About the Justin T. Dimino Memorial Scholarship Fund: The Fund is a component charitable fund of the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. This fund was created by Justin’s family to honor and memorialize Justin who passed away suddenly on January 9, 2011 at the age of 16. “Justin will forever hold a special place in all our hearts,” said Justin’s mother, Stephanie Stack.
Justin Dimino was in his junior year at Monroe-Woodbury High School at the time of his passing. According to Justin’s family, he was a boy who lit up the room with his smile and personality. Justin was the starting defensive back for the Championship Crusader Football Team at Monroe-Woodbury High School. Football was the love of his life, as was his family and friends.
