CJ was an amazing happy boy with a smile that lit up the room. His fun personality and uplifting aura brought light to all that met him.
He attended Crossroads Center and Wildwood schools in Schenectady where he was surrounded by so many who loved him and helped him become the beautiful boy he was. CJ enjoyed spending his days at school with his teachers, staff, and his “friends”. He loved the simple things in life whether it was his swing in his yard, swimming in his pool, or watching endless hours of movies and YouTube videos, or maybe even “Selena” ;)
His family would like to thank the Melodies Center at AMC and the staff at the Albany Medical Center PICU along with all the doctors and caregivers that have touched his life in so many ways.
He taught us so much and will be loved and missed by many. We love you CJ may you fly high.”
