Christopher Alan Mulloy was born in Fairfax, Virginia on January 6th, 1987 to Paul Mulloy Jr. and Kathy Mulloy. He was raised in Sterling, Virginia where he was an avid drummer and track and field athlete. He graduated from Park View High School in 2005. He was baptized at the Church of Latter-day Saints in January 2007.
He served four years with the Department of Homeland Security as a TSA Officer at Dulles Airport before enlisting in the Navy in 2011. After completing Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Station, he became a Hospital Corpsman, completing the Basic Medical Technician Corpsman Program at Joint Base Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. After completing initial medical training, he attended Field Medical School in Camp Johnson, North Carolina, graduating in 2012. Following his completion of training he reported to Walter Reed Medical Hospital where he served as a Lab Technician. During his time in service he earned the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, a Good Conduct Medal, and the Navy Rifle and Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon. Before separating he was recognized by Walter Reed for his exhaustive donation of over 25 platelet units, he was the first person in the hospital to receive the honor. He left the Navy with an honorable discharge in May 2017.
During his time in the military Chris also completed an Associate’s Degree in Health Science and Laboratory Technology from George Washington University. He was accepted into the accelerated Bachelor of Science and Nursing (BSN) program at George Washington University.
Chris’s choice to follow a medical career was an extension of his unfailing desire to help others. His love for his family and patriotism for his country were instantly obvious. He loved jazz, playing the drums and collecting the records of the likes of John Coltrane, Buddy Rich and Miles Davis. A true renaissance man, Chris was also passionate about poetry, cooking, motorcycles, philosophy, and of course his two beloved cats. His infectious sense of humor lit up each room he walked into and will be greatly missed by all that knew the incredible man that he was.
