Happy 30th Birthday Justin!

Dear Justin,

By now, you are on a plane, bound for NYC for HOPEFULLY a weekend of a lifetime. It’s your 30th birthday today. I’ve been waiting for you to turn 30 since the day I found out you were only 24! Hahaha!! And nowI’mm 2 years away from being 40! WTH! LOL!! But holy how much you’ve experienced in your first 30 years.

From before I even met you, the amount you have achieved. From friendships, travel, sports, professional snowboarding,  goals and dreams. And how much has happened in the short 6 years we’ve been together is mind-blowing … from starting your own business, getting engaged, renovating our home, becoming a dog dad, a human dad (the best one in the world, too!) building our own house together, landing our own hit TV show about our life and most recently a spot on Love It Or List, building your own personal brand, succeeding in your career with Innocept as a Developer Representative / Project Manager ….  and becoming the BEST partner a girl could ask for. You’ve achieved a lot in your first 30 years, babe.

Your support for me and my career, and your love for me as a mom and as a woman blows my mind. I often look at you and think HOW LUCKY am I to have this stud of a man to live this life with me.

I hope your birthday week has been everything you’ve dreamed of, Leo, Nacho and I LOVE YOU MORE THAN you know and hope this is the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!

From Matt Pasutto

Happy Birthday, J-Dog!!

I can’t believe we are adults! So stoked to have been your partner in crime for the last 30 (28) years and I’m so stoked to be there riding shotgun next to you for the next 30 years.

Love you so much, man. I am so grateful to you for always being there for me. You have always had my back no matter what, and even though we argue sometimes, we always end up back on the same team. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing how you are as a dad and where you have ended up. I have always looked up to you, and I think I do now more than ever. Seeing the family you have created with Jill and the zone you guys have created for your family is so amazing! You are such an amazing dad and you have truly found the perfect gal for you.

Also, your lawn is unreal. Nice Work Bro!

Happy Birthday, Bro!

Love you man,

– Love your little bro, Matt

From Peggy & Glen

I remember vividly the first time I met Justin – it was at a family picnic out at Bear ? Creek campground. Later in the afternoon, we decided to take some family photos. Among the group were very close friends of ours, Sue & Jay Nayyar – Sue is very outspoken & motioned for Justin to get into the family photo – AWKWARD !! both for Justin & Jillian since that was after only one date!!! Well ……guess what !! Now Justin is in all the family photos – lol along with precious Leo & Jillian !! Happy Birthday, Justin !!!!

– Lots of love ? Peggy

From Big Jill’s Daddy-o-: A momentous occasion turning 30. I would like to wish you the happiest of birthdays. Continue making your life and my daughter’s life a happy one and bless you for our grandson. Keep up the good work.

Charles and I LOVED Justin from the moment we met him! He joined us at Charlie’s baby shower 6 years ago and beamed with confidence and kindness- a keeper from day 1. Fast forward 6 years and I couldn’t imagine not having him in our family. Charles and Justin are like best friends which makes me over-the-moon happy… so many great memories already and so many more to come! Justin, happy 30th bro, you’re such a solid human being and we are SO GRATEFUL you are in our lives, we love you!!!

Thanks for all the adventures buddy it’s been memories we will never forget, sometimes well … actually I guess most of the time they don’t really turn out like we planned but then what story would we have to tell?? If I had to be stuck somewhere with someone it would be you, we have been training for it lol. I need someone to keep the tools organized and someone to make sure the gear is perfectly placed around camp lol. 

Pretty proud of you man I won’t tell any stories from the past but I will say you are now a kick-ass Dad and I admire you so much for that. Jill, Leo, and Nacho are lucky to have a Dad like you and I’m lucky to have a friend like you!

From Warwick Andrews

Happy 30th Birthday JP! I am so proud of you, and the man that you have become. When I picture you in my head I still think of the high school version of you, doing hilarious things like ripping RC cars around Walmart … some of the wildest times I’ve had were with you as my copilot egging me on to drift my car. Like the time we completed a 360 on Bow Trail, or that time we ripped my front bumper off on the narrow Edworthy Park road, and of course that time we launched pizza across the entire interior hahaha. Now you’re a full blown family man with real responsibilities, but I couldn’t be more happy to see that this role is fitting you just perfectly. I miss all those amazing old times, but I can’t wait for the new ones to come. Love you buddy!
