Our thoughts and prayers are with you as a family and as part of the Christ School family. Both Griffin and Parker knew him and liked him. Joey was an incredibly talented lacrosse player, a good brother to other CS boys, and most importantly a loving brother & son. Our heart aches for your families’ loss and the worlds loss. He was way too young and I know that you’ll miss him each and every day. May God comfort you and may you find peace knowing that he is not suffering and God will hold him close. ❤️

Gone too soon..... Joey always had a smile on his face. He was a very fun and positive person. For those who played against him he was a fierce competitor. He was an incredible lacrosse player, big brother, friend and teammate to Alex and his Christ school brothers. Christi and I were lucky to have known Joey and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his mom, brother, grandparents and his Rollins family during this difficult time. Rest In Peace Joey Cinque.

Fleur, James, and Family, Our hearts are so heavy, and there are no words to express how sorry we are for your pain. We will always remember Joey as sweet, athletic, funny, and with that beautiful smile. Andrew was lucky have called Joey a friend, and I know he holds those memories of their time together at Rosarian very close to his heart. Our family wishes we could be at his service, but we regret that we will be out of town. Many many hugs and prayers for you from our family.
