An Unwelcome Diagnosis Returns

Justin was recently diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia affecting his spleen.  This is the second time in his life to have cancer. The first time was when he was 4. Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, “J Wall” overcame leukemia in his childhood and found hockey. He fell in love with the sport and played for Arvada Youth Hockey, Denver Pioneers Youth Hockey, and the Omaha Jr Lancers AA.

Player Turned Coach

Justin has been coaching since he was nineteen years old. He is described as a loud and passionate coach, one that knows a lot about the game and gets kids to care about the systems he is teaching. More importantly, he gets kids to fall in love with the sport. He is often described by former players as one of their favorites. His coaching included two NHLers, Brandon Carlo and Jaccob Slavin, as well as the first AAA National Championship out of Colorado with the 2010 U16 Thunderbirds.

Currently Undergoing Treatment

This energetic and passionate coach has been slowed down by this cancer diagnosis. His legs and feet swell after an 8-hour day. This has caused his spleen to become enlarged from his blood working against different cells. Despite that, he, his brother, Tanner and mom, Delinda maintain a positive spirit. Unfortunately, the family just got the results from the PET CT scan. His cancer has returned after 40 years of being cancer free. Justin will be starting a round of chemo in hopes to decrease the size of the spleen, and not need surgery.
