CJ Carrozzella died on March 3, 2003, from injuries he received in a motor vehicle accident. At the time of his death, he was 17 years old and a junior at Xavier High School in Middletown.
During his short life, CJ engaged in sports and activities, both in school and within the community; and had found a love for dance at the end of his life. CJ touched many lives as a result of his involvement in all of these activities.
In 2003, CJ’s family founded this tax exempt foundation in his memory in order to carry on CJ’s Spirit of life. The Spirit of CJ Foundation’s mission is to donate the proceeds from benefit events to community charitable organizations consistent with the philosophy and spirit of CJ.
The Foundation’s flagship event is the Annual Benefit Golf Tournament.
The Spirit of CJ lives on forever through the foundation.
