    J.J. was mentor and a dear friend of mine. I learned alot from J.J. and shared a lot of laughs along the way. My heart is broken as I was unable to see him or say goodbye in a way I would have liked. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and a piece of his legacy will forever be branded on my heart. Rest in peace my dear friend.
