It is with great sadness that we announce, our JuJu Bean has been called home to Jesus. Julian "JuJu" Alexander left this earth with his mother by his side on Friday, July 8th, 2022. JuJu was born on September 27th, 2007 in Vineland, NJ. Julian blessed us for 14 years with his infectious smile. He was such a fighter, overcoming obstacles that no one should face since 6 months of age, teaching everyone around him the true meaning of prayer, faith and love.

Juju is survived by his parents, Melissa Hasty-Cruz and Luis Cruz, Jr.; brothers, Cameron and Elijah; sisters, Alexys and Jai'Ceona; grandparents, Fulton Hasty, Sr., Evelyn Walker and Abel Cortes and Jesusa and Luis Cruz, Sr. JuJu leaves behind to cherish the many blessed memories of him here on earth his aunts, Von, Sasha, Cathy and Kim; uncles, Joshua, Fulton Jr., Isaiah, Eddie and Joseph. He will be deeply missed by his many many cousins, great-aunts and great-uncles.
