During summer break JJ would volunteer at Blue- ridge Christian Camp as a camp counselor.  JJ went on to attend Liberty University, a private evangelical Christian school in Lynchburg, VA to further expand his education in hopes of being a successful entrepreneur.

JJ was a man of God and worked within his Church religiously. He was very passionate about spreading the Gospel of Jesus to others. JJ went on a mission trip to Haiti a few years back to spread the word of God. JJ loved the outdoors. Some of his hobbies included hiking the trails in the mountains and sailing the open water with his Grandpa Ed whom he adored so much. JJ was also very passionate about volunteering in his community. Some of the areas he volunteered were homeless shelters in assisting with serving food, and the friendship house where he would help kids with their studies. JJ was known for his beautiful smile, giving heart and kind spirit.

  1. So sorry. Josh was my 5th grade student and a delight to work with. The world lost a sweet young man. Prayers to all.

  2. Rebecca Jeffries

    Praying for the family and for JJ’s grandmother, Rita, who played such a critical role in his upbringing. May God bring peace and comfort in the midst of such sadness!

  3. This world lost a beautiful light… one that shined so bright for Jesus. Something JJ told me when I was grieving the loss of a dear friend was, “ Don’t blame yourself… Cass, you have done the amount God wanted you to do in this persons life. Did he provide you opportunities to do more? Maybe. But you did exactly the amount God knew and had planned for you to do. Nothing more nothing less. You can’t blame yourself or feed into the lies of Satan during this sad time.” -JJ

    I leave these words with you family and friends as we grieve this Son, brother, uncle, and friend. May His life be the reason we turn to Jesus as that was His goal in life was. To make sure others KNEW JESUS CHRIST.

    Sending Condolences to Family and Friends. My Heart goes out to The Family. I saw JJ many times in Northside High School Band @ the Football Games..He knew our grandson, William, who played in the Band, also. Praying 🙏 for Comfort and Peace for the Family, during this difficult time. Grieving Is Not A Weakness, Grieving Is Not Lack of Faith, Grieving Is The Price of Love ❤️ R.I.P. JJ

  6. I’m praying for you all as you honor JJ in Texas. I know your hearts must be aching. I count myself so fortunate to have known JJ for over 10 years here in Virginia. He was generous and wise and such a good friend to my son.

  7. Blessings and prayers to Rita Cone his grandmom who helped care for him and raise him. prayers to all who suffer this tragic loss of life. May God comfort the family and allow them to support one another in this hour of need.

  8. JJ attended Northside HS with my granddaughter and they were in band together. I wish he knew how much he meant to each of the band members. They all are very sadden by the loss of JJ. I worked with Rita and I know how proud her and Ed were of JJ. They worked very hard to instill the belief of God in him, he attended church camps, he went to Haiti with the church and with Rita’s and Ed’s assistance. He was involved in many activities due to the help of his grandparents. I know they treasured every minute they had with him. He was such a polite young man to all. He will truly be missed.

  9. I am so very sorry to hear of JJ’s passing. While we grieve here on earth, we have the eternal hope that JJ is with Jesus face to face, and is now made perfect. His grandmother, Rita, is someone I love and admire. She never failed to speak so highly of JJ and expressed such gratitude for having been able to raise him, and be such a godly influence in his life. We pray for his family in both Texas and Virginia.
