Justin Constantine Obituary and Death – Dahlia Hamza Constantine of Arlington, Virginia, as well as Rudolph and Judith D. Constantine of Fairfax, Virginia, wish to convey their deepest condolences, love, and respect to the Constantine family as they share the news that their cherished husband and son Justin passed away on May 5, 2022, at the age of 52, after waging a two-year battle against prostate cancer.

After completing his high school education at Fairfax High School in 1988, Justin continued his education at James Madison University (1992) and the University of Denver Law School (1998). Following the completion of his second year at the University of Denver Law School, he enlisted in the Marine Corps.

In his life, Justin was a special person to a great number of people. He was a husband, a son, a brother, an uncle, a teammate on a rugby team, a highly regarded motivational speaker, a lawyer, a childhood friend, a golf partner, a fraternity brother, a veteran’s advocate, an author, a business executive, and a loyal Marine. He will be greatly missed by all of these people and more.

He was shot in the head by a sniper in Iraq, but his story of overcoming adversity and making a success of his life has been an inspiration to a great number of people. When speaking in public about that fateful day, Justin would frequently bring up the navy corpsman named George Grant, who performed an emergency tracheotomy on the battlefield and saved his life, as well as the Marines who acted with unwavering courage to get him to an air medical transport as quickly as possible. Justin has been through a lot in the sixteen years since his injury in war and subsequent recovery, but he would always say, “Don’t feel sorry for me, I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”

The lifestyle that Justin maintained was one of constant motion. When he was a young boy, he lived in Vienna and London. During his time in those cities, he went skiing in the Alps of Germany, France, and Austria. He also camped in Budapest, Prague, Sarajevo, and Cannes, and he traveled through Spain. On the farm that belonged to his grandparents in Tuscany, he would spend the summers working and playing there. Dahlia and Justin first became acquainted in Argentina, where they had both traveled to study Spanish. They went all over the world together, including Egypt, where he was introduced to the entire Hamza Clan and had the opportunity to ride a camel. Justin was able to meet his heroes and walk in the footsteps of greats as he healed from his wounds. He also had the opportunity to communicate with literally thousands of people both in person and via television. He wrote books in addition to founding both for-profit and not-for-profit businesses. He never squandered any portion of the day.

There were a lot of honors and awards bestowed upon Justin. A resolution commending Justin for his unwavering commitment to helping veterans and other wounded warriors was passed through the Virginia State Legislature in the year 2012. Champion of Change for Veterans was a title that President Obama bestowed upon Justin. In recognition of his efforts on behalf of veterans, he was presented with the Lincoln award in 2015 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, District of Columbia. In addition to this, the Henry Viscardi Achievement Award was bestowed upon him in 2017 for his work in influencing attitudes and enhancing the quality of life for people who live with disabilities.
