In Memory of Justin Zemser

Remembering "Z"

This memorial website was created in the memory of our son Justin Brandon Zemser who was born on March 25, 1995 and passed away on May 12, 2015 in Philadelphia, PA at the age of 20. Justin died in the Amtrak train derailment on his way back home to Rockaway Beach, NY. Justin was a sweet, funny, kind, caring, loving, bright, talented, wonderful and amazing young man. These few words will never be able to express all that he was and all that he meant to his family and friends. Justin was our only son, our bright shining star, and the love of our lives.

He entered and left this world with such a beautiful meaningful spirit. He lived his life with fun, joy, laughter, silliness, smiles and with a heart full of love for his family, his friends, his teachers, his Hebrew study partner, his snake, bearded dragon and turtles, and his home. He lit up every room he entered. Justin was full of life and kept a positive outlook wherever he went.  He was a born leader, and was his own person who respected everyone's opinion and expected the same in return. He touched our lives everyday with sunshine and love. He made us burst with pride every single day of his life, and Heaven must be an even more beautiful place now with our "Midshipman" there.


We will love, miss and remember him forever in our hearts.


Susan and Howard Zemser
