On a personal note
Jack was my partner, best friend, and husband for 23 years. He was intelligent, witty at times, incredibly charming when he chose to be. He was my teacher, sometimes my boss, most of the time my child. He could be like a 3 year old with a new toy - exuberant, pouty and a little too rough, not knowing his own strength. Or he could be as gentle and loving as a sleepy puppy or a kind, caring giant. If he hadn't been a musician he would have been a history teacher. On top of knowing music through and through, he knew history and geography like a professor. He could mingle with the rich and famous with as much ease as with the mechanic at the gas station. In front of the tv watching hockey he swore like a sailor, but in public he was as refined as the nuns that taught him in grade school. He wasn't the best man in the world, but he was far from the worst. I loved him with all my heart. I know he's in a good place and stops by to check on me once in awhile. Our purpose here in life is to learn, for our spirits to grow. I hope being with me was a good thing for him. I know being with him was a good thing for me. He just graduated early and I'm sure is on to the next lesson. I'll catch up later.
from renowned director/producer Joe Sarno. Besides being a lovely young man, Jack Justis was a musical genius. He wrote stirring harmonies for several of my little films before going on to greater triumphs. It was a beautiful tribute to my work to have Jack's magnificent sounds on the music track. God bless you Jack. – Joe Sarno
