Johanna Justin-Jinich ’10

Johanna Justin-Jinich ‘10 was killed by a gunman early this afternoon while working at her job in the Red & Black Cafe.

johana-justinjinichOur deepest condolences to Johanna’s friends and family for this stunning loss. More information is being posted as it comes in. From the Hartford Courant:

Johanna Justin-Jinich, of Fort Collins, Colo., was shot several times at the Red and Black Café inside Broad Street Books. Her assailant, described as thin white man, then fled on foot and remains at large.

[…] “This is a devastating loss for Johanna’s family, friends and for the entire Wesleyan community,” Wesleyan President Michael S. Roth wrote. “Our hearts go out to all those who grieve for Johanna, and we hope all can find comfort in the support of friends, teachers and classmates.”

Wesleyan students had planned a candlelight vigil Wednesday night to remember Justin-Jinich, but in a broadcast email to the Wesleyan community shortly before 7 p.m., officials warned against any such gathering.

Staff from the Office of Behavioral Health are available via the 24 hour on-call system by calling 860-685-2910.

    Paul…..whether she said or did anything at all,and its quite possible she didn’t, it doesn’t warrant taking her life! what an ignorant statement that was to make….i certainly hope her friends and family don’t have to read that!

    paul thats realy in bad taste, she is/was a realy beautiful girl….seems like inside and out…..i am sure he had a thing 4 her and could not deal with it, plus other issues……i know you always here how great the person was, but in this case-it realy seems that she was a great girl and not sure what someone would have to do to deserve this…….

    Paul – whoever you are – im pretty sure you are not from here and you don’t understand how tragic and hard things are for the general wesleyan community and students right now. I would advise you to please avoid talking about someone who just died, and show some respect.
    Its true there are always two sides of a story, and we don’t know who did what to whom. its possible she did or said things to him that “screwed him over”. but its none of our concerns. we have sick people everywhere in this sick american society we live in, and this will never change until the people acknowledge the diseases of this society and decide to change their own conditions. but right now there is a murderer and a victim, and that’s it. lets please respect the dead.

    Pretty girl gets shot by ugly or average looking guy. Oh what a horrible tragedy.

    Of course interviews and tributes will say she was perfect, wonderful, a saint.

    I wonder what she did back in NY to screw this guy over.

    Rest in peace Johanna. I didn’t know her, but I can’t believe how cute and beautiful she looks in that picture… *sigh…

    and now, she’s gone. this should be a wake up call for all of us, and we should remind ourselves of the temporary nature of this life, so that we can live everyday as if its our last. and most importantly, we always make the most of our loved ones while they are still here.
