November 27, 1970 – March 23, 2022 (age 51)
New Windsor, NY
James P. DeGelormo Jr. “Jimmy”, a long time resident of New Windsor, NY passed away at his home on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.
Jimmy was a 1989 graduate of John Jay High School where he held the section wrestling championship and was 11th in the nation. Jimmy was a member of Black Rock Fish and Game Club, the UFC, and a member of Gold’s Gym for over 30 years. Jimmy had a larger than life personality and was a beacon for all who knew him! To know Jimmy or to be in his light was a blessing. His passions were his beautiful loving wife, Stacy, his work, and his 3 dogs. Jimmy spent all of his free time engulfed in and educating everyone on MMA, wrestling, UFC, motocross, and any other one-on-one sport. Jimmy also had a love for the gym and working out, where he attended almost daily since he was 14 and competed all through his twenties when he gained the infamous name “Flinger”. Although he was busy, his favorite things were quiet times at home with his wife and fur babies, and dinner out with his great friends and family. Jimmy’s smile was contagious, his constant will to help anyone in need was his word. The impact and sadness that he will leave behind is beyond measure. Although he is no longer here with us physically, he has touched so many people’s lives. His legacy of courage, strength and profound kindness will live through all of us. Please keep him close to your heart.
Jimmy is survived by his loving wife Stacia (Crisci) DeGelormo, his beloved fur babies Roxy, Adelion, and Pearle; his father-in-law Alfonso P. Crisci; his brothers and sisters-in law Dominick and Bonnie Crisci, Greg and Toni Crisci, and Raul and Danean (Crisci) Rodriguez; his nieces and nephews Jillian Crisci, Daniel Crisci, Georgiana Crisci, Alexandra Rodriguez, and Diego Rodriguez; his aunts and uncles Barbara and Gordon Allen, Carmella and Bruce Washburn, Kenny and Anna Washburn; his cousins Chrissy and Bill Irwin, Jill Allen, Nicole Washburn, Amy Muscat, Karen DeSimone, Tammy Klact, Kim Speviale, Kenneth Washburn, and Regina Manzi; and countless best friends.
