Obituary

Jonathan Kim Justice, also known as “Big John”, is an unforgettable, charismatic figure in our community. Growing up, him and his older brother, Jarvis, were known as the “Justice Boys”, and provided a sense of identity, protection and inspiration to their younger siblings. People didn’t mess with the Justice Boys’ younger brother Joe, or their sisters “The Justice Girls”, Jeanette and Janice, and were quick to include them because of the family name. In high school he was an athlete. His imposing stature and physical ability allowed him to excel in three sports: football, wrestling and track. John was a natural protector, and his kind heart attracted more than his physical presence deterred. His life exuded love and his caring heart compelled him to a life of service to others.
While still in high school John became the primary caregiver to his great uncle, Theodore Roosevelt; caring for him as he progressed through the stages of Alzheimer’s. After Uncle Roosevelt’s passing, John took it upon himself to continue care for his Great Aunt Abby as she aged. His presence there turned the home into the family hub. John commonly hosted holiday events and other family get togethers, bringing more joy to his aging aunt. As time went on his servitude to his family began to extend outward into the community, turning the home from family hub to community hangout. The downstairs section of the home became known as the “Barber Shop”, a popular spot everyone went to to see Big John to get their back to school cuts.
Following his passion to help others, John attended Norfolk State University, majoring in Social Work. From there, Johnathan worked in numerous youth group homes. He had a strong desire to help at risk kids. Johnathan’s work ethic was relentless. In addition to his work with at risk youth, John managed projects maintaining and remodeling property, which included everything from mowing lawns to framing decks.
Eventually as time went on, Big John had born to him a Little John. From day one he was a totally hands on father, and as little John matured, he became his daddy’s little sidekick. Where big John went, little John followed. During the 12 years the two were able to share together, Big John instilled in Little John the importance of hard work. This summer, the summer of 2019, Little John had the special opportunity to work side by side with his dad every day, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
In life, Jonathan surrounded himself with all of the things he loved. He loved to work, he loved to do for others, and he loved his family. John will be remembered by his father and mother, James and Junoe Justice, his sisters, Jeanette and Janice Justice, his brother, Joseph Justice, his son, Jonathan Kim Justice Jr., his niece, Tamaya Shannon, and his nephews Donavan and Julian Justice, as well as an entire community of friends, family and people he loved.
We, his family and all who will remember him, are grateful to have shared time with such a giving soul. Not only are we grateful for the time shared with Big John, we
are extremely grateful and blessed to have Little John, who shows all the same qualities of the good heart of his dad.
