Yonkers EMS

Born in the tropical island of Jamaica, Jamiel is a 6’6″ tall gentle giant. When he was 17 years old, Jamiel moved to the United States on his own where he worked and attended school. Known unofficially as the “Mayor of Yonkers,” Jamiel became interested in EMS after several medical professionals, including his partner’s mother, encouraged him to explore the field. Looking for a career to fulfill his love of an ever changing and unpredictable environment, Jamiel decided to take the leap, and he hasn’t looked back. In 2014, Jamiel became an EMT and fell in love with the profession. He is now completing his paramedic program at Westchester Community College. Jamiel’s love, compassion and natural personable demeanor has made it easy to do what he loves on a daily basis, and he is excited for his future to come as a paramedic. Outside of work, Jamiel enjoys singing, nature walks, bike riding and working out at the gym.
