Azulai majored in Bible studies and communications. His friends and teachers said he was one of the funniest and most social students in his class. He was also a talented forward for his school's soccer team.
Lior's aunt Iris Azulai was killed in a terror attack in Jerusalem 12 years ago.
Nine other children from Azulai's high school were hurt in Sunday's bombing on the Egged bus. On the previous attack in Jerusalem on Jan. 29, a fellow schoolmate was seriously hurt and is still hospitalized . The school also lost two pupils in a terror attack in a pedestrian mall in the center of the city six years ago.

Nathaniel HavshushStaff Sergeant Nathaniel Havshush had spent a quite Shabbat at home and was heading back to his army base near Netzarim when bus No. 14 exploded Sunday.
Havshush had a unique love of life that he tried to spread to others, his relatives said.
"He always made other people laugh," recalled his older sister Orit. "He was a good boy, and a good brother."
Havshush was born and raised in Jerusalem, where he attended the ORT high school.
He enlisted in the Givati Brigade, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Oded, who was wounded during his service in Lebanon.
Havshush had completed his officers course last month and loved serving his country, friends said.
"It's very hard to talk about someone when you are still waiting for him to come back," added Orit.
Havshush, the youngest of four, leaves behind his parents, a sister, and two brothers.
He was buried on Sunday night, at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.

Yehuda HaimYehuda Haim owned a grocery store on Shlomzion Hamalka Street in downtown Jerusalem and was a well-known figure in the capital.
The 48-year-old married man with three children had turned his store into a social focus for many who frequented the center of the city.
Yehuda was not in the habit of going to work on the bus but Sunday morning, he took his new car to a Talpiot garage for repairs.
After dropping his vehicle off, he got on the ill-fated bus No. 14. Yehuda's father opened the store many years ago and it is now owned by the four sons in the family.
Yehuda began working there 20 years ago and continued to do so despite a debilitating back injury he suffered on military service in Lebanon.
Yehuda's brother-in-law, Baruch Almog, said he had been the center of attention at family events. His funeral will be held Monday, 3:00 P.M., at the Givat Shaul cemetery.
Yuval OzanaYuval Ozana, 31, was on his way home Sunday morning when bus No. 14 exploded.
Ozana, who worked two jobs to support his struggling family, had just finished the night shift at the Talpiot branch of the Mega food market chain.
Friends and family described him as quiet, optimistic, modest, and hardworking.
"He would have done anything for his family," recalled friend Shlomo Ganish.
Financial difficulties had recently forced Ozana, his wife, and their two children to leave their Pisgat Ze'ev apartment and move in with Ozana's parents in Ramat Denya. Friends said they were hoping to save enough money to return home.
Sunday's attack was the third terror-related tragedy the family has faced in recent years: Ozana's uncle was killed four years ago after a shooting attack in the West Bank, and two of his nephews were seriously wounded in the Ben Yehuda bombing two years ago.
"This is a very difficult time for our family," said Udi Buzaglo, Ozana's cousin. "It's indescribable, and it is happening all over again."
Ozana was laid to rest Sunday night at the Givat Shaul cemetery.
