What Happened To Robinson Family?

Thomas’s single mother raised him alongside his elder brother, Jamal Robinson, and half-sister, Jayla Paris.

When Thomas was a college student, he experienced the loss of three significant people in his life within a month.

His 7-year-old sister dialed him at midnight while Thomas was practicing for his upcoming match.

Lisa and Jayla came from Washington to New York to watch his game against Memphis.

When he called her back, Jayla was crying and informed Thomas that their mother, Lisa Robinson, was gone.

Lisa Robinson passed away at the age of 43 due to an apparent heart attack.

Moreover, when Thomas was nine years old, his father left the family. His mother began living with Thomas’s stepfather (Jayla’s father). But his stepfather was incarcerated.

Thomas took custody of his younger sister and raised her. Furthermore, Angel Morris, the mother of NBA twins Marcus and Markieff Morris, assisted him in caring for them.

Before the game in 2011 against Texas, Kansas players, coaches, and fans observed a moment of silence in honor of Robinson.

Everyone expressed appreciation for him after he played the match despite the significant loss.
