It is with deepest sorrow we announce our beloved DJ, age 24, passed away on June 12, 2020. At the time of his death, DJ was hard at work fixing his first car. He never let a lack of transportation slow him down, however, and traveled the Twin Cities on two wheels or two feet to visit friends and family, fueled by Pokémon GO and the music of Chief Keef (please don't Google it if you're over 30). Those visits invariably included DJ charming his host into cooking. Where such a skinny kid put all that food remains one of life's great mysteries. DJ was a sports fanatic. His love/hate relationship with MN sports teams, particularly the Twins and Vikings, was legendary, and produced hi-fives, tears and profanity. He played competitively on many teams. As a young adult, DJ struggled with addiction. Despite the deep pain addiction caused him, it couldn't diminish his caring and generous spirit. He loved his people fiercely, and was loved fiercely in return. We will miss him every moment. His goofy sense of humor, contagious laugh and dazzling smile will live on in our memory. He is survived by his parents Nicole and Morgan, his father Joseph (Tracy), sisters Madison and Sophia, children Jayden (mom Alice) and Aubrey (mom Madeline), his loving grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends, and his arch-nemesis, the namesake of one football video game who everyone knows cheats shamelessly. A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 26 promptly at 1:30pm at Church of the Assumption, 51 7th St. West in downtown St. Paul. All are welcome. A private reception will be held on Sunday, June 28. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of the following in his memory: southsideharmreduction.org/baylaurelfund.com/
