About Justin:
Justin Elliott was a courageous young man who lived life to the fullest despite living his college years with an incurable disease which ultimately took his life. He was a graduate of the Gilmer High School Class of 2008. Justin was an avid tennis player competing in several USTA tournaments in addition to playing tennis for both Gilmer Middle and High School. He had a thirst for learning both in and out of the classroom, and had a great yearning to experience meaningful activities, places and people. Justin was a bright, loving young man who made an impact on everyone he met. Please help us make this event a success while thinking of Justin and the game he loved.
