He has also appeared in Unlawful Entry, Cop Land, Hannibal, Killing Them Softly, Marriage Story, and The Place Beyond the Pines. Another World, Shades of Blue, Black Bird, and Our Family Honor are among his most notable TV series appearances. Ray Liotta’s fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, and his daughter, Karsen Liotta, survive him.

All you need to know about Ray Liotta’s fiancée Jacy Nittolo.

Jacy Nittolo was born on September 25, 1974, in New York City. She is Ray Liotta’s fiancée and is presently 48 years old. Prior to her marriage to Liotta, she was married to film producer Joey Nittolo. Jacy Nittolo’s personal life is unknown, however, she is not affiliated with the entertainment business and is not a public personality. According to reports, she has been interested in hairstyling and haircutting since she was 16 years old and began working at a salon at the age of 19.

Nittolo’s ex-husband Joey apparently purchased her the same business, although it’s unclear whether she still works as a hairdresser there. Jacy and her ex-husband have four children: Dax, Chazz, Joey, and Jade. The lady grew up alongside her brother, but tragedy struck the family when the latter suffered brain damage in a vehicle accident in 2002. In 2018, Nittolo paid tribute to his brother on Instagram, praising his battling spirit and determination:

After her divorce from Joey Nittolo, Jacy Nittolo began dating Ray Liotta in 2019. The pair kept primarily out of the spotlight until Liotta discussed their relationship on the Live With Kelly and Ryan podcast in 2021. The actor said that he and Liotta met because their children encouraged them to date:

“My 22-year-old daughter and her 21-year-old son were at a party when Karsen, my daughter, approached Jacy and said, ‘I want you to go out with my dad.’ ‘I believe you’d be ideal for my father.'”

Nittolo was first wary of the connection, according to Liotta, because of the former’s profession:

“‘Oh, all right, so, your dad, what does he do?'” ‘He’s an actor,’ she added, and she stopped right then, and I replied, ‘I don’t want anything to do with an actor.'”

He said that Nittolo was concerned about their large age difference, while Liotta was concerned about Nittolo’s 10-year-old child:

“‘Wait a minute, isn’t he in his 60s?'” I’m in my forties.’ But the fact that she also had a 10-year-old was a deal-breaker for me. And the last thing you want in your 60s is a 10-year-old. Fortunately, this youngster is extremely cool.”

Ray Liotta and Jacy Nittolo began dating in 2019 and plan to marry in December 2020. According to reports, Nittolo was at Liotta’s side as he died quietly in his sleep.
