Rest In Peace Sweet Friend

As most of you have heard by now, we have lost another beloved member of our community.Justin Poitras- Boston Firefigher, former U.S. Marine, long time CrossFit Southie member, recent CrossFit Southie intern, and friend, lost his life on July 4th from head injuries sustained after being struck by a vehicle while riding his motorcycle on July 3rd. Justin’s body was in good enough condition after the crash that his organs were able to be passed on to those in need.

This is such a heart-breaking loss. We loved Justin. Justin had a kind heart and a gentle soul. He was always happy, extremely generous, and constantly smiling. Chris and I both grew closer with Justin during the ski trip this past winter. He quickly went from being a cool dude to becoming one of our favorite people. His laidback demeanor could make anyone feel comfortable in his presence. Justin was as good as they come.  He was taken from us too soon and he will be sorely missed. Our heart goes out to his family as they cope through this tragedy.

Next Saturday we will be doing a memorial workout for Justin, we will have updates on that throughout the week. In the meantime please consider donating to Justin’s family to cover the medical bills and funeral expenses- https://www.gofundme.com/justin-poitras

Information about services will be updated as soon as they are released.

Please take a moment to love and appreciate the people in your life. It can all be taken away in an instant.
