Fundraiser started to help family that came to live the American Dream.
Friends and family of Charlotte, North Carolina based IT professional Joji Joy have been left shocked and stunned by his sudden death on Monday in the prime of his life. He was just 40.
Joy who hails from Kerala in India is survived by his wife and two sons aged just eight and three.
Coming to the U.S. to live the American Dream, he worked as a Senior Manager in technology giant Cognizant. At the time of his death, he held the position of Architect at TIAA, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Well-wishers of the Joji family have started a Go Fund Me page to help his family in this hour of immense pain and grief after the sudden tragedy.
“Joji is known to be a loving father, husband and a great friend,” says the fundraiser. “His colleagues at work as well as the people of his community remember him for his kindheartedness, solicitude and ever readiness to extend help to people whenever needed.
“He was a hard worker and lived life by the motto ‘aim for excellence and success will follow’. It is indeed a great loss to all of us to know that Joji’s journey in the world was abruptly cut short on November 18.
“His family and friends are all now left behind in great sorrow and despair at their home in Kerala. At this moment of extreme shock and sadness, let us do our best to help them at their time of bereavement.”
The fundraiser has been able to generate $62,631 in one day out of its goal of $120,000
