At the point when darling entertainer Ray Liotta passed on out of nowhere at 67 years old, he abandoned a lamenting fan base, family and spouse to-be.
The “Goodfellas” star kicked the bucket in his rest Thursday in the Dominican Republic, where he was recording a film named “Hazardous Waters.”
Liotta’s life partner, Jacy Nittolo, was with him in the Caribbean country when he passed on.
Yet, who precisely is the one who took the “Divine location” star’s heart?
Who is Jacy Nittolo?
Who is Jacy Nittolo?
She and Liotta had a nearly 20-year age gap.
Where does she live?
Nittolo currently lives in Malibu.
It appears she was raised in Southern California.
Does she have children?
Nittolo has four children from a previous relationship: son Dax, 24, son Chazz, 22, daughter Jade, 19, and son Joey, 11.
She is also close with Liotta’s only child, 23-year-old daughter Karsen, whom he shared with ex-wife Michelle Grace.
Does she have siblings?
Nittolo has at least one younger brother, whom she has called a “living miracle” on Instagram.
In 2000, her brother was involved in a near-fatal car accident that resulted in “severe brain damage.”
Nittolo wrote that he spent
“10 weeks in a coma,” underwent “2 brain surgeries,” lived at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles “for months” and spent years enduring “every kind of physical therapy you can imagine.”
What does she do for a living?
While it is unclear whether Nittolo still works, she was in a managerial position as recently as 2017.
In December of that year, she posted a photo with a handful of other adults wearing holiday sweaters and taking shots.
“And this is how you treat your employees…. when you survive the year from hell & survive! 🙏🏼🤪,”
How did she meet Liotta?
Liotta shared on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in September 2021 that his daughter set him up with Nittolo after Karsen attended a party at Chazz’s house.
Although Liotta said Nittolo wanted
“nothing to do with an actor whatsoever”
and that he felt Nittolo having a 10-year-old son was a “buzzkill,” they ended up hitting it off.

When did they get engaged?
The two got engaged around Christmas 2020 and announced the news on social media.
“Christmas wishes do come true. I asked the love of my life to marry me, and thank God she said yes!!!”
Liotta captioned a photo at the time, which featured Nittolo showing off her engagement ring.
Nittolo shared the same image on her own account, plus a fun outtake photo, and added, “💍🥂🍾.”
It is unclear whether the couple had set a date for their wedding.
