Joseph M. Juriga

Joseph M. Juriga
of Binghamton
Joseph M. Juriga, 28, of Binghamton, unexpectedly left us on Monday, November 2, 2009. He is survived by his loving family: his parents, Teresa (DeRitis) and Samuel Juriga; brothers, Jonathan and Matthew; sisters, Jessica, Gina and Kathryn; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Joe was born on April 9, 1981 in Binghamton and resided in Florida for many years. He is a graduate of Chenango Forks High School and SUNY New Paltz where he graduated summa cum laude. Joe will be remembered for his warmth, sense of humor, creative talent, curiosity, and love of life. He was usually making people laugh, playing lacrosse, playing/enjoying music, or designing something unique. Over the past few months, Joe was a devoted caregiver to his father while he recovered from a bone marrow transplant. Above all, Joe was a great friend and inspiration to many; he will be missed beyond description.
Family and friends will gather to celebrate Joe's life at a Memorial Mass at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 7, 2009, at St. Francis of Assisi Church, Hillcrest, NY. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in memory of Joe may be made to the American Cancer Society and/or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Arrangements are by the James V. DeMarco & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango St., Port Dickinson, NY.

Joe was always the guy that everyone wanted to know and it's very obvious how many lives he changed just by reading his guest book. Miss you Joe and won't ever forget you.

Joe's memory will be alive in the hearts of those he inspired, laughed, and befriended. He and I worked closely together in 2006-2008 in the Advertising Federation of Ft. Lauderdale. We had a blast together and he was a great leader, teacher and friend. Joe, I miss you buddy. Rest in Peace and I'm happy you got to see Phish one last time.

Love always,

Dear Juriga Family,

Joe's locker was next to mine all throughout middle and high school; he was always making people laugh in class and in between classes! I will always remember his many talents from art to lacrosse to comedy...he was truly a diverse and talented person.

I only knew Joe briefly, but in that time I found him to be a very genuine and "real" person. His passion for his craft was obvious and he was held in very high regard by his peers. I never saw him when he didn't have a smile on his face and a friendly comment. He will be missed by all of us in the Advertising Federation.
