Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Justin DeVonn Sartin-Scott, a lifelong resident of Portland, Oregon, died unexpectedly on November 15th, 2023. Justin was born October 13th, 1998, in Portland, Oregon to Katrina Sartin and Jeremy Scott. He is survived by his beloved son Justin Jr., brothers Jeremy and Jamaree Scott and his youngest brother Tango Paniagua. Justin graduated from Reynolds High School in 2017.

Justin’s older brother Jeremy Jr was his idol, therefore it was no wonder that Justin learned to crawl at 5 months and walk at 7 months so he could chase after Jeremy. When he learned to walk, he also learned to climb and jump off any and everything. As a child, Justin loved to play basketball and football, play video games and spend time with his friends. He also did very well in school; teachers often commented that he was one of the most well-behaved students they’ve ever had.

At 15, Justin became a father to the most amazing baby. The happy parents named him Justin Jr. Justin took his responsibility as a father very seriously, joining a teen parenting group for young men, taking parenting classes and spending as much time with baby Justin as possible. Of course, having a child so young was not always easy, but the true love and devotion between father and son was undeniable. Justin was also blessed by the fact that Jada is an excellent mother.

Justin was a quiet and private person and kept a close group of trusted friends from a very young age. He was blessed to have the loyalty of his group and the love of his brothers, Jeremy, Jamaree and Tango. Justin had a spark for adventure, travel, and experiencing new things.

This past year, he and his friends traveled to San Diego, Arizona and Miami. His open spirit drove him to seek work driving and when not at work, Justin could be found in the gym boxing, weightlifting, or challenging himself with brutal exercise routines. Justin had no problem being dragged around by his mom on “boring family outings” to the Zoo, the beach or river, OMSI, the Newport Aquarium, carnivals and fairs.

Justin was very photogenic and did side jobs modeling. His smile and laugh could weaken any heart. His style and fashion were immaculate. Fresh to death. Justin would most like to be remembered for his love for his son, family, friends, his devotion to athleticism and of course his good looks.

Our family would like to share our most sincere gratitude for all who helped us during this terrible time, from bringing meals, sending flowers, volunteering expert time and services, and most importantly simply being there if you were able. We thank you so much. May God bless you all.
