celebrations.
