Terrance Jermaine Burgess, the youngest of four, was born to Timothy Burgess Sr. and Mary Alice Burgess on October 21, 1976, and he departed this life on May 8, 2019. He was born and raised in the city of Newark. Terrance was educated early in the Newark School System and later went on to attend Elizabeth High School where he graduated in 1995. While attending Elizabeth High School, Terrance became a prominent basketball player. He went on to play for many teams such as AAU team Newark Rams. He received an athletic scholarship to attend Collin Community College in Plano, Texas.

Terrance, after college, returned back to Newark, New Jersey and worked at Terminix exterminating company and the University of Medicine and Dentistry for many years until he was forced to retire due to illness.

Terrance met the love of his life, Josette Chantel Burgess, in 2002 and they were joined together in marriage in 2005. Terrance formed many lasting relationships throughout his life but he had a very special and loving bond with his high school friends, Dee-Dee Muse, Donald Stewart and Rashon (Mouse) Mickens.
