Trying to recreate jump arc using recorded points

I recorded points from Super Mario Maker 2 at 60fps using the pixel art style to measure and record points frame by frame of the player jumping. The recorded points can be found here: https://pastebin.com/sX4SS7n8

Image of the recorded jump arc and details about how I captured the points can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/RpjQkLh (I spent the last week repeating these steps five times to make sure the points were constant, which they were. Even with the platform and camera at different heights).

I am having trouble re-creating the first half of the jump. Any recommendations towards building the first part of the jump arc? I think the player uses two different parabolas for rising and falling, but the rising parabola does not match any I can make.
