Dear Justin Family,

After just the first classroom lecture at NYU it was evident that Professor Justin was very special. He was a genuinely loving, inspiring, dedicated, and joyful person and mentor.

He was always willing to help students in any manner he could. His guidance served to shape my career and form character. I am sure he has inspired countless others.

I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have him as a mentor, and friend.
Thank You Thomas Justin for sharing your immense kindness for others, and impart your knowledge of the world. You will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers to the family.

Nancy, Michael, Carrie and Laura,
It is very hard to express how my family feels since you all and Tom were such a big part of us. The many years of friendship and memories will stay in our hearts. Tom was a great guy and second father to my boys, Dan and Chris. I know they will miss him as much as Steve and I will. We shared so many family affairs, holidays and vacations together. Our trips to Myrtle Beach, Fontana Village, playing cards, sharing meals, and sharing our children. It will be difficult to not have him in our lives anymore.
We will always be there to support you.

Love Pat and Steve

Dear Nancy and family.
Please accept my condolences for your very sad loss. Tom was a lovely, mild mannered, polite, kind and jolly man. I spent time with him at a number of RICS Governing Council meetings and trips to different places. He was greatly respected and loved by us all.

My deepest condolences. Professor Justin even emailed me back in February to try to set up a meeting for a student. He understood and supported his students so much and generously spent time mentoring me in his office. So sorry to hear about our loss. I will miss the unfinished meeting with him forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Dearest Nancy and The Justin Family

Although we have never met, I feel I know you, as Tom spoke of you all with such love and pride.

Tom was a dear friend, confidant and supporter, offering wise counsel in his quiet unassuming way. For his profession, RICS, he was such a fantastic advocate and ambassador, a true professional in every sense. A man of integrity, trust and knowledge who was always willing to support others. A role model, mentor and friend to so many people all over the world.

I am truly honoured to have known him and to have had his friendship for so many years through RICS. I was so privileged he came to be there for my inauguration as RICS President and I will always treasure his kind words and advice on that occasion. A friend and mentor that I will truly miss dearly.

My heart and prayers go to you his family at this time ..... may he rest in peace. God bless you Tom Justin.

I find it impossible to express in a few words the sorrow I feel from losing a great friend for the past 55 years. While I mourn Tom's passing, I am blessed to have had such a great friend for so many years. Tom was a pillar of strength for his family and friends, who was always there when they needed him. Over the years we were always there for each other, whether in person, by phone or text message. I always knew Tom was close by if I needed him. I will miss and remember all the great times we shared over the years. Tom will be greatly missed but never forgotten. May my brother rest in peace. You will be forever in my prayers .
