Jovanni Lozano-Sayama was born in Salt Lake City, UT on February 7, 2001.
In such a short life that was unexpectedly taken away, Jovanni definitely made an impact on those he came in contact with. He was very unique, one of a kind. When he moved to Bountiful in 2013, he quickly made several friends at Mueller Park Junior High which then tripled in size when he became a Bountiful Brave. He played youth football for Woods Cross and then played for Bountiful High School. He seemed to be a very popular kid. Everywhere his family would go, someone would know him or vice versa. Many that knew him enjoyed his personality, his humor and his charisma. Neighbors loved him, church members and Scout Leaders took him to heart, teachers endured a lot with him, and coaches enjoyed having him as part of the team.
Jovanni was passionate about music, loved his friends, and spent countless hours playing online video games. As a young kid, he loved marbles, swimming, skateboarding, and collecting / counting coins. He had a love for sports, video gaming, computer coding, sports cars, collecting Hot Wheels, and watching Anime.
He was preceded in death by his Grandfather, Francisco. He is survived by his parents, Trafton and Noemi Sayama; his sister, Francis; his grandparents, Celia Lozano, Dale, and Jeannie Sayama; his cousins – Romelo, Kristian, Milo, Lalo, Elidia, Jasmine, Angel, Jayla, LJ, Thalia, Celia, Ariella, Koji, Mie, and Ava; and his best friend George.
