Justin was born on February 13, 1979 in Waukesha, WI the son of Jeffrey Wagner and Margaret Cotter. He worked in the construction industry for the majority of his career.

Justin’s pride and joy was his family. He was a very loving father and spent as much time as he possible with his daughter. She was the light of his life and he was very proud of her. Justin had quite a few interests. He enjoyed the outdoors and the beauty of nature. Some of the outdoor activities he enjoyed included: dirt biking, fishing, and camping. He shared a lot of these interests with his father and the two made many great memories together enjoying the outdoors. Justin had a big heart and was a very giving and warm person. He will be dearly missed by his family.
