Tragically, Justin took his own life on July 9, 2010. He was only 15 years old. Justin never had the opportunity to learn that things do in fact get better. Shortly after his death, his family and friends made it their mission to tell Justin’s story and to make sure that other young gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning students would no longer have to go through the hardships Justin faced. It is now their mission to let students know that there is help available and that every person is born with gifts that need to be shared. Justin’s Gift is just one of those efforts!
