Justin was born May 4, 1996, the son of Douglas and Tammy (Kjellsen) Worley, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Justin was a bright eyed, tow headed little boy who had a heart for adventure. Also known as JT and/or Nails, he graduated from Olathe Northwest High School in 2014. He began his college career in San Diego, CA and returned home to continue taking classes at JCCC, hoping to pursue a degree in Engineering. When he had moments between his full schedule working and at school, he enjoyed working on and using his custom built computer and playing games with his friends. He was involved in many sports over the years and loved playing soccer with his dad coaching.

Justin is preceded in death by his father, Douglas; his grandparents Barbara and Dale (Tiny) Worley; grandfather, Vern Kjellsen; Aunt Lynn; and his Great Aunts Betty, Lenora, and Elaine.

Justin is survived by his mother, Tammy; Siblings, Ashley (Jason), Christopher, Jason, and Allison; his grandparents Gordy and Diane Bristol; nephew Joseph, and niece Elliana; Uncles and Aunts Kevin and Jerelyn Kjellsen, Mike and Sheila Bristol, Randy and Kelley Bristol, and Mike Worley; and cousins Makena, Cameron, Kaylee, Travis, Alyssa, Brandon and Amber.

Please love on your children - some are gone too soon. Suicide has become such an epidemic with our young people and we need to address the reasons why. We love each and every one of you and do not wish for any family to have to go through this. Please do not hesitate to talk with any one of us, we are here for you as we know you are here for us.

Justin was truly an amazing person. I met him in Spanish class at ONW and although we didn't talk to each other for the first couple months, I knew he was a cool kid. We both wore black all the time, wore our hair long, and had a general dislike for society. Our cynicism was so in tune and he was just plain hilarious. After I heard the news, I went back to see our old Facebook conversations and I could just hear his voice with every word. I gave him rides to school for a short while, so we were always together in the mornings and going home from school. I'll never forget when I was pulled over for speeding with him... He couldn't let me forget it and it was great! I wish I had kept in touch with him after I graduated... I am going to miss him so much! I give you guys all my love and know you raised a great guy!

I became friends with JT online through Dalton and Austin. I really enjoyed playing poker and other games with JT. He was a great guy, and he had a very funny set of sarcasm. Although I hadn't played or talked with him recently I'll certainly miss him. It really made me realize not to take life for granted, since I am 21 as well. I hope JT can live through us, and that we never forget him.
