Tyson Odell Watson, affectionately known to most as, “JT Watson “ or “T-Y” was born to his loving parents Nannie Lee Green and Herbert “JT” Watson on September 5, 1971.
Tyson as an adolescent always had a deep passion for sports and music. He played a variety of sports growing up and was a member of the Nottoway High School Band. Tyson attended and graduated from Nottoway High School in 1990. Tyson joined the U.S. army upon graduation where he proudly and courageously served his country and completed his term with an Honorable Discharge.
Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Tyson knows that there were three things that was near and dear to his heart: his family, his music and football, specifically the Washington Commanders, (formerly known as “The Washington Redskins”).
Tyson absolutely adored his family. One of his greatest joys in life was to throw some things on the grill or get in the kitchen and whip up a meal and call and invite our family and friends over for an impromptu feast. One thing for certain and two things for sure, Tyson was going to make sure you were fed and full.
As far as music is concerned, he loved all genre’s of music, some of his favorite artists were: The Lox, Teddy P, Fleetwood Mac, Moneybagg Yo, Sade’ and the list goes on. That shows you his range in music. He could listen to music for hours, usually at top notch, despite anyone and everyone else who was in ear shot disapproval. That was Tyson, music was therapeutic for him.
The Washington Commanders were Tysons favorite football team. Tyson made sure that him, his wife, and his children all knew the importance of football and more importantly he made sure they all understood the importance of being avid Commanders fan. Burgundy and gold forever baby, Commanders Always!
Tyson was a man like no other. He had the gift of gab with a heart of gold which made him unique. He was always the life of the party and you could depend on him to keep everyone laughing and in good spirits. Any room he stepped in he made his presence felt. Tyson was a loving, kindhearted, warm, beautiful soul who was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Tyson was preceded in death by his father, Herbert J.T. Watson and his mother-in-law, Sandra M. Jennings. He leaves to cherish his memory: his loving and devoted wife, Adrienne; his mother, Nannie; his father-in-law, Jackie; his children whom he adored with everything in him, Daekuan, Alexus, Deaisha, Yaishawn, Devonte and Briana; his grandson, Amari; his brothers, Terrence (sister-in-law Tiffany), Jack (Crystal) and Alex (Monique); his aunts, Jackie (Godmother), Vanessa, Edith and Eva; uncle, Melvin; sister/aunts, Sheila (Herman) and Sarah; great aunts, Frances, Leola, Lillie and Mabel; great uncle, Ernest; nieces, Kadeidra, Shamece (Corey); nephews, Terrence, Christopher, Jerimiah and Zymire; great nieces and nephews, Rhema and Ezekiel; godfather, William Clarke; god sisters and god brother, Patrice, Edward, Shelly, Deidra, Kim and Dominique; godchildren, Keira, Trekuan, Demond and Jedah; brothers from another mother, Scooter, Tremaine and Jimmy Lee; devoted friend and mother of his children Michelle Goodson; his entire TBC family; and a host of cousins, aunts, uncle, family and friends that will all love and miss him dearly.
