June 17, 1985 - August 31, 2016

Justin Jay Ellery died unexpectedly at home on August 31, 2016. Justin had been fighting a battle with Pyoderma Gangrenosm for over two years, and his heart gave way to bacterial endocarditis. Justin is the beloved of Jenalee Jean Hall and his sons Shadrach Robert Joktan and Laythan Josiah Jay. Justin was born on June 17, 1985 in Spokane, WA. He grew up in the Spokane area and graduated from Ferris High School. He loved to bead, fish and play basketball. He was very artistic and drew some phenomenal pictures. People admired Justin for his talent but always talked about his HEART and how big it was. He loved life and wasn’t worried about status. Known to some as “Elbow”, he played a mean game of cards. Justin graduated from Spokane Falls Community College, Summer 2014, with his degree as an Orthotics and Prosthetics Technician. He made some amazing pieces while in school and enjoyed his internship at Thompson Orthotics. Justin was a loving husband, son, brother, father and friend.

He is also survived by MANY aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
