I never had the pleasure to meet Justin in person, but we have played games together for the better part of two years. I can say, without a doubt, that Jozz was one of the nicest, kind hearted people I have ever met. He would always play games with everybody, no matter the skill level. I know these words wont make the loss any easier, but I hope the family knows that he was a real one. A person I have never met, but I have cried 3 different times after learning of his passing. The world needs more Justin's in it, and his loss will stay with me forever. I'll truly miss his goofy laughter and his always interesting vocabulary.

In the words of the great Justin Jozz Joslyn, this is "scuffed".
RIP buddy, i'll miss you.
