Justus is a Staff Member at the Fullerton YMCA.
I grew up at the North Orange County YMCA during the late 90’s and early 2000’s, prior to the facility renovation. I was able to play basketball with my Down syndrome brother who was our team MVP. As I went through junior high and high school the Y was where I could train for water polo and swimming. In my senior year, I received my lifeguarding certification and I knew exactly where to apply. Since 2007, I have become an even more tight-knit part of the Y family. The now Fullerton Family YMCA has supported me and my family through two different deployments with the United States Army and allowed me opportunities to become stronger professionally, personally and spiritually. Wherever I travel, I always know I have a warm shower and friendly faces at the nearest YMCA.
