Justin grew up in Mahopac, NY and lived here his entire life. He has a wonderful family consisting of Ryan, his younger brother, Kristi, his older sister, Patricia, his mother, and Scott, his father. Justin was always into sports. He played almost everything you could think of through out his lifetime. This is how he made most of his amazing friends. As Justin grew up he narrowed down his interests. Most of his concentration was on football. Justin began playing on varsity his sophomore year. He had a good season, then another good season his junior year. People describe Justins playing and determination as many things, most of them having some sort of meaning of a beast. Justins heart for the sport was undeniable. He put his all into it and trained hard. This showed on the field when he would carry multiple people along with the ball to gain a few extra yards. His feet never stopped going, his strength was incredible. He did not let his impeccable skills and talent cloud his head, he was always modest and never conceited. Justin also played lacrosse and boxed his junior year, along with working out at the gym. Sports were definitely not the only thing he had going for him. His academics also shined, always being an honor roll student and taking honors or college courses. Justin can be described as the all-american boy. From a distance you may think of him as a quiet timid person, but get to know him and you will rethink your judgement. Everyone who knew Justin, loved him. He had many friends who still show how much they care for him. It is extremely unfortunate that Justins drive to be all he can be was ended. It is surprising that this could happen to someone so strong that many believed him to be invincible. He never experienced his senior year of high school, got to go away to college, or get married and have a family. His opportunities were cut short, and its important to keep his memory alive.
