He grew up in Cozad and graduated valedictorian of the Class of 1999. Justin earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from Hastings College; and his Master’s Degree in Information Security Management from Jones International University. As a young boy he was active in Cub Scouts and loved to play baseball. He took lessons and learned to play the guitar and later enjoyed playing his bass guitar. Justin was active in his youth group at church and enjoyed many trips with them. He toured and sang with the New Way Singers from Nebraska Christian College for four years. This was where he met the love of his life, Jessica Neuhold.

On January 17th, 2004, Justin and Jessica were united in marriage in Lamar, Colorado. They began their married life in North Platte, Nebraska where Justin worked in the IT department for the City of North Platte. In 2006 they were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Lorelai Kaylee. In 2007 the family moved to Omaha where Justin began working for CSG. In 2008 their family was complete with the birth of their second beautiful daughter, Kelti Lorraine. Justin was a very loving, devoted husband and father. His family was his life. He enjoyed playing with his girls, taking them golfing, and attending all of their Girl Scout and school events. He even gave up his parking spot in the garage so they could be a “cookie cupboard” for the Girl Scouts.
