Justin Wegner

About WEGS

In 2016, Justin had just finished his first year of college at the university of Wisconsin whitewater. A few weeks after returning home from competing in the division 3 college baseball World Series, he was diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumor sarcoma.

Determined to overcome the awful hand he was dealt, Justin continued to live life the only way he knew how, always being humble and kind. Justin battled for over 3 years undergoing multiple surgeries, several rounds of chemotherapy, and radiation. He did not lose his fight with cancer as the fight was never fair from the beginning. With the amazing support of friends and family Justin’s memory lives on forever.
