My heart is breaking for your entire family. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember DJs contagious smile and never ending sense of adventure most of all. He was part of our family for many years along with Dustin as they spent their child and pre-teen days playing between our houses in Chicopee. I am grateful for those memories. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I remember DJ most as a young boy, probably around 8 or 9. Jenn and I were roommates and have been very close friends for over 25 years. It was always DJ and Dustin side by side, everywhere we would go. Laughing and playing but always together. I specifically remember the excitement at the house around Christmas holidays and the boys counting down the days until Santa came. I miss those days. And DJ will be missed but not forgotten.
My heart goes out to Jenn, Chris, Dustin, Max and Chloe and the rest of Dj's family and close friends. I am truly sorry for your loss and hope that each of you finds peace, strength, love, and comfort for each other in this difficult time.

First of all, I just want to say how sorry I am for my friend Jen and her family. Jen and I go way back to the early 80’s when we were very close. We were at each other’s apartments all the time. I remember DJ when he was a little boy. His sweet voice and cute face. Although I never got to know DJ after that, growing into the young man he was, I am thankful that god let DJ be a part of my life to. I pray for his families suffering, this void in their hearts from the loss of a child, brother, cousin will hurt. I pray that I will never have to endure what they are going through for this is a parents nightmare. I will never forget that precious boys smiling face that I once knew. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with you Jen and your family. I love you my friend. ❤️

DJ was more than a cousin, more like my big brother. Always my confidant and comfort with laughter and pure honest, raw truth about all aspects of life. Your legacy will be more than memories to so many people. Your loyalty will be matched with all angels where your next journey takes your beautiful soul. See you in another life, for now its see you later I love you so much.
