Joe was a good friend. I met him freshman year of high school. He loved to dance and sing in science class freshman year when Mr. Hoffman our science teacher at the time put on some music. He always had a smile on his face and was a sweet boy. We will miss you Joe. Rest in peace.

My heart broke when I got the news about Joe. He was such a sweet boy and grew into such a handsome young man. I had Joe on my school bus with his sister and two brothers and grew very fond of Joe. His smile would just make my day and his beautiful blue eyes could calm just about anyone. My sympathy is with his entire family. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers as they go through this very difficult time. May Joe rest in peace in God's arms now. He will never be forgotten.

Joe lit up a room everywhere he went with his infectious smile and positive attitude. He was the biggest fan of the Cougars there ever was and his spirit will live on through the students and staff who were blessed to have known him. I will miss his fist bumps and his contagious energy, but his memory will live on. "Smiles for Joe" will always serve as a reminder that true happiness is found when we seek to put the needs of others before our own. God rest your soul Joe. We will miss you, but we will see you again someday.

One year ago today, we lost a beautiful angel from Colts Neck High School. Joey, I wanted to tell you that you were enthusiastic and nice young man. I also wanted to tell you that your New York Mets are in the World Series! If you were alive, you would have been really excited to watch them play there.
