Dexter Kane Justice James

$4,728 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 8 months
Created October 27, 2018
Dexter Kane Justice James, known by his family and friends as Justice, was taken from us on the night of October 23, 2018, in a senseless act of gun violence in a neighborhood he considered home. Justice moved to Woodland Hills, CA, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 7th grade with his mother and younger brother and attended Hale Middle School and El Camino Real High School. 


Justice's mom and brother moved back East to Maine after he graduated high school, but he stayed in L.A. to be near his friends and grandmother, who lives in West Hills.

He was an amazing brother, friend, son, grandson, beat-maker, lyricist, visual artist, basketball player, skateboarder, fashion designer, trend-setter and so much more. He inspired people of all ages in so many different ways and had a smile that could light up any room.


In the past year, Justice was in between apartments and jobs. He had recently been hired by Postmates and had plans to get a place with his two best friends.

Not only is his death a shock to us all, it has also created an unplanned financial burden. The purpose of this GoFundMe is to raise money for a celebration of Justice's life with a memorial at a local West Valley park, to help his family with cremation and burial expenses back in Maine, and to cover any travel expenses for the family.

We greatly appreciate any donation you can make to raise $10,000 and are looking to reach that goal before the holiday season. The details of the memorial will be announced at a later date but we are looking at spring 2019.

Hey everyone, I wanted to thank you again for your amazing donations and update y’all on some things. The celebration of his life will be in Late February in the Valley, most likely at a local park (more details as they come). Also, Justice’s mother Stacy started a foundation for righting societal wrongs and for shedding light on difficult issues such as gun violence, homelessness, and domestic violence. The link to the foundation is:

Until next time,
